Birth Prep Tonic #2 - Herbal Tincture
Ah, the final month! It's feeling like the home stretch now.
You're thinking much more about the birth. Prepping in all the right ways for you.
Perhaps you're wondering what else you can do to help prepare your body leading up to the big day?
Enter the wise women's traditional birthy herbs. With a modern twist: the herbal tincture.
A herbal tincture is an alcohol base extraction of the herb. It gives a high potency preparation which means you don't need to take much to get the medicinal effect.
It has high absorbency and fast-acting properties. Given that only a very small/negligible amount of alcohol is consumed, it remains a very safe and effective way of using herbs. Taken as directed, tinctures are considered safe for late pregnancy. * See exceptions below.
The Birth Prep Tonic #2 is a Naturopath formulated, traditional blend of birth prep (parturient) herbs to help support the body in late pregnancy and in preparation for labour.
Suitable from 38 weeks only. When used as directed, the bottle will last until 40 weeks. Another bottle can be used from 40 weeks until labour begins if required.
Ideally used after Birth Prep Tonic #1 (suitable from 34-38 weeks).
This Naturopath formulated blend is to support the body in readiness for labour and birth.
Contains: Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides), Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus), Squaw Vine (Mitchella repens), Cramp bark (Viburnum opulus), Schisandra berries (Schisandra chinensis)
Specific dosage regime is included beginning at 38 weeks, until 40 weeks.
These herbs will not 'induce' labour. They work at prepping and toning the uterus for the work ahead.
Comes with my Top 10 Doula Tips for late pregnancy.
I have been using these herbal tinctures for their parturient/partus preparator properties within my naturopathic practise over the past 20 years.
This product is also available within the Naturopath's Birth Prep Herbal Tincture Pack.
