$8.50 each

This herbal blend is a wonderful tea to sip in the lead up to labour and during labour. If you are having days of pre-labour and wondering when the real thing is going to kick in, this tea will be a comforting, nurturing drink during your days of patience. During labour, it supports effective contractions and provides warm hydration. With a spoonful of Manuka honey it will help keep your energy up. It contains herbs known to nourish and tone the uterus, support the hormonal system and provide calming and relaxation. It contains 'birthing aid' herbs known for stimulating the uterus. It is based on herbalist Nan Koehler's birthing tea recipe, which I drank myself for all 4 of my births.

The Birthing Bliss tea contains:

Basil (Ocimum basilicum) - rich in GLAs which support the production of prostaglandins; soothes spasms

Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris) - a hormone balancing herb with calming effects

Lavender (Lavandula officinalis) - calms and centres; provides pain relief

(Leonurus cardiaca)- a 'birthing aid' herb - a uterine stimulant which supports relaxation, effective contractions and cervical dilation

Nettle (Urticia dioica) - rich in nutrients, including iron, zinc, magnesium and Vitamin K. It eally is the ultimate woman's herb.

(Myristica fragrans) - a calming herb which supports relaxation

Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) works synergistically with Red Raspberry Leaf and Nettle, supporting the absoprtion of nutrients. A positive stimulant for the mind.

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)- rich in many nutrients; supports the optimal release of hormones

Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) - rich in many nutrients; tones and nourishes the uterine muscles

To get the full therapeutic benefit of herbal teas, avoid metal implements which may kill off fragile nutrients. Blissful Herbs stocks bamboo strainers and spoons; and muslin tea-bags for our customers. You can brew the whole amount of tea in early labour, and sip on this hot, warm or cold during labour. If you prefer your tea hot, use a smaller amount and make a fresh pot each time. Lemon and honey can be added for taste. Manuka honey is ideal to have with the Birthing Bliss tea as it will give the hard working mama a boost of energy.

Birthworker packs of this tea are available. The pack contains 6 x 30g Birthing Bliss packets, individually packaged for your clients, with info sheets included, for $25.00 plus postage of $8.00 up to 500g gross, Australia-wide

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I use up my left-over Birthing Bliss Tea after the baby is here?

A: Yes - all these herbs are safe and suitable to use post-natally too - however - Peppermint and Basil have been known to reduce milk supply in susceptible women - so if you have any concerns that your milk supply is less than robust, it might be better to pay it forward and gift your Birthing Bliss Tea on to a soon-to-birth mama.


  1. I am positive the Birthing Bliss tea contributed to my easy labour!!!
    By on November 4, 2020

    I was gifted these herbs by my doula when I was pregnant with my third bub. My first two births were horrible and stressful and extremely painful. I took a different approach with the third hence the doula and the herbs etc.
    My labour was coming and going for a few days and on the third day my doula told me to drink 2 liters of this Birthing Bliss tea. I had it going in a pot on the stove almost all day and just kept going back for more. I cooled it with ice cubes as it was a 40 degree day. I started the tea at midday and finished the 2 liters by 6. Baby was born at home before we could get to the hospital and hubby stepped in as midwife and “delivered” bubs. It was the most amazing, relaxing and stress-free birth. I felt strong, calm and in control and well-hydrated. I believe the herbs contributed to getting things to go smoothly and helping release all the right hormones. I loved it so much that I now order it as a gift for for every pregnant friend or family member and will be ordering this and more if I go for a fourth bub!

    I enjoyed this tea throughout labour and although I struggled with keeping liquids down, it kept me focused and my birth helpers enjoyed having something practical they could do for me (making tea!). A lovely home birth, after my first difficult hospital birth.

  3. kept me centered and strong

    I will always fondly remember drinking this tea between contractions as I laboured in the quiet of my home while the rest of the family slept. It was also very special to bring this into the hospital (third baby, very apprehensive having my first planned hospital birth, with the goal of a physiological birth (and got it!!). It helped me feel like I was in a more personal comforting home-like space. I had a long labor with patient hospital staff, and I believe this tea kept me feeling centered and strong.
