Herbs For Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is a time for nurturing the body, mind, and soul.  Take care of yourself!  Nutritive herbs including those listed here have been recommended by experienced herbalists and have been used safely by pregnant women for centuries:


  • Red Raspberry leaf is the classic pregnancy herb; it tones and nourishes the uterine muscle, contains easily absorbed iron, reduces bleeding after birth, speeds recovery and boosts milk supply.


  • Ginger root is a favorite for relieving nausea and morning sickness; it is a safe remedy for colds, sore throats, and congestion.


  • Nettle is rich in calcium, iron, vitamins and minerals.  It reduces bleeding during birth, speeds recovery, and stimulates milk.


  • Fennel, anise, and dill can ease heartburn.


  • Dandelion is a good source of vitamin A, calcium and iron.  It supports the liver, stimulates digestion, is a mild diuretic, but is high in potassium.


  • Scullcap and Oatstraw helps ease muscle cramps and promotes restful sleep.
