Birth Boost Tincture

$7.50 each

The Birth Boost Tincture is a blend of herbal extracts to boost contractions and support a long or challenging labour.

It contains:

Schisandra chinensis: This strengthening herb has calming nervine, adaptogenic and oxytocic actions. Schisandra has been used to enhance physical and mental endurance and performance. It has been used traditionally to to enhance labour contractions during birth, particularly during a long, tiring or protracted labour.

According to one text, “A liquid extract of Schisandra successfully induced labour in 72 out of 80 women with prolonged labour with an administered dose of 20 to 25 drops per hour for 3 hours of a 1:3 extract for 3 consecutive days” (Vanderlaan 2008, p. 305)
Bone (2003, p 407) affirms the same, also noting: “The Schisandra-treated group experienced fewer birth complications than the untreated women”. Both references seem to be quoting a 1968 study by Gaistruk & Taranovski.

Vervain (Verbena officinalis): this is a herb with calming nervine actions, helpful for soothing anxiety. Traditionally, it has been used to invigorate uterine contractions, given during labour to “make childbirth easier”.

Black Cohosh (Actea or Cimicifuga racemosa): a uterine tonic and spasmolytic herb, indicated to “prepare for labour”. Traditionally used with Blue Cohosh to strengthen labour contractions and support labour progress.

Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides): an emmenaogue herb which tones the uterus, with oxytocic actions, indicated to “assist with labour”.

How to use:

Administer 5 mls (or 2 dropperfuls) in a little water or juice. Repeat dose in half an hour, then at 4 hourly intervals, if needed.
Keep out of reach of children. Store below 30 degrees Celsius, away from direct sunlight.
