Pregnancy Tea

Through Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, we attempt to bring the inner environment into a favorable state for pregnancy. Different foods and drinks can help to nourish your body and help to place it in an optimal state in preparation for pregnancy. Let's look at our tea formula that can help you in your pregnancy journey.

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Red raspberry is known for its sweet, nutritious berries however its leaves also hold a lot of nutrients and are sometimes made into herbal teas for health benefits. Red raspberry leaf tea is particularly popular for its potential to help pregnant women deal with the adverse symptoms associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

One study looked at the use of herbal remedies among 600 pregnant women. It found that 52% of women on a habitual basis made use of a herbal remedy and that 63% of them had tried drinking red raspberry leaf tea.

Benefits of Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea is generally recommended for the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, but some women drink it in the first trimester to alleviate nausea and vomiting.

Many women claim that drinking red raspberry tea shortens labor. A study conducted among 108 women found that those who drank red raspberry leaf tea in the final trimester of pregnancy experienced a shorter first stage of labor. In addition, it indicated that these women who consistently drank red raspberry leaf tea during their pregnancy had decreased use of forceps and other interventions, as well as a decrease in the probability of pre and post-term labor.

Red raspberry leaves contain fragarine, A plant compound used in herbal medicines to help tone and tighten the muscles in the pelvic area as well as the walls of the uterus, which may reduce menstrual cramping caused by the contractions of these muscles. In addition, it may aid in helping to make delivery easier.

We use thousands of herbs in Chinese Medicine and each formula is uniquely customized to each patient's condition. The value of the herbs comes from using them in the appropriate combinations and correct amounts to gain their utmost effectiveness.
