Horsetail (Equisetum arvense folia): Horsetail’s high silica content helps to strengthen the connective tissue and tones the uterus. A diuretic, it helps to prevent urinary irritations like cystitis. Its astringent properties help reduce the risk of haemorrhage and bleeding.
Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris herba): Taken during pregnancy to prevent spot bleeding. Also taken to strengthen and prepare the uterus for a speedy birth and post birth to assist in the recovery of the womb.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis herba): During pregnancy and post birth, Lemon Balm helps to relieve depression and calms the heart. As a carminative, it helps to soothe nausea and vomiting and stimulates a poor appetite.
Nettle (Urtica dioica herba): Nettle leaf contains strengthening minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, trace minerals, vitamins (A and C) and enzymes - all important nutrients in pregnancy for a healthy mother and baby.
Raspberry leaves (Rubus idaeus herba): Effective in suppressing nausea and morning sickness. Regular use during pregnancy helps to build strength of the uterine muscle, which promotes effective and less painful uterine contractions at birth, thus shortening its duration. Raspberry leaf supports recovery after birth also and stimulates milk production.
