When I was carrying my babies, I kept a pitcher of Red Raspberry tea made up in the refrigerator so I could drink several glasses a day.
Red Raspberry leaf has a medically proven and trusted track record in helping strengthen the womb of a pregnant woman, and it is also reported to be effective in restoring the womb after delivering.
I mixed in some Alfalfa so I could double the nutritional value of my daily tea. If I felt bloated, like I was holding water, I would add Nettle leaf to the tea. Peppermint was added for flavor and to aid digestion.
After your baby is born try some of Mama's Milk Tea. It will help you nursing mamas increase your milk supply and the nutritional value of your milk.
Ladies, while you are fixing some up for yourself, serve your man some too. Red Raspberry has very positive medicinal effects on men as well. Increased fertility for instance. That's why animal breeders add Red Raspberry to feed to increase male fertility. Oh, and they'll love the taste. Your man may grow to like it above all other teas. It's one of the favorites in our house.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...
"Seven years ago there was a flurry of warnings over the web not to use large amounts of raspberry leaf(only European raspberry) during early pregnancy. I always take the safe road, so I cautioned pregnant ladies to only drink a cup or two a day of raspberry until they were 5 months along. Now trusted researchers go on record as saying that Raspberry is safe for pregnant women. Two sources that are respected and helpful are GrowingLife.com and AmericanPregnancy.org." Debi Pearl
- This dry herb mixture can also be made into a tincture. As a tincture it would be more effective than as a tea. However, we prefer it as a tea because of its great flavor.
- Mama's Red Raspberry Brew can be used to benefit men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
- It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
- As is the case with most herbs, this mixture should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.
