Soothing Pregnancy Tea Recipe

Today I am bringing you a very special Soothing Pregnancy Tea Recipe from a very special blogger. Emilie is the brains behind The Toups Address. She blogs about all things healthy, natural, *real*, and from scratch…just what we like here at Scratch Mommy, right!?

Her blog tagline is…

Learn.grow.nourish.

…a mission that I know many of us take very seriously. Emilie has quite the success story to share about this special herbal tea blend recipe. Talk about two wildly different deliveries of babies…holy moly!

Her story and lovely (and delish!) recipe is below. Please, read along and then be sure to stop by and visit Emilie. I have included her social media links at the end of this post for you.


Ok, mammas this is one for the books. (That means you need to save this one!)

I mean you had me at soothing……and it can help during labor. Now I am sold!

During my first pregnancy, I kind of winged it. You know, I ate healthy here and there and made sure not to consume too much caffeine. I tried the best I could to remember those horse pills called prenatals and the rest; well I left that up to nature.

But you know what that got me……a 15hr labor that ended up with forceps, a thin un-nourished placenta and a hemorrhage. That was not fun. I was totally unprepared.

The second go-round was a totally different experience. I was determined. I was tackling this pregnancy head on. I researched, read, and then researched some more.

Wanna know one of the biggest tools?

Yep! Cute, tasty, dainty tea.

But boy, does it pack a punch on your health!

Soothing Pregnancy Tea

Ingredients:

Make It:


With the approval of my midwife I drank this tea at least 2-3x a week in the 1st and 2nd trimester and every single day in the 3rd.

And the success? I labored for 4 hours and pushed my healthy 9.5lb baby boy out on the third push. That was enough evidence for me. This will definitely be in my routine when baby No.3 comes around one day.
