Bump to Birth Happy Pregnancy Tea

Are you pregnant or wanting to get pregnant in the near future? If so, you’ll definitely want to bookmark or pin this happy pregnancy tea recipe from the brand new ebook, Bump to Birth!

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 πŸ™‚


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.
  • Helps make labor faster by encouraging the uterus to let go and function without tension.
  • Studies show that women that consume Red Raspberry Leaf have a reduced incidence of artificial rupture of membranes, forceps delivery or cesarean.



  • Nourishes both mother and fetus.
  • Eases leg cramps and other muscle spasms.
  • Helps diminish muscle pains in the uterus, in the legs and elsewhere.
  • A superb source of vitamin K and increases available hemoglobin, both of which decrease the likelihood of postpartum hemorrhage and slows postpartum bleeding.
  • Reduces hemorrhoids. Nettle’s mild astringency and general nourishing action tightens and strengthens blood vessels, helps maintain arterial elasticity and improves venous resilience.
  • Increases the richness and amount of breast milk.



  • Rich in calcium and magnesium.
  • Helps relieve anxiety and restlessness.
  • Helps relieve leg cramps and other muscle cramps.



  • Helps relieve morning sickness.
  • Improves baby’s Vitamin K levels at birth if Mom drinks during pregnancy.



  • Rich in antioxidants that nourish both mom and baby.
  • Helps the body relax.

    At what point during pregnancy should mamas-to-be should start drinking this? I’ve seen conflicting opinions on drinking red raspberry tea too early in pregnancy. My own mid-wife advised against it before the third-trimester.

    • Primally Inspired

      Nina, I would always listen to your own mid-wife. I’ve seen no definitive or conclusive studies suggesting not to drink it throughout pregnancy. I know many women who have drank it all throughout pregnancy and there are also many midwives and herbalists that also recommend to drink it throughout the entire pregnancy. Lleaon, who is a qualified herbalist and the creator of this recipe, suggests 1 cup a day in 1st trimester and to increase consumption per trimester (as noted in the article).

      If anyone has concerns, please consult with your own doctor, mid-wife or qualified herbalist.

        Thanks for your response! Sorry to be daft, but I re-read the article again, and I still don’t see where it says, to quote you, “1 cup a day in 1st trimester and to increase consumption per trimester (as noted in the article).”

        Was there another link I was supposed to click on to read? Or is this something she mentions in her book? (Which looks excellent!)

        • Primally Inspired

          Ohmigosh I apologize! That part must have got erased (or somehow not put in) my article. I will put it back in!! Thank you so much for making me aware that it wasn’t in there!! So sorry!

          And I completely agree – It’s always best to do your own research and I’m actually really glad you brought it up. I would never want to recommend something that I think would be harmful and think it’s very important for people to do their own research and to ask questions! Congrats on your pregnancy!!!

        I also want to add that I have an herbal remedy book that advises against drinking Red Raspberry Leaf prior to third trimester.

    Wow! What great tips. I’m definitely sharing this post!

    I literally just found out I’m expecting my first (shh, secret!) and jumped on buying all of this. The comment above gave me a bit of worry, but I researched it and even WebMD recommends it during pregnancy (meaning, it’s not just a bunch of bloggers touting it’s effectiveness). One person also made the point that ONE study showed it “might” be dangerous in early pregnancy so a lot of American doctors have told patients to avoid it, but in reality, women have been using red raspberry tea for literally thousands of years to promote healthy pregnancy. So I think I’ll go with thousands of years of success stories over one study showing it MIGHT be dangerous. So happy you shared this, Kelly πŸ™‚

      omg, congrats, Katy!!! That’s so exciting!! I totally agree with you – it’s something I personally would take from the very beginning to optimize a healthy pregnancy. I wish you the best!! xoxo

      Katy, I certainly didn’t mean to cause anyone worry! I am a first-time mama to be and I have high regards for herbal medicine and all the years of experience people have had using it. I am a scientist by trade, so I like to do thorough research and lay it all out on the table before I make my decisions, it’s just in my nature. When I come across conflicting information, I just want to do the right thing! It was my hope that by asking that question, a little more light could be shed on the topic.

      Congratulations to you on your pregnancy!

    Great recipe Kelly! I drank this during all four of my pregnancies. I like to drink it as an unsweetened iced tea (or maybe with a tad bit of honey), and it’s good with chia seeds soaked in it as well! I left out the oatstraw, though, because I’m allergic to oats – it’s still wonderful without it. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing this article! I’ve pinned it to my pregnancy & birth board!

    Actually calcium has not been proven to help reduce leg cramps. When I was a kid I got leg cramps all the time so my doc gave me calcium pills and they didn’t do anything for them.

    • Primally Inspired

      Magnesium is the mineral that helps prevent leg cramps.

      • Avatar

        I was told it was Potassium that prevented cramping. Anytime I cramped I had to eat a banana. Maybe I heard wrong?

        • Avatar

          Potassium can help leg cramps, but magnesium helps so much more and is often overlooked. I recommend reading the book “The Magnesium Miracle” by Carolyn Dean M.D. N.D. To get an understanding of why.

      We’re yout consuming dairy products? Everytime I drank milk or had dairy products as a child my legs hurt. Well the doctor said I was allergic to dairy. As an adult dairy still makes me feel gunk so in avoid as well as the research I’ve done in have found that milk doesn’t insert actual calcium into your bones it leaches it out and causes bone spurs. My bones hurt whenever I eat or drink something that has dairy so I can see how this may be happening. So I take all natural plant derived calcium magnesium. Sonim just wondering if you were consuming dairy at the same time as trying to get rid of the leg cramps as a child

    I’ve been drinking raspberry leaf tea for about a year. I had researched and read that it was also good for helping to become pregnant. While unfortunately that has not happened as yet I will say it had the added benefit of regulating my menstrual cycles so that pregnancy is more likely. When my mom was pregnant with her 4th and 5th child her midwife recommended it all during her pregnancy. She could tell if she wasn’t drinking it. Those were her easiest deliveries of the 5. I had not heard about the other herbs though. I will have to look into adding those once I am pregnant. Would this work as a cold tea? I’ve been making my raspberry leaf tea a gallon at a time into iced tea so that I don’t have to brew it every day. I’m just not sure of the effectiveness if its kept for several days (I make it twice a week). There are a lot of herbs in this that I don’t know much about.

    I made this today, and it’s lovely. I did add some peppermint leaves as well, as I don’t care for the taste of oatstraw or nettles. It adds a nice layer of flavor, but is only for personal preference. I like that it’s a mild tea. And I LOVE the high nutrition content. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    What amount should be consumed for trying to conceive?

  9. Avatar

    Does anyone know how long dried herbs like this are effective/potent for? I have a lot of red raspberry leaf left from my first pregnancy (purchased 3 years ago). Is this still good?

  10. Avatar

    do you know where I can buy organic loose leaf teas in the UK? Can’t seem to see these varieties on Amazon uk website either. thanks

    I am 34 weeks, do you think drinking the tea starting now would be beneficial even tho I haven’t the rest of the pregnancy?

  12. Avatar

    Can this be used while nursing as well? Ive had low supply issues. Beyond that are there any other benefits for me to drink this? I wish I would have known about this when I was pregnant!

  13. Avatar

    Has anyone tried something not in the mint family for flavor? (Dried fruit, etc). I loved adding peppermint during my first pregnancy, but we’re planning to TTC #2 soon and I’m still nursing #1 (18 months). I know pregnancy and milk supply can be tricky in and of itself, without adding something that may reduce supply.

    I am trying to avoid being GBS positive like my last pregnancy. One of the things I was told to do is to drink one cup of echinacea tea a day. Do you think I could add echinacea to this tea?

    Hey Kelly! That’s my comment up above about just having found out I was pregnant. Well, my baby is almost 2 now and we’re starting to think about having another soon so I looked up this recipe again. Just wanted to let you know that I drank this all throughout pregnancy and had a wonderful pregnancy and birth experience. I really do think these herbs helped, especially the red raspberry leaf tea. The only thing I would suggest is removing the alfalfa because it has diuretic properties and as pregnant ladies, we have to pee enough as it is! Ha πŸ™‚ I ended up removing it from the mix because I was just having to go nonstop. But just my experience! Again, thank you so much for sharing this! I will definitely use it next pregnancy!

    Oh and I made mine as pitchers of iced tea with lemon, mint, and honey mixed it. I used a nut milk bag as a big tea bag and let it steep until room temp. Then I added the lemon, mint, and honey before it went in the fridge. This made it more accessible and palatable to me and so I had no problem drinking a ton of it in the third trimester.

    • Kelly from Primally Inspired

      Katy! Thank you so much for leaving a comment with your tips – your lemon, mint and honey sound amazing! Herbs are so wonderful and it makes me happy to hear that you had a great first birth experience. Many blessings to you on your next birth!!! <3
