Pregnancy Tea is traditional plant medicine to support you through these changes. A traditional European midwifery formula to care, nourish and strengthen your body. Pregnancy Tea tempers symptoms and supports your body as your baby grows.
Take Pregnancy Tea from week 12 for ultimate support.
Ingredients: certified organic:
Horsetail: Horsetail's (Equisetum arvense) high silica content helps to strengthen the connective tissue and tones the uterus. It supports fluid balance and uterine blood vessel health.
Lady's Mantle: Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris) is taken during pregnancy to help strengthen and prepare the uterus for a normal birth. Post birth it assists in the recovery of the womb.
Lemon Balm: During pregnancy and post birth, Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) supports balanced mood and calms the heart. As a carminative, it helps to soothe queasiness and stimulates a poor appetite.
Nettle: Nettle leaf (Urtica dioica) contains strengthening minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, trace minerals, vitamins (A and C) and enzymes - all important nutrients in pregnancy for a healthy mother and baby.
Raspberry leaf: Raspberry leaf (Rubus idaeus) is effective in supporting morning queasiness. Regular use during pregnancy helps to build strength of the uterine muscle, to support healthy uterine contractions at birth. Raspberry leaf supports recovery after birth and supports milk production.
St John's Wort: St John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) alleviates tiredness and fatigue. It is renowned for strengthening the nervous system and is beneficial for sufferers of worry during their pregnancy.
Yarrow: Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) aids the elimination of urinary irritants to support bladder health. Yarrow is a vein tonic which supports vein and capillary strength.
Use 1 level tsp (1g) per cup (150ml) and infuse with boiling water for 5-10 minutes.
Dose: From week 13 to week 40, take 2-3 cups each day.
Traditionally in Europe, this formula is recommended from early pregnancy onwards. Raspberry leaf has a cumulative effect so the longer its taken throughout the pregnancy, the better its effect on the uterine muscle. While it is suitable to take right throughout pregnancy, many women feel comfortable starting Pregnancy Tea at week 13.
Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist, see your health professional.
