This perennial herb found in woodlands near water. It has rose-form leaves, thorny, with silver undersides. Stems are arching round that may reach 3 to 5 feet high and thorny. Flowers are rose-form and white appearing in late spring to early summer. Fruit is red that turns dark when ripe. Raspberries are also cultivated in gardens but the cultivated plant loses most of its medicinal properties.

The wild plant is one of the most potent of herbs with foliage possessing a very active principal, fragine that has a special influence on the female reproductive organs and most importantly the pelvic region and uterus. It is used as a tonic during pregnancy and it will relieve morning sickness. It is an acclaimed remedy for both male and female in case of sterility.

Both the foliage and fruit are used as an aid to easy childbirth in difficult labor. It is well known for its soothing properties. The astringent properties of the wild raspberry are used in the treatment of dysentery and diarrhea. The ripen fruit are eaten as a general tonic to supply iron in anemia and help with general lack of energy. Eat as many fruit as desired.

Make a standard brew from foliage and drink a large cup every morning during pregnancy. Take a small cupful morning and night for other treatments.
