Raspberry leaf (Rubus idaeus): Raspberry leaves provide a rich source of iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium. The magnesium content is especially helpful in strengthening the uterine muscles. Raspberry leaf also contains vitamins B1, B3 and E which are valuable in pregnancy.Taking raspberry leaf is believed to help strengthen uterine muscles and tone the pelvic floor in preparation for childbirth, as well as assist with breast milk supply. 

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): Has a calming effect and helps relieve irritability, insomnia and anxiety.

Nettle (Urtica dioica): The list of vitamins and minerals in this herb includes nearly every one known to be necessary for human health and growth. Vitamins A, C, D and K, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron and sulphur are particularly abundant in nettles. Traditionally used for stress reduction and energy, nettle has the added bonus of improving the absorption of iron within the bloodstream. Published in the journal “Zeitschrift Fur Phytotherapie” for German pharmacists, this study showed that patients who had been drinking nettle tea had more iron in their bloodstream compared to patients who were not given nettle.

Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria): Meadowsweet is used in the treatment of hyperacidity, gastritis and peptic ulceration. Its gentle astringency is useful in treating diarrhoea and heartburn. It soothes and protects the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and stomach lining whilst reducing acidity.

Enjoyable tea!

I really enjoyed the mix of herbs included, especially the nettles since they are like a multi-vitamin. Even though not pregnant, I still really enjoy this blend. Soothing and relaxing!
