Besides Red Raspberry Leaf and Nettle.  (sorry, I know RRL is probably a popular answer).  I am trying to check out at Mountain Rose Herbs and there's that $10.00 minumum.  I've already got RRL, nettles and hibiscus...but what else should I add to my cart in order to make a wonderful herbal pregnancy tea???


I happen to be 25wks along, I have VERY, very low blood pressure, no swelling at all, tend to have large babies, a weak pelvic floor, probably low in iron and I bled more than I expected last time (despite having been drinking RRL/nettle tea throughout last half of pregnancy).  I don't know if any of those tidbits matter or would influence your opinion about the perfect herb, but I figured I'd just add it in anyway.

I may add a bit of spearmint for flavor and maybe get some comfery (not to drink) to make some lovely postpartum frozen pads. I've also heard of women taking oat straw.  

Troll? Here's me...

Id probably go with alfalfa as well given your belief you might be anemic and a potential propensity for heavy bleeding



for me its dandelion for swelling...I swell like crazy during pregnancy
