Raspberry leaf tea

Advice please! Is it worth it? When to start? Are any of the other brands as good as the hottea mama? Thankyou!

I’ve got Hottea mama and it says on the box you can start from 32 weeks. I started at 35 weeks x

@Souad there’s alot of controversy around it , my midwife said 36 but im 34 this week so thought id go down the middle. I just really begrudge paying £6 a box!!

Can’t say if it’s worth it in terms of working as I couldn’t drink enough for any result I’m sure. I hated it, found it disgusting even hidden in things. I don’t like tea in general so it may be different if you do, but personally wasn’t worth it for me as I could not stand the stuff. As for when to start, I was he adult advised not to start before 37 weeks so that’s when I started but others start from a lot earlier

Heavily* not he adult 🤦🏼‍♀️

@Vic I know well I did some some different boxes in Holland and barret which was half the price x

@Meg this is the other thing, i havent seen one person say they like it 🤣🤣 but just been out and bought some pineapple and cranberry juice as ive seen people mix mocktails. Im definitely coffee over tea but this is another reason i dont fancy paying the hot tea mama one!

I went to Holland and barret and they said that's the best one out there. I mix it with a fruit tea I like and I like it over ice. X

@Vic yeah I thought how bad can it be, I’m sure I can just guzzle it down or hide it in something but nope, pregnancy tastebuds are something else 😂😂 that sounds good! Supposedly pineapple is supposed to help too! yeah I bought mine off of Amazon because it had great reviews and even said it tasted better than others, how bad are the others is what I want to know 😂

I drank it from about 34 weeks I think, drank it every day, increasing to two a day etc.. baby was over a week late and I was in labour for 48 hours 😂 so it definitely didn’t work for me

@Caitlin fabulous 😂

@Caitlin I was the same as u had it 3 times a day from 34 weeks had the most traumatic induction resulting in emergency c section 😩

CS* not cds 😂😂 my autocorrect tonight🤦🏼‍♀️

Im buying some tomorrow 😬😬😬
