Pregnancy Tea Plus Helps Prepare Your Uterus for Labor and Birth
This herbal combination is similar to the Herb Lore Pregnancy Tea but has the addition of Squaw Vine, a late pregnancy tonic herb. It has also been traditionally used to help strengthen and tone the uterus in preparation for labor and birth but is recommended for use during the last six weeks of pregnancy only.
Ingredients: Organic Red Raspberry Leaf, Squaw Vine, Dandelion Leaf, Nettle Leaf, Alfalfa, Chamomile, Oatstraw, and Peppermint Leaf.
With this standard dosing suggestion (for adults) of two droppersful three times a day, tincture bottles typically last this long:
- 2oz. bottle will last two weeks
- 4oz. bottle will typically last about a month.
A Droppersful = Bulb Squeeze = Approximately 30 drops of liquid tincture. Glass tube will only be partially filled with the tincture. Taking the tincture directly under the tongue and avoiding any liquids or foods for at least 15 minutes afterward provides the best results.
For the non-alcohol version of the tincture, the herbs are extracted in vegetable glycerine and distilled water. This version is sweeter and doesn't have the "bite" that the alcohol version has.
For the regular version of this nursing tea tincture, the herbs are extracted in organic brandy. The alcohol will extract the medicinal properties of the herbs more fully.
NOTE: Due to the Alfalfa in the combination, this product is not suitable for those on blood-thinning medications.
Helpful Hint: Ice chips made from the tea (or tincture) provides nutrition and fluids to the new mother during labor. Adding a bit of honey provides extra energy. This will also help keep the uterus working strongly and efficiently throughout labor and birth, helping to facilitate placenta delivery and aid in postpartum recovery. If using the tincture to make ice cubes, use 2 droppersful (or squeezes) of the tincture per 8oz cup of water. This is the equivalent of one cup of herbal tea.
