When I gave birth to twins nine weeks early, the nurse in the NICU told me that the best thing I could do for them was to pump breast milk. The babies were less than 4 lbs. each and my milk could give them antibodies and nutrients that modern medicine cannot duplicate or match. Unfortunately, I found pumping exclusively was hard for me. Another mother recommended the folks over at Herb Lore who set me up with their Nursing Tea (Moringa Blend). I made iced tea out of it and drank a 16oz. bottle every 3 hours when I pumped. My milk supply shot up dramatically by the second day. The babies got only my breastmilk and by their due date, they had both tripled their birth weight! The doctors had some medications that they could prescribe to increase my milk supply, but the herbs were completely natural and safe for the babies with no side effects for any of us. And they worked so well! These herbs were lifesavers for us, literally. And as an added bonus, the doctor said the Raspberry Leaf in the tea was very good for my uterus after the c-section. I recovered in record time! K.M.
