Nettle is a mineral-rich tonic herb which can be very supportive to a pregnant or nursing mother.

Many folks approach midwives, lactation consultants, and doulas for insight on pregnancy and postpartum support herbs. This class, taught by a professional birth doula and herbalist, will help clarify some myths about herbs in pregnancy. (Wait – did Baby Center really just say nettle could cause a miscarriage?!) We’ll cover the basics, from nourishing uterine tonics and postpartum sitz baths to self-care herbs for birthworkers.
