Anyone have experience with cramp bark in early pregnancy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just found out I am 4 weeks pregnant after a recent miscarriage. I am having slight cramping which is probably normal but I am super paranoid after my last miscarriage!! Has anyone used cramp bark in early pregnancy to help with cramps? If so how much? Thanks!!

Aviva Romm’s Habitual Miscarriage Prevention Formula

It is suggested that this formula should be started 3 months prior to conception and continued until at least 2 weeks past the latest weeks’ gestation of previous miscarriage ( if the previous miscarriage occurred at 8 weeks, continue the formula until at least 10 weeks). You will need to work with an herbalist or naturopath so they can monitor your herbal program.

  • It is suggested to combine the following tinctures together (1 oz = 30ml)
    Vitex: 50ml
    Cramp Bark: 30ml
    Partridge Berry: 20ml

    Suggested usage:5ml twice a day

    Cramp Bark
    If there is uterine cramping without cervical dilation, cramp bark has been traditionally used to help stop uterine spasm and contractions. It has been used for hundreds of years as miscarriage prevention.

    Partridge Berry
    Is an excellent uterine tonic traditionally used to help strengthen a weak uterus. Also known as Mitchella repens, partridge berry is very safe to use in pregnancy where miscarriage is concerned. It has also been used for hundreds of years by the Native Americans to prepare women for childbirth.
