The Medicine Woman

Pregnancy and Nursing Support Organic Herbal Tea

Regular price $13.00
An organic loose-leaf tea made up of:
Nettle leaf                   Urtica dioica
Raspberry leaf            Rubus idaeus
Chamomile flower      Matricaria recutita
Ginger root                 Zingiber officinale

THE MEDICINE WOMAN Pregnancy and Nursing Support tea blend honours the rite of passage of pregnancy, childbirth and nursing.  It provides gentle, wholesome nourishment for mother and developing baby during this extraordinary time of growth.  An affectionate folk name for nettle is 'milk of the earth' because it nourishes us like mother's milk does and for this reason is often to use to literally enhance the quality of breast milk.  Raspberry leaf is a tonic for the uterus to strengthen the uterine walls to hold the growing baby and can assist the efficiency of the labour process and the expulsion of the afterbirth.  I love handling dried raspberry leaf as it has a lovely soft springy texture that conjures up images of lying in a soothing bed of the herb!  Chamomile is well considered as an aid for digestion, is calming to the nervous system and can be useful with cramps and restless legs.  Ginger can aid digestion, minimise nausea and is anti-inflammatory.     

A wonderful natural source of vitamins and minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron, iodine, potassium, zinc and vitamins A, C and E.  An excellent tea for energy levels.  

This blend can be enjoyed pre-conception and throughout pregnancy and nursing.  Up to 3 cups a day.    

A pleasant tasting tea with a hint of sweet and spice.
Caffeine free.  Nothing added - just herbs.
