22 Dec Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus)
The berry of this plant is often used in gourmet desserts, but herbalists obtain more satisfaction from the leaves. These are effective in treating diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, and morning sickness in pregnancy.
It is also thought to help prevent miscarriages and help you during labour by making the pain less and reducing the chance of haemorrhaging.
Do not self-diagnose, use only under the supervision of your Health Care Professional.
