Pregnancy Teas

Has anyone drank any of those organic pregnancy teas? I have heard that Rasberrry leaf is good for strengthening the uterus. The tea my husband bought for me has that in it, plus strawberry leaf, nettle leaf, spearmint, fennel fruit, rose hips, alfalfa leaf, and lemon verbena leaf. On babycenter.com it mentions that some of these herbs could cause uterine stimulation and a miscarriage. But my due date is in exactly 1 week. So if it starts up labor it shouldn't be a problem, right? I will, of course, ask my midwife about the tea and get her OK to proceed....but I was just wondering if any of you ladies have an opinon or experience with the tea as well.

Right now I am just sticking with Red Raspberry Leaf tea, all it does is tone and strengthen the uterus to prepare it for birth.
I am also only 36w3d so I do not want to cause contractions just yet.
Asking your midwife is the best thing to do.
