Miss Withania’s Babymaker Tea was created for one purpose only: improving fertility. And that is why we are proud of its unpleasant taste.
There are many fertility teas out there and they all have one thing in common: they all taste good.
It makes sense, after all, you need people to buy it if you want to keep your business alive. People do not buy something that tastes bad. And that is where our founder saw the main problem. Most fertility herbs taste bad. If it tastes good, you like to drink it, but it’s not fighting for you as much as you would like.
After a long study and many months of trials and testing, we came up with a mixture of the most effective fertility herbs to increase your chances of getting pregnant, ignoring all other factors like taste.
So, how does the Babymaker Tea work?
12 herbs blend together to optimize the female reproductive system.
Ladie’s Mantle: A common herb in Europe and Asia, has been used for hundreds of years by women to treat heavy menstruation, hormone imbalance and infertility. It’s astringent, diuretic and anti-inflammatory. One of our favorites!
Marjoram: It has been used forever in Chinese medicine to treat infections and help digestion. However, recent studies have shown the positive effect this herb has had on women, especially on women suffering from PCOS.
Chaste Tree Berries: The benefits of this plant to improve fertility are widely known around the world. Commonly know as Vitex, it helps regulate ovulatory function as well as menstrual cramps and other side effects of menstruation. Clinical tests also suggest that Vitex is quite helpful for women with PCOS.
Rose Petals: Roses are not only beautiful to look at, they are also our helpful friends. Probably because the beauty of the flower, they have usually been used for cosmetic purposes and beauty remedies. However, they are much more than that. Rose petals have vitamin C, help you calm and relax, soothe sore throats, help the liver and support women’s bodies, giving the other herbs a little kick to improve fertility.
Rosemary: A herb mostly known in the kitchen, giving plates an extraordinary smell and flavor, is also a great friend for women. It soothes menstrual cramps and helps regulate the menstrual cycle.
Red Clover Buds: Another flower that helps pregnancy. Traditionally, it has been used as a herb for cancer patients and as a blood purifier. Because of its detoxifying help and its aid for a better circulatory function, it supports all the other herbs to improve the reproductive system and boosting fertility. Good herbalists have been using this herb for years to treat patients for infertility.
Geranium: Mostly use as essential oil to help you get pregnant (feel free to order one anywhere on the internet for extra help), it has always been used as an overall healing herb. But the reproductive system also needs healing sometimes. It soothes menstrual or menopause complaints and, in combination with the other herbs, makes it the perfect aid to improve fertility.
Nettle: One of our favorite herbs at Miss Withania, since it has so many wonderful benefits for a woman’s body. It strengths the kidneys and adrenal glands, detoxifies, but most importantly, it tones and nourishes the uterus. It is high in vitamin K and minerals, which makes it ideal to keep drinking even after the baby is there to improve breastfeeding (this is why it is also an ingredient of our Milkmaker Tea).
Damiana: A tricky herb. It has a horrendous smell and taste, but it is known as a libido booster, which is how making a baby actually starts ;) But because of its calming, nourishing and toning effects, it is also ideal to improve fertility, especially combined with the other herbs.
Pomegranate Seeds: It is commonly said that pomegranate aids women in all their aspects of there reproductive system and that is why it looks like an uterus. In fact, in China it is a symbol of fertility. It makes sense. Pomegranates are rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals that improve fertility in both men and women.
Mistletoe: So much more than an excuse to kiss someone! It has been used throughout history to improve the female reproductive system. Folk medicine correlate its used with increased fertility. Although there are no studies supporting this, we firmly believe in its power and that’s why it is included.
Mugwort: It has been used for years to treat menstrual disorders and infertility. Also used in Chinese medicine, it can be a great companion for fertility acupuncture.
For full disclosure, two more very powerful herbs were considered for the Babymaker Tea. However, because of their scarcity and therefor also high price if they are able to be found, it was not possible to include them. We are contemplating the creation of a Babymaker Tea Premium as soon as we are able to get our hands on these precious and scarce herbs!
Because of some properties of the herbs, it is important that the Babymaker Tea is not consumed when you are pregnant, since it could be harmful for the fetus. This is why it is ideal to drink on a daily basis before ovulation as well as before embryo implantation when doing IVF.
The more help, the better, so you can always try it out with acupuncture, meditation and any other help there is. (Try our post 19 tips to improve fertility).
