    Default recipe for anti-bleed herbal tea

    I thought our homebirth moms might be interested in this herbal tea recipe. It is to be drank during third stage, and sounds much nicer than a shot in the thigh.

    Ooh, cool! I'm not doing a homebirth, so I won't be able to use it right after Do you think I could drink it when I get home and it would still be effective? I bleed a LOT and am not looking forward to the after pains the 3rd time around!

    I wanted to point out that the recipe they show is for primiparas (first time moms). The one they use for multiparas is in the comments below.

    I'm going to talk to my m/w about it and see if it will be possible to have it - if I don't get risk out of the b/c I don't imagine it will be a problem because they have a kitchen.

    Maybe you could have a thermos with it?

    I would think that the one for multiparas would be helpful even once you get home for the afterpains, the other one seems like it is designed for 3rd stage to prevent hemhorrage. I just left a comment asking if she would still recommend it for multiparas with a history of hemhorrage (since I got pitocin and methergine to control my bleeding after DS was born) and I'm waiting for a reply from her about that.

    Erica, I would think that your birth center with a kitchen would be able to warm it--I'd definitely talk to your midwife about it. It would be harder at the hosptial, though a thermos could work if you stayed home as long as possible so you wouldn't be at the hospital long enough for it to start getting cold.

    I'll be interested in her response on that. I've had pitocin after both DDs to help with the bleeding (I just bleed a lot). I've never had methergine before though. I hate that they have to push on my uterus SO HARD right after in order to get the clots out and the bleeding down. I would love to be able to drink at least one of these (preferably both!) after birth.

    With DD2, we were at the hospital for 1.5 hours before she was born, so maybe it would stay warm if I have an insulated thermos (assuming things go similarly). I should talk to my midwife about it next week.
