Best Tea for Fertility, Pregnancy, and Birth

Raspberry leaf tea is one of the best herbal teas for women’s health. Whether you are trying to get pregnant, already pregnant, or preparing for your baby’s birth, you’ll benefit from this!

 

Raspberry leaf is traditionally used as a reproductive tonic. It contains vitamins and minerals (like calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, niacin, selenium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and E). When made into a tea or infusion, these nutrients are made easily available to our bodies.

 

Raspberry leaf is a pleasant tasting herbal remedy with a mildly sweet flavor. Some people liken its taste to that of black tea, without the caffeine. Additionally, it is gentle on the stomach. You can find this tea at your local health food store or online at mountainroseherbs.com.

 

Menstrual Helper

Raspberry is a uterine tonic. The leaves contain a compound called fragrine, which helps to simultaneously tone and relax the uterus and pelvic muscles. This makes raspberry leaf tea extremely helpful for soothing menstrual cramping and regulating heavy menstrual bleeding.

 

Reproductive Tonic

Raspberry leaf balances hormones and helps to prepare the body for ovulation when taken during the follicular phase. For best results, should drink 2 to 3 cups daily starting on day 1 of your cycle, and stop during ovulation.

 

Pregnancy and Childbirth

Midwives often recommend raspberry leaf starting during the 2nd trimester. Its nutritional helps to nourish the mother and baby, and its uterine toning properties help to prepare the uterus for birth. Drinking 2 cups daily during the last trimester helps to balance the uterine muscles, enabling it to contract effectively during birth.

 

Postpartum

Raspberry is astringent, which makes it helpful in stopping bleeding and swelling, as well as restoring tone to the uterus after delivery. Caution about over-consumption postpartum, as its astringency may affect breast milk supply.
