Elderflower Tea for Pregnancy


Elderflower for Pregnancy

elderflower for pregnancy mama tea

Why is the herb elderflower

so good for pregnancy?

The herb elderflower has diuretic qualities and diuretics increase urine flow. The flowers help the kidney action by relieving fluid retention, getting rid of toxins, and clearing heat from the body by way of the urinary system.Therefore, it is a natural way for pregnant women to clear toxins from the system.

Elderflower is also very effective at relieving fluid retention, so this is a brilliant herb for pregnant women to take who are suffering from fluid retention.

It is also completely caffeine-free and 100% natural, so what’s not to like?

It’s the reason that we included it in Glowing Mama, along with rooibos, dandelion (also great at helping with fluid retention) and echinacea!

History of Elderflower

The herb elderflower has been used for four thousand years and is reportedly the oldest herb cultivated by man. In the Middle Ages, the elder tree was believed to be inhabited by a spirit known as the “elder mother” whose permission was needed if ever the tree was to be pruned. The lady gave her consent by remaining silent but inevitably felling elders was considered to be bad luck. Such respect was understandable, since the elder was a complete medicine chest. The leaves formed the basis of a “green ointment” for sprains and strains, the inner bark is a strong purgative, the berries – a good source of vitamin c – provided protection against colds and infections, whilst the flowers are strongly anti-catarrhal.

English herbalist, Henry Box of Plymouth, England says, “…for colds, influenza, fevers, inflammation of the brain, pneumonia (inflammation of the lungs,) stomach, bowels or any part, this is a certain cure. I have never known it to fail, even when given up to and at the point of death. It will not only save at the eleventh hour, but at the last minute of that hour. It is so harmless that you cannot use it amiss, and so effectual that you cannot give it in vain.”  “Dr. Edward E. Shook, Advanced Treatise in Herbology, 1978.”

Mama Tea Review!

mama tea review - natural herbal tea
The following excerpt is a review emailed to Mama Tea today:
“This is not so much a review of the teas; I will leave that to my pregnant daughter…..(although I have tried one of them already which put onto the search for more!), it’s more about my experience of the service I received recently.
 
I just happened to be the first person to place an order on the new website and there were a few ‘teething’ problems that prevented me from completing my order. I sent an email quoting my problem and received the promised “reply within 1 hour” from Anna Louise personally. She fixed the problem almost immediately. After several email exchanges I became aware that I was feeling very welcomed and valued as a customer by her prompt personal attention and warm generosity. Thank you Anna Louise. I have shared my experience and the deliciousness of the teas with my daughter and friends, one of whom is a midwife, she said she would pass on the same to her new mums. 
 
So, if you are thinking of placing an order for some lovely Mama Tea, don’t hesitate! Go, Mama, Go!!”

Ginger cure for morning sickness – Morning Mama Natural Herbal Tea


Morning Sickness

If you are one of the unlucky ones like Anna (founder of Mama Tea), you thought that your daily “morning” sickness would subside after week 12 and you would be wrong. Anna suffered with morning sickness until week 24 with her first pregnancy and week 20 with her second baby. She recalls how it felt:

“I would wake up and feel sick, so I would have a teeny tiny slice of toast and it would subside for all of…..2 minutes. I then tried NOT eating and it became much worse. I tried eating more and the same. It was delicate balancing act with food to ensure you were eating the right foods and just the right balance of food. Awful! I remember my husband buying ginger nut biscuits but the smell was too overpowering, so the only person that ate ginger nut biscuits to help with morning sickness in our household was my husband!”

When Anna decided to create a natural range of teas to help with pregnancy and breastfeeding, she was very careful to blend the ginger morning sickness tea so that it was not too overpowering and was a subtle taste and smell.

Morning Mama Ginger and Chamomile Herbal Tea

Morning Mama mama tea Natural Herbal Tea in disAnna blended in whole chamomile heads, lemon peel and orange peel. She also added a touch of lemon balm. The reason for including all of these extra herbs is that ALL of them help with nausea and sickness, so Morning Mama is a powerful morning sickness remedy!

Morning Mama Review

We received this testimonial only last week – have a read – Morning Mama helped this customer to keep working at the early stages of her pregnancy….

“I started using Morning Mama Tea when I was 6 weeks pregnant. I was sceptical about the tea helping,but the nausea and sickness was unbearable. I can honestly say that the tea has helped me cope with the nausea and helped me to manage working whilst not feeling my best. This is my third pregnancy and the nausea has stayed with me until I was 23 weeks. I found brewing the tea in a thermos cup great as I could sip the tea throughout the day and the tea stayed hot”.

Melanie, 27 weeks pregnant and mother of two beautiful girls.

If you are suffering with morning sickness, give Morning Mama a go and please let us know if it has helped you too!

All the best

Breastfeeding Tea – The Story of New Mama Breastfeeding Herbal Tea


The Story of New Mama – Breastfeeding Tea

Breastfeeding Herbal Tea - New Mama

The Mama of Mama Tea, Anna Simpson, started Mama Tea whilst she was breastfeeding her second baby. Breastfeeding is one of the subjects that we feel is completely up to each individual woman to decide but there is no doubt that it is beneficial for both mama and baby.

Anna developed the delicious New Mama breastfeeding natural herbal tea to help women with their breast milk supply. So, what is the story of New Mama Breastfeeding herbal tea

The Start of the Story- Ingredients

Anna made sure there were some fantastic herbs in New Mama to help women to breastfeed their babies. She blended three “galatagogues” into the tea.

We have Nettle, Fennel and Fenugreek, all of which prompt the body to create breast milk and increase supply of breast milk.

Nettle Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Nettle Leaf – Urtica Dioca

Familiar to most of us as something that stings us when we’re out in the countryside, nettle leaves are also have lots of uses in herbal medicine. Nettle leaf is a powerful “galactagogue” that helps to produce breast milk and breast milk production,

History of Nettle

Stinging nettles were once used in a rather bizarre treatment known as urtication which involved beating paralysed limbs with stinging nettles in an attempt to stimulate sensations. The same remedy was also recommended for rheumatic pains while the Romans reputedly planted the small annual continental nettle (U. pilulifera) along British roads because they believed the country was so cold they would need to beat their bodies with nettles to keep warm. Nettles sting because the hairs on their stems and leaves contain histamine which is a potent skin irritant.

Fennel Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fennel Seeds – Foeniculum Officinalis

Fennel symbolises longevity, courage and strength, the seeds are a rich source of minerals and nutrients. This herb is also a fantastic “galactagogue” that helps to create breast milk production and encourage breast milk production.

History

The Greeks called fennel “Marathron” which is derived from the herb meaning “to grow thin” and it seems to have been used as an early slimming aid. The Roman physician Galen classified it as hot and dry.

Fenugreek Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fenugreek Seeds – Trigonella Foenum-Graecum

Fenugreek is familiar from Indian and Middle Eastern cookery and the herb gives a spicy flavour to curries, pickles and garnishes.

History

The herb rather than seeds, known as hilba, is used in tea in modern Egypt as a remedy for spasmodic abdominal pain – due to both digestive upsets and menstruation. In Ayurveda the plant (known as methi) is regarded as a good remedy in convalescence and debility helping to stimulate liver function and ease indigestion. The Chinese also regard fenugreek (Hu Lu Ba) as a kidney remedy – to warm the kidneys, dispel cold and relieve pain.

Anna was also conscious that many women suffer from mastitis during breastfeeding so she also blended red clover into the New Mama tea as this is proven to be an effective remedy for mastitis.

Anna also wanted to help women suffering with the baby blues so she also blended lemon balm in the New Mama tea to help mamas.

The Middle of the Story – Reviews

Reviews of New Mama breastfeeding herbal tea

The story of our breastfeeding tea would not be complete without looking at what some of our customers have said about New Mama tea. A customer once said to Anna – “This New Mama breastfeeding tea is feeding my baby” – it is comments like that, that make the Mama tearful and make Mama Tea the brand it is.

I was a bit dubious about this one as I’m not a fennel fan, but once I tasted it, wow … there is a real liquorice flavour that is delightful and leaves your mouth feeling alive and refreshed.

When I was breastfeeding my daughter I got to the point where I felt I wanted to naturally increase my milk supply and took Fenugreek supplements (which I felt really helped with my supply), this tea has the added advantage that it contains fennel, fenugreek and nettle, which are all galactagogues – herbs which help to promote milk production and flow.

I’m a little bit addicted to this herbal tea as I’m a big liquorice fan and will also be giving fennel another go!

New Mama:A lovely fennel, liquorice and lemon balm blend. A delicious breastfeeding tea that helps increase the milk supply.

Tried new mama for the 1st time at the secc! It was so good I had to buy some!! Will definitely be popping along to my nearest Tesco to get some more!!! A lovely aftertaste unlike most others!! As a breastfeeding mum it’s great to know this is beneficial for me & baby!!

I bought the New Mama tea and was a little scared when I opened the box because the smell was so strong! I shouldn’t have been as it was DELICIOUS!! I would recommend this product to anyone and have bought some for friends baby shower gifts too. Great customer services too by the way. Xxxx 

We have many more and will share them all on our website….if New Mama breastfeeding tea has meant something to you, please let us know @info@mamatea.com
