Hello! I'm a first time mother-to-be living in Argentina about to have a baby boy. I'm almost 8 months along and I had a strange question. My mom sent me 'Traditional Medicinals Organic Pregnancy Tea' which is great and has great all organic ingredients to get ready for birth, but I noticed it contained Spearmint.
Bitter Fennel Fruit
Lemon Verbena Leaf
I know spearmint is used to decrease milk supply in breastfeeding women. I've been avoiding anything minty since then so as to have plenty of milk for when the baby is born. I even have to make my own toothpaste!
I thought maybe the other ingredients might counteract the affects of spearmint, or maybe spearmint won't affect my milk supply during pregnancy. I'm stumped! Can anyone help me out?
