Hi doc,

Dear Bubu
There is no evidence to suggest the use of raspberry leaves to strengthen the cervix. The only known method of dealing with cervical incompetence is the use of cerclage which has the use of fairly high success rate if performed by an experienced surgeon at the correct stage of pregnancy.
