Red Raspberry Leaf Tea for Pregnancy
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea is considered by herbalists, midwives and healers to be a powerful uterine tonic. This mild, delicious tea is high in vitamins and minerals that strengthen and tone pelvic muscles and encourage optimal functioning. Some of the benefits attributed to this herb:
-increases fertility (in both women and men!)
-decreases morning sickness
-improves muscle tone in the pelvic region
-toned uterine muscles decreases the chance of miscarriage and postpartum hemorrhage and can lead to shorter, more effective labor and delivery
This is a gentle herb that has been used by women for hundreds of years. There are no known side effects of the herb but, as always, I encourage you to do your own research and make sure that this choice is a good one for you.
Red raspberry leaf tea is widely available in health food stores and many mainstream markets and is delicious hot or iced. It’s a great substitute for sugary or caffeinated beverages before and during pregnancy, as well as during birth.
