When you’re pregnant, you spend a lot of time preparing for the birth of your bundle of joy. From packing your hospital bag to painting your nursery, you probably have a long list of to-dos. But have you thought about what you can do to help your body through the process? After all, labour is an experience like no other. As a physical act, birthing a human is a pretty extreme sport (that makes any other extreme sport look like a game of tiddly winks). And afterwards, your body takes time to recover.
Luckily, NaturoBest’s Birth Prep and Recovery is here to help you prepare for labour and recover quickly after birth. It’s just the help you need to get your body ready for your bub’s upcoming arrival, and afterwards supports your body to bounce back like a pro.
A tonic for your uterus
When it comes to childbirth, your uterus takes centre stage. After providing a nice comfy home for your bambino for nine months, it’s time for your uterus to flex its muscles and help your bub on their journey to the outside world. That’s quite the workout.
NaturoBest’s Birth Prep and Recovery can help you prepare for labour and assist with uterine recovery after birth. It prepares the uterus for childbirth and acts as a uterine tonic, enhancing uterine health. And afterwards, it acts as an astringent, helping to tighten tissues (which may help with your post-birth recovery).
The goodness of raspberry leaf
Raspberry leaf has been shown to reduce the second stage of labour (the pushing stage) by 9.6 minutes. And when you’re pushing a living watermelon out of something the size of a lemon, every second counts. Studies also show that there was also a lower rate of forceps deliveries in women who were taking 1.2 grams of raspberry leaf (the amount found in Birth Prep and Recovery) twice daily prior to giving birth.
The power of squaw vine
What really makes NaturoBest’s Birth Prep and Recovery stand out is the ingredient squaw vine. Squaw vine is a herb traditionally used in the third trimester to prepare for labour. In combination with red raspberry, it can help with postpartum recovery due to its uterine tonic and astringent qualities. An astringent is a substance that causes constriction of mucus membranes and exposed tissues, reducing blood flow. So basically, it can help shrink everything back into shape.
Vegan-friendly and free from GMOs and many allergens, this formula should be taken twice daily from week 34 of pregnancy and continued until six weeks after birth. Remember to consult your health professional before use.
NaturoBest’s Birth Prep and Recovery are available online from NaturoBest ($34.95).
