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.

I've been drinking Yogi Mother to Be tea pretty much every day since I got pregnant. I drink raspberry leaf tea when I get my period to help with the cramping and nausea, so I figured MTB tea would help with that, and it does.

I think the main reason they warn you against herbal teas is because they haven't been tested by the FDA and therefore they have no conclusive evidence pointing one way or the other.
