The Miracle Pregnancy Tea

Red Raspberry leaf tea has shown tons of benefits before, during, and after pregnancy, as well as being considered one of the safest for consumption. It is full of vitamins and minerals to include: vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin B complex, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, sulfate, phosphate, magnesium, manganese, zinc, chromium and fragrine (an alkaloid that tones tissues, especially beneficial for the uterus and pelvic muscles).
Raspberry leaf tea has anti-abortient properties, aiding in miscarriage prevention, as well as increasing fertility in both men and women, especially when combined with red clover. By toning the uterus, it helps to prevent post-partum hemorrhage, as well as help uterine contractions be more efficient (though does not strengthen contractions) during labor. This tea has shown to relieve nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, cold, and fever, reducing the symptoms of morning sickness and promoting immune function.
Raspberry leaf tea has its best results when consumed as one or more cups daily for several months, though some report benefits with just a few cups. Fresh leaves harvested spring to mid-summer yield maximum potency. They can be used fresh or dried away from light. Many grocery stores also carry the leaves already prepared in tea bags. Hot tea is made with one cup boiling water poured over one teaspoon of dried leaves and steeped for 15 minutes. It can be drank warm or cold or even poured into ice cube trays, frozen, and eaten as popsicles!
Drink up and heal up!

Joann Woolley I have heard that drinking red raspberry leaf tea is not recommended while breastfeeding - but I don't know why. Do you have info on this?
