Now this herb here, I want all my sisters to remember.
Red Raspberry is one of my favorite herbs! It is one of the most talked about and proven herbs to be great for young women, especially during pregnancy. This is an herb I always make sure to introduce to my sisters. It’s high nutrient profile helps reduce pain and ease childbirth, and it has properties that help strengthen the uterine walls. I recommend this herb to help to relieve painful menstruation and help with some of the symptoms after pregnancy. I have been taking red raspberry since my 20’s and can attest to it being essential during my pregnancies. For me it curved my nausea, I didn’t have any morning sickness when I was supplementing this herb into my diet. It also helped increase my iron levels and maintain them at a good level.
Something I always tell my sisters to notice on herbal walks is how red the red raspberry vine is. The red vine reminds me of a vein in the body, reminding me that it’s rich in iron. This was really important because many women suffer from low iron levels during pregnancy and have anemia. I see this herb all the time in overgrown areas of brush or throughout the Wissahickon Valley Park. Have you ever spotted red raspberry before? Let me know in the comments!
