Red raspberry leaf tea is a uterine tonic used by Native Americans for thousands of years. It tones your uterus by helping to "focus" your Braxton Hicks contractions. Think of its job as helping your uterus do more effective exercising while you are pregnant. It helps to tone the uterus after delivery as well, shrinking it back to size more quickly and reducing bleeding.
The first week you start with 1 capsules of 5W, 3x's a day. Week two it's 2 capsules, 3x's a day. Week 3-5 3 capsules 3x's a day. Every time I take a 5W I also take an evening primrose oil capsule and twice a day I drink the tea. It's a lot to take but I want this baby to come!!
Here's me in all my glory, 34 weeks. Jersey Girl weighs 5 pounds, 7 oz. She's growing great, she's in the 56th percentile and everything is looking SO good. She's being monitored twice a week so if there's anything new we'll catch it! I'll be induced December 18th but cross your fingers she'll come sooner. We're watching, waiting, and praying things continue to go well and we can't wait to hold our girlie.
