Morning sickness is known for its horrendous symptoms of nausea and vomiting, although a real nuisance it actually affects around 80% of women and is caused not by the baby but by hormones produced by the placenta. These hormones are responsible for keeping your pregnancy going, some may say that this is a good sign!
Typically the symptoms start around the 4th week and usually stopping around 12th-14th weeks, but for some women it can extend longer. If the vomiting becomes really severe then you may be suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which leads to dehydration and requires medical attention.
Take the edge off Morning Sickness with our all natural, caffeine free, organic tea blend, which has been specifically formulated and regulated by our master herbalist.
Raspberry leaves are a larder of nutrients and are a tonic for the entire body. They contain high levels of calcium, which acts on the nervous system and help to relieve pain. Drinking raspberry leaf tea in the last trimester of pregnancy helps to prepare for the memorable and emotionally supportive delivery of a new bundle of joy.
In preparation for birth drink one cup daily during the last two months of pregnancy and freely during labour. For the organised, make ice cubes, as these are particularly refreshing in case of lack of thirst. Raspberry leaf tea can also help with the expulsion of the afterbirth post delivery and will help to restore uterine and reproductive health and help to promote the flow of milk whilst breastfeeding.
After childbirth nourishment and replenishment are essential for a new and nursing mother. Dame nature not only supplies the equipment to breastfeed but the plant allies to support and sustain a new mother and her bundle of joy at this precious time.
Our lactation tea does more than it says on the tin! We have created a nutritious blend of carefully selected herbs to help boost healing and fight fatigue for mothers after birth and to promote the healthy supply of breast milk during nursing. Galactagogue herbs stimulate the production of milk. Galactagogues (translated from the Greek ‘galacto’ for milk and ‘agogos’ meaning flow), which are herbs that stimulate milk production. However, they also found that many galactagogues are also powerful uterine stimulants and may cause contractions, so it’s important not to use them during pregnancy. For optimum health and healthy breast milk production, drink up to three cups of lactation blend per day, relax and enjoy!
