13 Oct , 2021

Between morning sickness, backaches, and all the body changes it brings, pregnancy is positively one wild ride. Did you know that you can ease many of the troublesome symptoms of pregnancy with a handful of nature’s greatest herbs? 

Keep these five favorites in your cabinet and use them everyday to help get through the rough patches and naturally support your pregnancy: 


Red Raspberry Leaf 

Red Raspberry Leaf

The safest herb to use during your pregnancy, red raspberry leaf helps to prevent nausea.

Red raspberry leaf has a mellow earthy taste that balances nicely with a little stevia and other sweeter herbs like hibiscus and rosehips. The star of the show in three of our favorite blends, you can find plentiful amounts of red raspberry leaf in our Grounded, Ripe & Ready, and Peaceful Pregnancy teas. 


Stinging Nettle 

While its name sounds like something you wouldn’t want to touch with a 10-foot
pole, stinging nettle is a nourishing herb that has been used for its many benefits

Stinging Nettle

What makes this plant even more impressive is that it also contains plentiful amounts of vitamins A, C, and D, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, and iron. Many women like to drink both red raspberry leaf tea and nettle tea consistently throughout their pregnancy, while switching to just nettle tea every day during the last trimester to raise levels of vitamin K in their blood just before labor. 

Similar to red raspberry leaf, nettles have a rich earthy taste that pairs well with citrus, mint, or a natural sweetener. Nettles are another one of the powerhouse herbs that you can enjoy in our Grounded and Peaceful Pregnancy teas. 


Ginger 

This spicy aromatic root does so much more than make a great stir-fry. Known for gingerits digestive support, ginger has been shown to be safe and effective in treating morning sickness, that pesky queasy feeling many women experience in early pregnancy.  

There are so many ways you can consume ginger, from capsules to candies, crystallized ginger, all-natural ginger ale, and of course, (our personal favorite) tea! Ginger is one of the six powerhouse herbs that help fight queasiness in our deliciously refreshing Inner Peace Organic Tea.


Chamomile

Perhaps one of the most calming and comforting herbs out there, chamomile is a flowering herb you can use to help relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and even get better sleep. Chamomile tea has a pleasant floral taste and is one of our favorite calming herbs in our Easy Naps & Calm Nights Organic Tea. 


Elderberry 

Unfortunately, growing a tiny human doesn’t get you out of catching a cold (even though we wish it could!). If your pregnancy happens to be during fall or winter, you may be even more susceptible to getting sick since your immune system is working double duty. This is where elderberry comes to the rescue!elderberry

Elderberry is an incredible example of food that can be used as medicine. This powerful herb has been used for generations to help shorten the duration of cold and flu symptoms, and it’s become quite popular in recent years.

Elderberry can be enjoyed as a delicious tea which happens to have a beautiful, vibrant purple color. You can also consume elderberry as a syrup, or take it in a capsule. Elderberry is the superstar here in our Family Immunity Tea, and you can even make your own elderberry syrup at home with our Elderberry Syrup Making Kit. 


Most Importantly, Enjoy Your Pregnancy!

Between nausea, aches, pains, and a growing belly, pregnancy can be undoubtedly unpleasant at times. However, it truly is an incredible experience that not everyone gets. You are growing a tiny human inside of you! Your body is accomplishing the amazing task of creating life. With the comfort and assistance of these super herbs, consistent exercise, and proper nutrition, you can do your best to make your pregnancy as easy and enjoyable as possible.
