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....)

Happy Day Tincture - a natural solution for depression

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."

Testimonial

Hi Pam,  I'm so happy to have found your products, the Nursing Tincture (Moringa Blend) in particular works really well. I was afraid that going back to work would make my milk supply drop which is one of the main reasons I bought it. It's actually making me over-produce now and has allowed me to save up a really nice stash in my freezer for my son. I'm trying to decrease my supply now for my morning pump as I have a lot of milk (sometimes 30oz in one morning).  Do you have any suggestions on how I can safely reduce my supply without totally diminishing it?  Thank you, A.S.   (Yes, Sage Tea or Tincture helps to gently decrease milk supply, or simply cut back or stop using the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend if your supply is adequate.  You may not have need of it any more!)
