The inspiration for Gentle Birth Formula came from the aged pages of an old but wise midwifery guide, where it was used as a tea to tone the uterine muscles and help prepare the mother to give birth. This forgotten but timeless medicinal recipe was brought to life again in 2001, tested and updated to reflect what modern research has taught us. These herbs were used to make beautiful golden extracts and combined to create an easy-to-take, quickly-absorbed, liquid formulation to help your body be at its best when labor starts.
Perceived benefits include an easier, shorter, and more comfortable labor and delivery, plus a shorter recovery time. Strengthens & tones the uterus in preparation for labor, speeds healing & recovery. Provides support for a smooth, less painful delivery and may reduce the need to induce labor.
Recommended by midwives and doulas and perfect for making a labor prep tea in the third trimester. Gentle Birth Formula has become a favorite of midwives who attend home births and even doctors comment on the smooth and easy deliveries mothers experience who use it. Today it's used in many countries around the world, including Canada, Europe, Asia, Central and South America, and Australia. Count our Gentle Birth formula among your labor must-haves, and help your body be at its best when labor starts.
Liquid extracts are up to 70% more effective than tablets or capsules, and more concentrated than conventional teas made at home. Absorption is almost instant and in many cases benefits can be seen quickly.
