Re: Red Raspberry Leaf tea opinions

I had almost the same experience. My labors are all on the long side but my third was absolutely ridiculously long. The major difference was that I didn't drink RRL. During my second I drank it but had tons of Braxton hicks, every little movement caused a contraction and also some early minor dilation. My MW told me not to drink RRL tea AT ALL during pregnancy think that a as what caused the BH's. My 3rd labor was on and off for a week. It kept starting and fizzling out. Even at fully dilated my contractions were irregular, non painful and were getting farther apart. Pushing took forever because my contractions were so weak. I hope it was the lack of RRL because I don't want to go through that again.
