Postpartum Depression Brew

  • ½ ounce dried, shredded licorice root
  • 1 ounce dried, crumbled raspberry leaf
  • 1 ounce dried, finely cut rosemary leaves
  • 1 ounce dried, cut skullcap

Mix the dried herbs thoroughly together. Use two teaspoons per cup of boiling water to prepare this strongly scented and interesting tasting tea.

The usual dose is two or more cups daily for several weeks to two months.

A tea made from the herb sage is an excellent post-pregnancy anti-galactagogue that dries up the flow of mother’s milk. But pregnant women should avoid sage at all costs; the herb has steroid-like factors that could induce miscarriage.

Raw garlic is a great all-around food for pregnant women. It helps veins maintain or regain elasticity, reduces hemorrhoids and lowers blood pressure.
