Preparing for labor/delivery
I've never tried drinking herbal teas or taking supplements for preparing my body for labor. I thought I remember seeing something about raspberry tea.....
Can anyone reccommend some to help me prepare? I'm almost 30 weeks and am shocked to realize it's getting that close :rolleyes:

Although, I've never used the pain medication, I find myself starting to get worried about the birth? Do any of you ladies worry about it as well, or am I just silly :p?

I always recommend NORA tea. It's the BEST all around tea you could use. The ingredients are: Nettles, Oat Straw, Raspberry Leaf, & Alfalfa.

Here is a great ebook about it: nora tea pdf free ebook download from riversidemidwifery.com

Yes, I was going to suggest NORA as well. :) I buy the herbs in bulk from Ameriherb and it makes enough to last several months because you have to buy in 1-pound minimum quantities... I've even shared it with my pregnant goats, LOL! It is also good for post-partum and breastfeeding support (or so I've been told). :)

It crosses my mind, and I'm only 17 weeks :) I think it's normal to be thinking about it! Good luck with the teas!

I never heard of NORA tea but I'll have to remember that. I drank lots of red raspberry leaf tea because I loved the taste. I drank just tons of different teas because I craved them.

I was just about to recommend NORA tea too :) NORA*tea - Endeavors In Domestic Art - endeavors in domestic art.

I'm actually getting ready to order the herbs so I can make it and start drinking it soon.
