Herbs for pregnant and nursing moms is not your regular herbalism!

Many herbalists have extensive knowledge about using herbs, but not many are specifically trained in using herbs with pregnant, trying-to-conceive or breastfeeding mothers.  This is a whole other realm of herbalism with critical considerations and consequences for pregnant and nursing mothers and their babies.  Our herbalist and company founder, Pam Caldwell, is one of the few herbalists who specialize in this area, with over 20 years of experience.  She is knowledgeable about what works and what herbs to use for various problems, and especially what is safe and appropriate for pregnant moms, trying-to-conceive moms, and breastfeeding moms and their babies.  What might be safe for a regular person may be contraindicated (or even dangerous) for a pregnant or breastfeeding woman or her baby.  The importance of using products made by an expert or listening to advice from an expert when pregnant or breastfeeding cannot be understated.   (Click the title above to read more about this important topic....)

You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk!  These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production.  So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!

Is it worth even TRYING to breastfeed your second baby?

Best Herbs to Increase Breastmilk Production

 

Testimonial

First without you and your amazing products I’m not sure I would’ve survived the deep deep dark postpartum depression I experienced with my beautiful fifth baby boy in this past year. The stresses of life had so negatively impacted my breastfeeding and nursing so much that for the first time ever my normally over-productive milk supply was drying up. Your tinctures, teas and supportive words were so helpful. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this nugget with your greater community. So valuable. (She's talking about a video on tapping for increasing breastmilk production found HERE on YouTube.)   My husband and I have been studying the body, mind, wellness and really quantum healing and physics for many years. We’ve learned some other really amazing healing techniques. These, along with your guidance and products saved me from a place no new mama first of fifth time around should ever have to rest in alone.  J.A.
