Pregnancy Tea

by One of our readers

December 2005

My favorite tea to ensure a healthy pregnancy consists of equal parts of Red Raspberry, Alfalfa, Lemon Balm, and Plantain. I drank this daily when I was carrying my twins, who were born to term.

Since then, several women who previously could not conceive or carry a baby to term have tried this tea blend, and are now proud mothers (though that is not actual proof the herbs were responsible). It is primarily a nutritive formula; the Red Raspberry helps strengthen the uterus, the Lemon Balm eases stress, and the Plantain adds internal soothing.

From our Mailbox

Hi: Just wanted to let you know that I received my books on Monday, May 2. Everything was just perfect. My favorite so far is the cookbook Nourishing Traditions. What a wealth of information it contains! I am amazed at how very naive and ignorant I am with respect to the manufacturing and marketing of our foods. I have shared so much with my husband and, as a result, we are committed to making continual and life long changes. I have to say also that The How to Herb Book is continually found in one of my children's hands. They are quite open to learning and trying. May your business continue to bless those who find it and may God continue to Bless your business! I will place an order for the herbs as soon as I determine which ones my family would most benefit from.

With much gratitude.

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
