This tea is for expecting Mothers. It will prepare you for childbirth by bringing iron, minerals, vitamins, and strengthening the immune system. This tea should only be steeped for 5 min or less. I recommend taking 1-2 cups daily especially first thing in the rising. As you get to your last trimester its best to have as much tea as possible. This tea comes with your own reusable strainer. ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR DOULA, MIDWIFE, AND DOCTOR BEFORE TAKING HERBS. THIS TEA CAN NOT CURE OR HEAL YOU FROM ANY DISEASES AND IS NOT APPROVED BY THE FDA.
