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 drank RRL tea like a fish through my last pregnancy and I totally swear by it. I had a super speedy labor and an even faster recovery. This time around, unfortunately I keep forgetting to drink my tea!

When I have been drinking it, however, it's a combination of nettle and RRL that I purchased in bulk. You'll be fine drinking it this time around, if it sets off an internal alarm, then just ask your doc or midwife.
