When I gave birth to twins nine weeks early, the nurse in the NICU told me that the best thing I could do for them was to pump breast milk. The babies were less than 4 lbs. each and my milk could give them antibodies and nutrients that modern medicine cannot duplicate or match. Unfortunately, I found pumping exclusively was hard for me. Another mother recommended the folks over at Herb Lore who set me up with their Nursing Tea (Moringa Blend). I made iced tea out of it and drank a 16oz. bottle every 3 hours when I pumped. My milk supply shot up dramatically by the second day. The babies got only my breastmilk and by their due date, they had both tripled their birth weight! The doctors had some medications that they could prescribe to increase my milk supply, but the herbs were completely natural and safe for the babies with no side effects for any of us. And they worked so well! These herbs were lifesavers for us, literally. And as an added bonus, the doctor said the Raspberry Leaf in the tea was very good for my uterus after the c-section. I recovered in record time! K.M.
Herb Lore’s Hem Stopper Tincture is used to help staunch bleeding after a birth. It’s best used immediately after the birth (and after the birth of the placenta), and as long as the bleeding or risk of bleeding continues. If the placenta has not been birthed yet and is the cause for bleeding, the Placenta Release Tincture is then recommended.
This tincture is not for use during pregnancy, but is fine for birth.
The Hem Stopper Tincture contains organic Blue Cohosh Root, Yarrow, Motherwort and Alfalfa. The Blue Cohosh is an oxytocic herb, helping the uterus to contract and clamp down, while the Yarrow is a power stypic herb (stops bleeding). Motherwort is well-known for being a reliable at helping to stop bleeding and as a uterine tonic, and the Alfalfa is very high in Vitamin K, the blood coagulating vitamin.
Suggestions for use:
Give 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) of the tincture immediately after the baby’s birth. Continue to give 1-2 droppersful every 5-15 minutes until bleeding stops.
