The Best Tea for Pregnancy - Ease Pregnancy Symptoms With These Powerful Herbs

If you’re looking for a natural way to help combat pesky pregnancy symptoms, look no further than herbal tea. Both nutritious and delicious, certain herbs found in natural tea blends can help alleviate uncomfortable symptoms during pregnancy. 

But what’s so great about these herbs and how exactly do they help? Here’s what you need to know about the best tea for pregnancy. 

 

Is tea safe to drink during pregnancy?

The good news is that the majority of teas out there are safe to drink during pregnancy so long as they don’t put you over your recommended daily caffeine intake. As many natural herbs contain therapeutic properties to help combat common pregnancy symptoms, drinking tea isn’t just safe, it’s often encouraged for a more relaxed and comfortable pregnancy journey. 

But while the majority of tea is safe to drink during pregnancy, it is important to note that raspberry leaf tea should only be consumed once you’ve hit your third trimester given its ability to promote uterine contractions. It’s always recommended to speak to your doctor if you have any concerns about safe teas for pregnant women. 

 

Can tea help ease pregnancy symptoms?

Nausea, inflammation, bloating, battered immune systems - pregnancy is the gift that keeps on giving! And while you may be more conscious than ever of what you put into your body, it doesn’t mean that you have to live with these grating symptoms for the duration of your pregnancy. 

Natural herbal teas have countless benefits when it comes to making you feel more like yourself while growing your little one. While they may not get rid of symptoms entirely, pregnancy tea can make the overall process a bit more enjoyable if you’re feeling bogged down by uncomfortable symptoms. 

And with so many powerful herbs out there, we know navigating which teas are right for you can feel a bit overwhelming. That’s why we’ve concocted hand-selected pregnancy tea blends specifically for expectant mothers, from the day you find out you're pregnant to your third trimester.
