Strengthen your uterus
Raspberry leaf is a toning astringent herb traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine as an antispasmodic and uterine tonic. It is primarily used in the last trimester of pregnancy to help prepare the body for labour and the uterus for childbirth. Raspberry leaf has also been traditionally used in Western herbalism as a general female reproductive tonic to help manage dysmenorrhoea.
Midwives have used Raspberry Leaf since ancient times as a uterine tonic, particularly throughout the last trimester of pregnancy, where it is used to prepare the uterus for childbirth. Due to its antispasmodic properties, this toning herb is traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine to relieve heavy, painful periods (dysmenorrhoea).
It is thought Raspberry Leaf contains a constituent named ‘fragarine’, which has been shown to have a relaxing effect on the pregnant uterus. Studies suggest that raspberry leaf may regulate the action of the uterine muscle, facilitating labour.
