Does raspberry leaf tea help you get pregnant?

It sounds like an old wives' tale.


Answer by  MedStudent01 (1131)

It sounds like an old wives' tale because it is. If anything, the tea should not be drunk during early pregnancy due to possible early labor and potential for spontaneous abortion.

Drinking respberry left tea, or any other tea or specific beverage will not help you get pregnant. Becoming as healthy as possible can certainly have an effect on fertility however.

It is indeed folk lore. Some people believe that raspberry leaf tea increases fertility and can induce labor. However there is no scientific evidence that shows this to be true.


Answer by  gmun (603)

There is no proof that raspberry leaf tea will help you get pregnant, this is highly unlikely, however many herbalists claim that it is helpful for pregnant women to drink raspberry leaf tea as it contains essential vitamins. It is likely that it is soothing, as is any herbal tea, and this is where the positive effect lies.
