$6.50 each

This is a wonderfully nutritious tea especially for the last few weeks of pregnancy, to support your body as it prepares for childbirth. It provides essential nutrients for the production of birth hormones. This tea contains herbs used for centuries to nourish birthing women, and strengthen our bodies for labour and birth. Use from 36 weeks onwards to help ripen the cervix, promote the release of birthing hormones, and strengthen and tone the uterus.

The Birth Vibes tea contains:

Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus) – promotes blood flow to the pelvic area and and uterus.

Chamomile
(Matricaria recutita) – a calming herb, rich in bioflavonoids, relaxes muscles & eases labour pain when labour occurs.

Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) – called the ‘birthing aid’ herb, toning the body ready for labour and leading to strong, effective contractions with less pain once labour starts. The Latin name literally means "lion heart" and as well as being a tonic for the heart, the herb is believed to impart "lion-hearted" courage to the mother!

Nettle (Urticia dioica) – a richly nutritious herb that nourishes the female system, decreases pain during labour and helps prevent haemorrhage.

Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) – a 'partus preparator' and parturifacient herb; contains fragrine, an alkaloid, which nourishes and tones the uterus, yielding strong, effective contractions when the time of labour comes. Richly nutritious, an excellent tonic which also helps prevent haemorrhage. Due to the tannins, take away from mineral supplements.

Squaw Vine (Partridgeberry - Mitchella repens) - a uterine tonic, partus preparator and parturient herb, this herb is considered to have a "special affinity" for the uterus and has been used traditionally to support a safe, easy and effective labour and birth.

Vervain (Verbena officinalis) – has the reputation of making childbirth easier and yielding effective contractions. It also nourishes the nervous system and has a calming, centering effect. Vervain should also be taken away from mineral supplements.

How to use the tea:

Place 1 teaspoon (5g approximately) of herbs, per cup of tea you'd like to make, into a tea pot (an old jam jar works perfectly).

Pour on approximately 150 ml hot water, just off the boil, per cup of tea.

Cover and steep for 10 minutes.

Pour through a strainer into your chosen drinking receptacle.

You can add a twist of lemon or lime, or a dab of natural sweetener like honey or agauave, if you like.

Enjoy your tea hot, warm or over ice.

Drink 2-4 cups daily as you please.

  1. felt so nurtured
    By on May 2, 2018

    I really loved having the Birth Vibes tea leading up to having my third baby. I felt so nurtured sipping this every day in the last weeks as I tried to enjoy the "pregnant pause," waiting for my baby and body to be ready for birthing day.

  2. Delicious!

    I bought the Birth Vibes tea because I knew I'd need the nutrients and support from the herbs, but was unprepared for how delicious it is also. I'm really pleased, it's nurturing my mind and body at once :) Also, I love love love the little bamboo strainer and spoon, no floaters in this cuppa!

  3. I am almost 5 months PP and still crave this tea!

    I confidently recommend this amazing tea to help prep your mind and body for birth. I drank this amazing tea from 36 weeks (we welcomed bub at 41 weeks). It was packaged beautifully with it's little spoon and I found it really delicious! I truly believe it worked. Baby Mahli was born at home within 25 minutes of water breaking (first time mother).

  4. Lovely tasting tea
