This tincture is very effective for relieving after birth pains and cramping, which are common causes of uterine for women having their second or subsequent babies. After a woman's first pregnancy, the uterus easily and (usually) painlessly contracts back down to regain its normal shape and size after the birth. For the second or subsequent births however, its more difficult for the uterus to do this work, and these contractions can cause uterine pain, and for some, be as strong as labor contractions might be. It seems to be more intense with each subsequent birth.
This tincture will help relax the uterus and calm after-pains, while still allowing the uterus to regain its normal shape and size. We have had mothers who had birthed their tenth child remark how incredibly well it worked for them.
Note: Although it is speculated that Blue Cohosh may be contraindicated for use by nursing mothers, this would be if it is used on a longer-term basis (6 weeks or more) and at full strength (100% Blue Cohosh in the tincture rather than having it in smaller portions mixed with other herbs in a combination product such as the After Pain Relief Tincture). As a precaution, we have used very little of this herb in the After Pain Relief Tincture, but enough to keep the uterus painlessly contracting down. This product has a 20+ year track record of success and client happiness and satisfaction! Read two of our more recent testimonials below.

TESTIMONIAL: I ordered some of the After Pain Relief Tincture and it was amazing! With it being my third birth, I noticed a lot less pain afterward when using the tincture than I did with my first two births. M.S.
- Hello, I am currently expecting my 11th baby. Ever since I had my 8th baby, I have lived in DREAD of after pains. After my 9th, the after pains were so bad that I actually went into shock several times and passed out more than once -- this was not due to blood loss, just shock and intensity. This was with taking ibuprofen. Labor and birth were nothing by comparison. I often wished that I could just do labor and birth twice instead of doing the after pains. I was terrified with my 10th because I had learned that after pains do literally get worse after each one -- they don't ever max out. I ordered the large bottle of your After Pain Relief Tincture thinking that would be plenty and hoping desperately that it might help. I cannot tell you how amazing it was! Every time an after pain started, I could feel the shaking and chalky whiteness of shock start, but as soon as I took the tincture, it made a huge difference. It was completely manageable. I started taking the tincture before nursing, and that was the BEST. I was horrified when I ran out after only the first day. I had another tincture from a different company that helped, but it did not hold a candle to yours. I ordered another bottle but didn't get it in time to help with the worst of it. So, with this baby, I am planning to order 3 or 4 4oz bottles right up front. I really cannot tell you what a God send this tincture is. I am terrified at the thought of not having it! I am a HUGE advocate of this product and I tell all of my homebirthing friends and mothers of large families about it. Thank you! M.B.S.
