Teas For Postpartum

While every new mama knows how important it is to eat balanced meals, get enough sleep and indulge in acts of self-care, very few get the time to make this happen. With household responsibilities, a healing body and a precious newborn that needs lots of love, care and attention, nourishing your mind and body can feel like an impossible task in the weeks and months following childbirth. The good news is that there are ways to get you back to feeling like yourself, such as with teas for postpartum. 

Helping you heal from the inside out, teas for postpartum can help stimulate milk production, strengthen your immune system, improve your skin and hair health and help manage shifts in mood. And while cosying up with a cup of herbal tea on the sofa is an act of self-care in and of itself, there are far more benefits than meets the eye when it comes to these healing herbs. 


Postpartum health

After we give birth, we experience significant hormonal fluctuations as our estrogen and progesterone levels dramatically decrease. This hormonal rollercoaster contributes to what’s known as the “baby blues”, all while our bodies are trying to heal while tending to a newborn baby. It ain’t easy. 

And if a serious lack of sleep, significant hormonal shifts and a broken body trying to heal aren’t enough, the fourth trimester also brings along compromised immune systems, hair loss, acne and mood swings. Not to mention the cracked nipples and pressure to keep up your milk supply if you’re nursing. It’s a period filled with every emotion in the book, and we’re on a mission to help mums feel like themselves again with natural herbal tea during this transformative stage of life. 

Helping nourish your body and mind, herbal teas are packed with feel-good ingredients that help you take on the highs and lows of postpartum. Here are just some of our favourite herbs included in our postpartum teas: 

  • Nettle: Packed with iron, nettle has been used for generations to help stimulate milk production to help mothers nurse newborn babies. Safe to drink directly after birth, postpartum tea blends with nettle can help increase your milk supply.
  • Echinacea: Highly revered by herbalists, natural tea blends with echinacea are recommended postpartum to help boost the immune system while fighting off infections. Helping your body heal after childbirth, this powerful herb will keep you feeling healthy and well despite the newfound sleep interruptions. 
  • Rosemary: Containing carnosic acid, rosemary helps stimulate blood circulation to your hair follicles, helping you combat postpartum hair loss. This can help strengthen hair while reducing breakage in the weeks and months following childbirth. 
  • Fennel: Another powerhouse when it comes to stimulating milk production, natural tea blends containing fennel can help fuel your breastfeeding journey while soothing your digestive system at the same time. 
  • Roses: Revered for its anti-inflammatory powers, roses can help relieve pain caused by bloating while reducing anxiety and mood swings. Another great candidate for increasing milk production, rose tea is packed with nourishing benefits for new mamas.
