Raspberry Leaf has been traditionally used during the later stage of pregnancy to strengthen and tone the uterus in preparation for delivery and facilitate labour. Research suggests that Raspberry leaf contains an active principle which is known as ‘fragarine’ which is considered to help by relaxing the uterine muscle as well as helping to initiate and coordinate contractions.
