It is however inherently imprecise with studies indicating an overall accuracy for determining the diameter of the cervix at between 48-56%.

to wrap it all up, there is very little research on human consumption of red raspberry leaf during pregnancy. Some people have reported side effects with the use of raspberry leaf, such as diarrhea, constipation, nausea, but these are commonly reported during pregnancy. And it’s not known if they can be attributed to the raspberry leaf. The use of raspberry leaf was linked to an increase in cesarean in one retrospective study. However, the study was very limited by the fact that it only included Herbalism, Natural Labour Induction, Natural Labour, Induction Labor, Petri Dish, Ebb, Raspberry Leaf Tea, Apgar Score

In a society where we are already seeing record levels of depression and anxiety, we are looking at babies whose most critical stage of development is spent in the care of a primary care giver who is impacted by poor mental health.If the individual and social costs are so great, how can we continue to say things like a healthy baby is “all that matters”?
