I wanted to let you know that I have been taking your Iron Tonic since August 1st: one full dropper 3 times each day. My iron level at my appointment with my midwife on July 19th was 8.5 and this was a concern for her. My iron level at my appointment yesterday, August 14th, was 10.0. THANK YOU for helping me get that iron level up naturally!! You have no idea how relieved I felt when she read her machine! She told me to keep doing what I'm doing and I'll keep feeling better and better and I will definitely be continuing with it :) A.C.
Herb Lore’s Placenta Release Tincture is used to help expel the placenta after baby’s birth.
Not for use in pregnancy until the birth.
The Placenta Release Tincture contains organic:
- Angelica (Archangelica)
- Red Raspberry Leaf
- Blue Cohosh
- Shepherd’s Purse
Angelica is a powerful emmenagogue and uterine stimulant that is typically quite successful in releasing even a fully-adhered placenta. Do not confuse Archangelica with Angelica Sinensis (Dong Quai). Dong Quai can exacerbate bleeding. The Angelica Archangelica is a much better choice for third stage use. Red Raspberry Leaf helps to facilitate placenta delivery and helps keep the uterus working strongly and smoothly. Blue Cohosh is an oxytocic herb, helping the uterus to contract and clamp down, while the Yarrow is a powerful styptic herb (helps to stop bleeding). Shepherd’s Purse not only helps stop bleeding but it helps promote uterine contractions as well. These uterine contractions will help detach the placenta from the uterine wall and clamp off the exposed blood vessels.
Suggestions for use:
Give 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) of the tincture to help detach and expel the placenta. Continue to give 1-2 droppersful every 5-15 minutes until the placenta is delivered.
This product is a favorite of Robin Lim, midwife and director of Bumi Sehat Birth Center in Bali, Indonesia and CNN's Person of the Year 2013.
