In many different cultures and older traditions a new mother is taken care of while she rests, heals and recovers following the birth of a child. Unfortunately, our fast paced world doesn't always allow for this anymore. The old saying that 'it takes a village to raise a child' is possibly another way of saying it is complex and should not be done alone. Childbirth can be an intense experience and often leaves women feeling sore, bruised and vulnerable. In pregnancy, reproductive hormone levels in a woman's body are 20-30 times greater than normal. At delivery, hormone levels drop abruptly, along with changes in amino acids, neurotransmitters, and thyroid hormones. The sudden drop in oestrogen, progesterone, endorphins, and other hormones may trigger fatigue, the same way moodiness may be triggered by premenstrual changes in these hormones. Many women feel exhausted after labor and delivery and may need a long time to fully recover. New mothers rarely get adequate rest. These teas have been designed to offer some love, nourishment and support on your journey and are to be sipped with your village.
