HERBS FOR THE MAMA TO BE

Posted on June 15, 2011 at 12:11 PM
HERBS FOR THE MAMA TO BE
By Angie Jenkins, Wolfville's Belly Dancing Herbalist

Is it just me or are there pregnant goddesses everywhere lately??!!  The following herbs are ones that can generally used by women throughout pregnancy to tone, nourish, & relax, & to help promote a happy childbirthing experience & ample breast milk for the new babe.  I have chosen the ones below because of their accessibility (either native plants which can be wild-crafted or are very easy to grow in Nova Scotian gardens).  As a safety precaution, please check first with your health care provider before using any herbal medicines. 

Raspberry Leaf
Strengthens & tones the uterus, contains "fragrine" which encourages the uterus to contract more effectively during labouring, may ease morning sickness, is a pleasant tasting tea. 

Nettle (aka Stinging Nettle) Leaf 
Is an excellent source of plant-based iron, improves the quantity & quality of breast milk, may reduce hemorrhoids, may slow down postpartum bleeding, may help slough off excess weight after the baby is born, may be eaten as a green or prepared as a tea.

Partridge Berry (aka Squaw Vine) Leaf 
Was first used by Native American women who had previously experienced difficult childbirths, strengthens & tones the uterus, is commonly found in our forests!



Lemon Balm Leaf 
Is a relaxing nervine for stressful pregnancies, aids digestion & eases some cases of morning sickness, has gentle anti-depressant properties for melancholic days, makes a delicious hot or cold tea.




If you would like more specific info on how to use the above herbs, please contact me through: www.sisterlotus.com
or call 680-8839.  Also, I am at the Wolfville Farmer's Market every Saturday & am available for quick questions.  If you are in need of a Complete Health Programme created for you, please see my "Consultations" page on my website.

And for the new generation. In a democratic society higher and tertiary education should be a common thing but the reason to get it should be closely determined and studied. We need presentation of our own views being approved.
