Why is everyone switching to cinnamon tea?  Saw one woman post about it a few days ago saying a family member told her to try it and now everyone is. Its red raspberry leaf tea thats supposed to help with labor.

Cause a lot of people have posted saying it works.

So no research or dr advice just some people on a public forum where anyone can say anything?

How long are you supposed to boil the cinnamon sticks?

By the way if you Google it a lot of information comes up with it being a natural inducer because it aids in thinning and dilating the cervix, it also helps stimulate contractions if yoyr body and baby are ready for birth

Good luck to you!! :)

I know but I tend research the heck out of things to make sure it's something I'm okay with and that's what popped up on medical sites

Is it proven to be safe ? This is interesting,  I've never heard of it before

Dont add cummin! Tastes awful lol I tried it before my appt today and been having contractions(: just started another pot. No cummin this time. Taste way better.

I could barely finish the first cup, don't really feel anything yet though.

I hate the taste and smell of cinnamon, what can I substitute it with?? coz I dont wanna try castor oil
Avatar universal
Cumin, oregano, and basil tea are supposed to do the same as cinnamon tea
10259802 tn?1408880707
Castor oil is a no no. You could get the runs which wouldn't be good while in labor and you could just Google the other reasons why it's not safe. Be safe ladies ! (:

Ijo964 I also had a hard time drinking the tea so my sister told me to add coffee and suger to help with the taste and it did work for me

ljo964 I didn't like the smell either! I just held my nose and drink as quickly as I can...lol
