This tea is helpful in supporting and promoting breastmilk production. It is high in vitamin and mineral content, which is very healthful for both mother and baby, and has no side effects. The Fennel Seed not only helps increase breastmilk production, but it also helps alleviate gas, colic, and indigestion. The Goats Rue is also one of the best herbs for increasing breastmilk production, and the Chamomile is wonderfully calming and up-lifting. The herbs are all organic or wildcrafted, contain no caffeine, preservatives or additives, and are of the freshest and highest quality possible. The tea comes in a tamper-evident, resealable pouch, which is air-tight and moisture-proof to keep your tea in the freshest condition possible!

This combination contains the following herbs: Fennel Seed – increases breastmilk production while helping to alleviate gas in both mother and baby. Helps to soothe indigestion and heartburn, aids in bowel movements and prevents any associated cramping or griping. Helps soothe colic in babies (mom ingests the tea and passes it to the baby via breastmilk).
Goats Rue – one of the best herbs for increasing breastmilk production. One of my references states that Goats Rue can increase production by 50%! Red Raspberry Leaf - tones uterus and muscles of the pelvic region. Highly nutritive. Prevents miscarriage and hemorrhage, eases morning sickness, and reduces pain during labor and after birth. Does not strengthen contractions, but allows contracting uterus to work more effectively, making birth easier and faster. Assists in the production of plentiful breast milk. Helps uterus to recover more quickly after birth.
Nettle Leaf - contains nearly every vitamin and mineral necessary for human growth and health. Abundant in vitamins A, C, D, and K, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and sulfur. Nettle contains more chlorophyll than any other herb, which is important to clean, purify and oxygenate the blood. It guards against anemia, helps gently relieve constipation, and is extremely nutritious. Eases leg cramps and other muscle spasms and pain due to the high calcium content.
(Nettle and Raspberry Leaf contain calcium in its most absorbable form. Spinach, chocolate, rhubarb and brewers yeast will interfere with the absorption of calcium, and calcium supplements made of bone meal and oyster shell should be avoided as they have are not as easily absorbed in the body and they have been shown to contain high levels of lead, mercury, cadmium and other toxic metals.) Nettle prevents hemorrhage due to its high Vitamin K content, and its astringency and nourishing action helps to reduce

hemorrhoids by tightening and strengthening blood vessels. It also will increase the richness and amount of breast milk.
Alfalfa - this herb contains 8 essential amino acids for good digestion and helps nausea. Like Nettle, it contains almost every vitamin and mineral known to man. It is extremely high in chlorophyll which helps with blood oxygenation and purification, and helps to correct constipation. Very high in Vitamin K. Highly nutritious and helps to increase the richness and amount of breastmilk.
Chamomile - relaxing, soothing and calming to the entire system. Helps with digestion and nausea, and is also high in calcium. The essential oil of Chamomile is anti-inflammatory in nature and is wonderful in healing swellings, achy joints and other inflammations. Rosemary Gladstar states This delicate, gentle flower is a must for pregnant (and nursing) women. Its sunny disposition is helpful for lifting the spirits and its calming relaxing attributes are very soothing to the soul.
In the coming months we will be phasing out some of our lines and increasing this line of herbs as Pam is extremely committing to home-birthing families/midwives.
A Little About Pam Caldwell, founder of Herb Lore
Pam Caldwell grew up in a traditional allopathic medical environment. Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications were dispensed freely in their household, as was done in many households during that time. Pam noticed that many of these medications created other problems for her or made her actually feel worse! Pam also grew up with an intense love for and connection with the plant kingdom. As her father was a horticulturist and her mother a nurse, this set the perfect stage for Pam to explore and use plants as a healing modality. Not only did Pam have a strong connection with plants and herbs, but she knew at age 11 that her lifes work would somehow include helping women birth their babies.
Many years passed. As a young adult, Pam was given a ticket to travel to Hawaii, and she decided to escape the corporate jungle and to move there rather than just to visit. While living in Hawaii, she met amazing people who would show her the native plants and how they could be used for healing. This awakened a long held passion and knowledge held deep within Pams soul. From then on, Pam would learn all she could about this ancient art and how she could use it in her own life and for the good of those who would come to her for healing.
During this time, Pam was asked to attend her first birth. Profoundly moved by the experience, Pam was compelled to learn more about the pregnancy, birth, postpartum and lactation process and how to make it the powerful, sacred experience she knew this event to be. Shortly after Pam completed formal herbal schooling, she began her midwifery training. A short time into this process, Pam began the most incredible learning experience of her life - she became pregnant herself!
As Pam progressed through her pregnancy, she was continually challenged in finding good quality herbal products for herself and her growing baby, so she started making a few products for herself. These products began to become very popular with other pregnant women and with midwives, doulas and lactation consultants in the area. As Pam went through labor, birth, postpartum and began breastfeeding, and as she began to learn the real and intimate needs of women traveling this sacred journey first-hand, her herbal product line and her expertise
grew. Many years later, Pam has become an expert in these areas and has helped thousands of women to overcome challenges ranging from fertility issues, to pregnancy, birth, postpartum and lactation issues. Pam now has hospitals, pediatricians and other health professionals referring their patients to Pam for her expertise and knowledge, as well as for the high-quality, organic herbal products that her company, Herb Lore, has to offer.
Pams passion is to empower birthing families and to help make this magical time of life the sacred event that is meant to be. She does this by alleviating fear through education and helping women solve problems with information and herbal products (if needed), so that they can enjoy and savor this special time to the absolute fullest! She knows and trusts the bodys natural ability to birth and to heal itself, and empowers her clients to embrace this awareness too. Pam has thousands of clients all over the United States and is beginning to become internationally known as well. She is the author of the forthcoming book Herbs and Wisdom for Your Sacred Birthing Journey.
Pam is a member of the American Herb Association and United Plant Savers and their Botanical Sanctuary Network, an organization dedicated to saving and re-establishing endangered herb species. Pam is also a member of Birthing and Early Parenting Educators (BEPE), a group of experienced professionals started by Dr. David Chamberlain, author of The Mind of Your Newborn Baby. This group of professionals share the belief that creating a healthy society starts with healthy, happy families. They promote the fact that babies are aware, sensitive, open and communicative from the very beginning, even while still in the womb and prior to conception. They provide education for birthing families about holistic pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding, and conscious parenting to give their babies the most healthy and advantageous start possible - all gifts that will last their child a lifetime. For more information, please visit BEPE at www.bepe.info.
