There has been much in the news lately about the risks of antidepressant use during pregnancy, being linked to autism and birth defects.  Researchers in JAMA Pediatrics reported that "children of women who took anti-depressants during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy were 87% more likely to develop autism than kids born to women who didn't take the drugs."

Postpartum Emotions (and a Note about Postpartum Depression)

As I was writing my blog about herbs for increasing breastmilk production, I felt guided to address how normal, natural and common it is for women to feel very emotional and feel the need to cry after they've given birth, or at any time postpartum.  It became clear that it needed to be a blog post all of its own.

Yellow Dock Root


Yellow Dock Root is one of the best sources of naturally available iron. It concentrates iron from the earth and combines it with the vitamins and minerals needed for the best absorption in our bodies. According to Susun Weed, rises in the hematocrit (a measure of iron in our blood) of as much as a point a week are reported by women taking this iron tonic during pregnancy and after hemorrhage. And unlike prescription or synthetic forms of iron, Yellow Dock is not constipating. As a matter of fact, it's gentle stool softening properties gently help to relieve constipation. It is a wonderful liver detoxifier, blood cleanser, and is helpful in clearing chronic skin problems. 

Testimonial

Oh Pam, you are remarkable, and that spills over into your incredibly-created, life-changing products!  I’m not exaggerating. With the help of Fenugreek, I was able to breastfeed my son till he was 10 months. I would’ve been able to keep going, but I found out I was pregnant again and my supply ceased. The other products I love are the Tummy TinctureHealing Salve, and Itch Soother Tincture. These last three items my whole family has used and loved! The past year I bought the Healing Salve at least 6 times! This stuff is a must have for EVERY household. As the original detailed info stated ‘Typical results is that it will heal a diaper rash within hours overnight in severe cases’ Absolutely 100% true!!! I cannot rave enough about this product!  You can feel good that you’re putting something that’s healthy on your child and your other family members, their skin is not going to be absorbing anything unnatural or toxic. I’m going to buy this for my cousins that are having babies. Now, the Tummy Tincture was a must for my son and I while I was breastfeeding because we both became bloated while I was taking a larger quantity of the Fenugreek. This helped immensely!  Pam, you have done a phenomenal job at meticulously detailing every product and which products work in tandem with one another.  I forgot to mention that I also purchased and love the Garlic Ear Oil. It’s given my aching ears relieve many many times. Even when the doctor says she doesn’t see anything out of ordinary within my ears (even though I feel an earache coming on), I turn to this product for help. I only have to use it overnight to feel relief.  I think that’s everything about the products. Now about you Pam. I have reached out to you twice about problems. You graciously and extensively answered me in depth and with compassion. The entire Herb Lore community is so positive and loving because of you and your products. Thank you so much for making healthy organic natural remedies that really do work, and improve mine and my family and friends lives. I wish you many blessings.  Deep gratitude, TLC
