Thanks so much for all the support, guys!
To help strengthen my placenta my midwife recommended taking in addition to my prenatal vitamin (a whole food vitamin):
400-600 iu of Vitamin E
Bioflavonoids w/vitamin c added
Also, I had kidney issues (a stone and kinked ureter, the kinked ureter was THE worst pain I have ever gone through) and gall stones with my last pregnancy which was just bizarre cause I have never had a problem with either before. At my first visit with her for this baby she said there was protein in my urine, which shows strained kidneys. To help with that she told me to take:
1 TBSP mineral goat whey powder daily
and rotate between taking dandelion root and nettle throughout the pregnancy.
Also Omega oils
I admit that sometimes I feel overwhelmed with her recommendations. I am new to the whole herb thing. I am going to take them and see what I think.
