Even though I am pregnant, I love and crave herbal tea. Sadly, herbal teas like chamomile are supposed to be avoided for the most part during pregnancy because most brands use chemicals and the tea leaves can then carry diseases and harmful substances for unborn babies. When I was at the store, I noticed a line of herbal teas just for women who are expecting or nursing and I just had to try it! Earth Mama Angel Baby sent me their Organic Heartburn Tea and their Organic Milkmaid Tea.
Earth Mama Angel Baby 100% organic teas are USDA certified, zero toxin, and researched and promised to be safe and effective for expectant mommies. There are also tea varieties of Morning Wellness Tea, Peaceful Mama Tea, Third Trimester Tea, Monthly Comfort Tea, and No More Milk Tea.
The tea that I just tried, Organic Heartburn Tea, is meant for all stages or pregnancy as well as postpartum. Caffeine free, the Soothing Mellow Mint flavor is very calming and delicious. Ingredients include spearmint leaf, chamomile, lemon balm leaf, marshmallow and red raspberry leaf. The marshmallow root is a natural plant used for comforting the soreness of gastrointestinal irritations by coating the mouth, throat, belly and colon. I frequently get bad heartburn while pregnant and the Earth Mama Angel Baby Organic Heartburn Tea really did a lot to soothe the burn and it tasted wonderful! I really enjoy drinking this before bed, after a "big" dinner or during a calming bath.
The tea I did not try on for taste yet, Organic Milkmaid Tea, is meant for postpartum breastfeeding. Since I have not yet had my baby and this is NOT FOR USE DURING PREGNANCY, I decided not to increase my milk supply already but I will be very excited to try it in a few months once the baby is here as I plan to breastfeed. I did, however, get a whiff of the tea which helps me to picture what the tea will taste like. The Fragrant Fennel Herb smell was unique, somewhat savory, and delightful. This tea contains fenugreek seed, fennel seed, red raspberry leaf, stinging nettle leaf, milk thistle seed, orange peel, anise seed, caraway seed and alfalfa leaf. (Large amounts of this tea may lower blood sugar, so limit to when needed.) The Organic Milkmaid Tea will have a distinct licorice flavor as it contains both anise and fennel seed. Fennel helps with issues of the gastrointestinal system and to increase milk supply for nursing mothers (it is a "galacagogue" meaning it increases breast milk.) The fenugreek, milk thistle seed, anise seed and caraway seed also all help to increase your supply while the nettle and red raspberry leaf provide many needed vitamins and minerals that will help (along with your prenatal vitamins) to keep your breast milk as nutritious for Baby as possible. This tea is also caffeine free.
I am so happy to have found a calming, healthy, safe herbal tea to drink while pregnant as well as a tea that will help to increase my milk supply for my likely very-hungry baby boy due in November.
