Childbirth Tea combines Raspberry Leaf and Squawvine Herb to create a tea that tones and prepares the uterus for labor and delivery.
RASPBERRY LEAF - may be used to offset morning sickness. It is sweet, nutritive, and astringent, nourishing mother and baby and allowing for uterine toning. The toning of the uterus may help prevent miscarriage, lessen the likelihood of cervical tearing, and support a quick and healthy labor. Raspberry leaf is said to ease postpartum pain, breast discomfort, and help enrich breast milk.
SQUAWVINE HERB - is an old Native American Indian medicine for the female. It has the ability to support the pregnant woman by preparing her for labor and delivery. Dilation may be quick and contractions strong and effective accompanied by less pain. After the bearing of the child, Squawvine herb may help with postpartum depression and also has the ability to enhance lactation.
These herbs have a long history of supporting pregnancy, labor, delivery, the postpartum period, and lactation. They have also been used to help conception.
