Strong Mama Nursing Tea Recipe
One of the main concerns I hear from my moms at the postpartum visit is “I’m just worried I won’t make enough milk for my baby?” My answer? Chances are if you’re nursing on-demand (which translates to: constantly), staying hydrated, eating well, and resting as much as you can, you probably will! If you have deeper concerns definitely contact a La Leche League leader, a certified lactation counselor (CLC) or a Lactation Consultant (RLC)—feel free to contact me for breastfeeding support recommendations in the Tulsa area. But if you’re just wanting to give your milk supply (and your peace of mind) a boost, mix yourself up a cup or two of Strong Mama Nursing Tea.
One of my beautiful doula clients passed on this recipe. Simple and healthy. You can find the herbal ingredients at Peace of Mind Bookstore or Natural Grocers here in Tulsa or order the them online from a place like Mountain Rose Herbs.
