Many customers ask if they need to avoid alcohol-based tinctures during pregnancy or while nursing. The answer is no; tinctures contain a very small amount of alcohol, similar to that found in a ripe banana, and are safe to consume while pregnant or nursing (if the herbs themselves are approved for that use). Some people choose alcohol-free alternatives for personal, dietary, or religious reasons.
After a woman's first pregnancy, the uterus easily and (usually) painlessly contracts back down to regain its normal shape and size after the birth. For the second or subsequent births however, it is more difficult for the uterus to do this work, and these contractions can be quite painful. For some women, afterpains can be as strong and even more painful than labor contractions. Afterpains seem to be more intense with each subsequent birth. This tincture will help relax the uterus and calm afterpains while still allowing the uterus to regain its normal shape and size. We have had mothers who birthed their tenth child remark how incredibly well it worked for them! (This product is safe to use while breastfeeding.)
