Interestingly the [Red Raspberry] berries are said to provide many of the medicinal factors of the leaves. We have been encouraged by midwives to eat freely of the berries, if possible, for the same good effect during pregnancy–a lovely medicine!
Since some people never get used to the taste of the tea a good way to use the leaves is to make a green drink. Our “pregnancy green drink”, to which we have grown so accustomed that we can hardly imagine pregnancy without it.
Directions for Making the Pregnancy Green Drink
It is made thus, to a cup or more of pineapple juice in a blender container, add a handful of Red Raspberry leaves, a handful of comfrey leaves and a few alfalfa leaves. Blend until the fibers of the leaves are broken down and drink immediately. You can add a couple of ice cubes or a little cold water if you want an icy or thinner drink.
