Herbal Products for a Healthy Pregnancy
Updated on May 3, 2021

Whether you are a first-time mama or seasoned parent, each pregnancy is unique. It’s natural for expecting moms to seek out the best herbal teas for their pregnancy, giving them that extra daily support and well-deserved moment of calm and rest.

Herbalism has long held healthy rituals for the womb, and drinking a soothing, nourishing cup of herbal tea is an easy way to receive the benefits of plants. Whether it’s using herbs to tone and prepare the womb for childbirth, sipping on a nutritive tonic, or soothing the occasional bout of nausea, irritability, or constipation – herbs can support you.*

The appropriate use of herbs during pregnancy requires specialized knowledge and care. However, finding the right ones to nourish and tonify shouldn’t be confusing and overwhelming. Rest assured, plants have been used during pregnancy and breastfeeding for thousands of years. Our herbalists have put together a list of teas that are caffeine-free, supportive and soothing to the most common discomforts of pregnancy.*

Herbal Products for Maternity Support

Organic Pregnancy® tea

A nourishing blend of some of the best herbs for nutritive support and to prepare for labor and delivery, this tea was made for expectant moms. Predominant herbs featured in this formula include raspberry leaf and nettle leaf. Best known for its role in toning the womb, raspberry leaf prepares the uterus for giving birth. Filled with minerals, nettle is a nutritive tonic for daily support. Additionally, spearmint and fennel make it mildly sweet and supportive to the digestive system. This balanced blend of gentle herbs is best sipped daily as part of your prenatal routine.*

 

Organic Nettle tea

Considered one of the very best nutritive tonics, nettle is one of nature’s best wild herbs. Its earthy green taste and nutritive profile make it a wonderful tea to sip on throughout the day or to add into smoothies or soups for a little something extra. As a gentle tonic herb, nettle offers wellness support for the length of your pregnancy.

 

Organic Chamomile tea

One of the most beautiful phases of life, pregnancy can also stir up emotionally turbulent days and a bit of anxiety as you await the arrival of your little one. One of the most trusted plants in herbalism today, chamomile has been traditionally used to support the nervous system, offering a sense of calm and relaxation to your day. Conveniently, chamomile provides dual support for healthy digestion.* You can rest assured knowing that for our teas, we select medicinal-grade chamomile to achieve the desired effect and use only the essential oil-rich flowering tops, preserving its classic apple-like fragrance and naturally sweet flavor. You’ll want to keep this on hand throughout your pregnancy and beyond. Chamomile also makes an excellent cold compress for those warm maternity surges and swollen feet.

 

Organic Ginger tea

Ginger’s warm and soothing qualities make it one of the world’s most well-known medicinal plants. Celebrated not only for its spicy flavor, a comforting mug of ginger tea can also provide support during those unexpected bouts of nausea and digestive discomfort. Ginger can also be found in our Morning Ease Lemon Ginger Lozenges, serving as welcome relief for expectant mothers in easing normal morning sickness, wherever and whenever it may strike.*

 

Organic Smooth Move® tea

Our best tea for occasional constipation, this tea features senna leaf, an herb traditionally used to stimulate bowel movements. Sweet and slightly bitter, with spiced orange notes, this tea is pleasant and beneficial to support occasional constipation experienced as your body changes and grows throughout pregnancy. Sip this organic laxative tea before bedtime and sleep easy knowing it’ll be smooth sailing by morning. Smooth Move® Peppermint offers the same support with a minty twist and is perfect for those who experience bloating with their constipation. Smooth Move® Chamomile is pleasantly floral and may provide soothing relief for those also experiencing digestive cramping.* You can also find it in convenient capsule form. While clinically tested and proven generally safe for pregnancy-related constipation, keep in mind this product is indicated for occasional use and should be paused during breastfeeding. Do not use if you’re experiencing chronic constipation or have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain, because senna may worsen these conditions. In those cases, we recommend checking in with your healthcare practitioner.

 

As each pregnancy and body is different, we advise you to thoroughly read the instructions on each tea box to find out if it’s right for you. If questions arise, we recommend consulting your health practitioner.
