I drank plenty of RRL prior to getting pregnant, but it just hasn't settled well since becoming pregnant. I have both the Traditional Medicinals RRL bags and a 'loose leaf/whole herb' RRL from a local supplier.
What I have *loved* this pregnancy, is Rooibos Tea. And I'm now doing a blend of equal parts alfalfa, rooibos, and RRL - which I find to be incredibly nourishing. I feel so good after drinking a cup....really ought to drink it more!
While Rooibos and Alfalfa are not uterine toners, they are both loaded with vitamins & minerals. And the rooibos can help reduce stomach complaints, boost iron, and control both appetite and blood sugar levels. It is high in antioxidants, and has anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Rooibos is the traditional pregnancy tea in South Africa.
So sure, I'm not getting all the benefits of straight RRL, but my mix is working for me so I'm sticking with it. Maybe blending your RRL with other gentle plants like alfalfa &/or rooibos would help you too??
