Bump to Birth Happy Pregnancy Tea
Herbs can be very beneficial, especially during pregnancy. Certain herbs can strengthen you physically, ease your pregnancy discomforts and prepare your body for birth.
The pregnancy tea blend created by Lleaon Rao, Herbalist and author of Bump to Birth, does just that! Lleaon created this special pregnancy tea recipe to help soon-to-be mama’s have a happy and healthy pregnancy. And she is generously letting me share her special Bump to Birth Happy Pregnancy Tea recipe from her new book with you 🙂
What makes this tea so beneficial for pregnancy and childbirth?
Read about the herbs included in this tea and you’ll see why it’s so important to consume this pregnancy tea throughout your pregnancy:
- Prevents miscarriage and postpartum hemorrhage by helping tone and relax the uterus.
- Eases morning sickness.
- Reduces pain during labor and after birth.
- Tones the muscles used during labor and delivery and eliminates many of the reasons for a painful delivery and prolonged recovery.
- Assists in the production of plentiful breast milk.
