    Default Pregnancy tea

    Anyone ever heard of it? Used it? If so what is your opinion of it. All I know is that it is an herbal tea that is supposed to be good for pregnant women. A friend I trust a lot gave me a box and I'm just looking for some other opinions or descriptions of what it actually is and is supposed to do?

    I've used pregnancy tea and/or red raspberry leaf tea throughout all of my pgs . It's benefits will depend on what herbs it contains.

    Mine is:
    Red Raspberry Leaf- tones the uterus
    Spearmint- flavor and tummy soother
    Nettle- helps prevent water retention/swelling
    Alfalfa- high in minerals including iron
    Oatstraw- high in calcium and calming (I drink it before bed because it's a bit too calming, lol)
    Rosehips- high in vit C which helps absorb iron
    Fennel- helps with digestion and gas
    Lemongrass- flavor

    Of course all the benefits are theoretical...I don't know if it helps or not but I enjoy the tea and if nothing else it helps me stay hydrated

    I sweeten mine with raw honey or stevia extract powder.
