Postpartum Tincture:

Funugreek, Alfalfa, Nettle, Raspberry leaf, Motherwort, Yellow Dock and Dandelion root.

The first three months after giving birth is sometimes referred to as the “fourth trimester”. Many changes are happening during that time. Mom is recovering from an earth shattering experience and baby needs everything. The mother has given so much of her being and it can leave her body feeling very depleted, especially if she’s breastfeeding. This period in a woman’s life is often overlooked. All the attention goes to the baby and it can leave mom feeling left out in the cold to recover quickly and by herself.

She is fed chicken and warm broth to recover, while many woman hold the newborn for hours on end. That just doesn’t fit into some women’s schedule.
