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 may actually have the same tea. my best friend got it for me and she drank it during her last pregnancy. i havent actually had it because drinking anything warm made my queezy stomach that much worse. i have thought a few times about drinking it lately since i feel much better than i was.
and i think as far as any of the herbs causing miscarriage or any problems they are referring to each herb itself, not a little bit of each together, if that makes sense?
