Re: Red Raspberry leaf Tea???? What's the deal?

I have never heard anything about it reducing the risk of PE or increasing the risk of PE. the tea is simply the raspberry leaves of a raspberry bush. i drank it the entire last trimester of my pregnancy diligently. 3-4 cups a day. i have read it does tone your uterus and help the second part of lab...

Re: Fish oil vs. lda

I took fish oil my entire first pregnancy and developed severe PE and delivered at 33wks. I took LDA the second pregnancy and went 40wks PE free. Who knows but i think LDA is probably a better way to go if your goal is to think your blood.

Re: Aspirin Help, please?

I would take it. My doc was the same way. I had severe PE with my first at 33wks (now 3.5) and went 40wks the second time with no PE and the only real diff was i took LDA. i have no underlying disorders. the good possible outcomes outweigh the risks in my opinion. good luck!
