Placenta Release Tincture

$8.50 each

The Placenta Release Tincture is a blend of liquid herbal extracts traditionally used to support the third stage of labour and the expulsion of the placenta.

It contains:

Angelica archangelica – Susun Weed write in her book, Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year that this herb is a powerful emmenagogue and uterine stimulant. It has been used traditionally to release the placenta. It is understood to tone the uterus while relaxing the cervix.

Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) – this astringent herb is considered a “parturifacient” herb that is invaluable before, during and after childbirth, in nourishing the uterus and supporting uterine tone. It is useful to prevent and treat post-partum haemorrhage.

Motherwort (Leonurus cardiac) – an emmenagogue and spasmolytic herb which promotes uterine tone and effective contractions. It also, as a nervine, relieves anxiety, addressing the emotional component of a safely progressing third stage. It is a soothing, calming herb that helps prevent excessive blood loss.

How To Use:

The minimum dose is 5 ml. Add to a little water or juice and drink.

All usual safe third stage practices, to support optimal release of natural birth hormones, should be observed, such as warmth, privacy, peace and quiet, no distractions, and keeping mother and baby skin-to-skin.

We would normally wait 30-60 minutes for the placenta to detach on its own.

After this time, if midwife or mother have any concerns, this tincture is an appropriate measure.

Give a 5 ml dose. Wait 5 – 10 minutes, observe for cord lengthening, then administer another 5 ml dose if warranted.

    This tincture is brilliant in my birth kit. I have used it on a few occasions and it has really helped with release of the placenta. I have used it with women who have had previous lengthy third stages. So great.

  2. Great tincture to have!

    Perfect for giving your body a little boost to help with birthing the placenta.
