    Herbs for PMS

    Make a tea or tincture of dandelion or stinging nettles to treat bloating that comes with premenstrual syndrome. Use throughout the day and at bedtime to relieve the pressure of water retention and to aid the kidneys in proper function. Herbs that are calming, such as chamomile, lavender and passionflower, can aid in calming nerves and levelling emotions.

    Fertility Herbs

    Herbs can increase a woman's ability to get pregnant. Used over a period of time, they will enhance her body's production of hormones that create an optimum environment for a fertilised egg. Wild yam, wild carrot and red clover are some of the more common herbs to enhance fertility.

    Herbs for Pregnancy

    Red raspberry leaf tea is a well known uterine tonic. It can be steeped to make a tea or infusion and consumed in the last few weeks of pregnancy. High in vitamins B,C and E, plus calcium, iron and potassium, it is a treasure trove of nutrition for expectant mothers. The uterus expands in size during pregnancy and exerts pressure during labour. Nourishing this organ before birth can help it work more effectively.
