Is it safe to drink tea during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Tea is one of the healthiest beverages that pregnant and breastfeeding women can enjoy throughout their journey especially when the blend is caffeine-free pregnancy herbal tea like ours at Nurtur Tea.

So whether you’re drinking hot or iced here’s our top reasons why drinking tea is so beneficial during pregnancy and when breastfeeding.

1. It can speed up labour and post-birth healing

Evidence shows that drinking a herbal blend of red raspberry leaf tea, like our delicious Red Raspberry Leaf Tea, may reduce complications and interventions in childbirth. The fragarine compound found in the leaves is also known to tighten and tone the walls of your uterus, which can speed up delivery.

Rich in immune-boosting nutrients, Raspberry Leaf provides B vitamins, iron, niacin, manganese, magnesium, selenium, vitamin A and astringent alkaloids. This is a tea that can bring so much nourishment and healing in the last stages of pregnancy and post-birth too.

2. Ease morning sickness and offer instant refreshment when breastfeeding

Being low on energy, feeling tired and sick is common in pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. Our Morning Lift blend is a healthy morning tea that will naturally help the common symptoms of nausea and settle an upset digestive system. It will importantly help you get some fluids in you when sometimes plain water makes you feel even worse (this was the case for Founder Nina with in her second pregnancy). As a rooibos tea pregnancy, you'll also receive a natural energy boost that can help ease symptoms of morning sickness and help you get on with the rest of your day.

For anyone who has has breastfed knows it's thirsty work! This is down to the hormone oxytocin which is released when breastfeeding (the same hormone that is released in childbirth) and this can be make you really thirsty. It’s your body’s way of making sure that you are getting enough water to produce enough breastmilk for your bubba. We recommend staying hydrated by drinking our Nursing Tea hot, a nursing natural tea which can be enjoyed iced or hot. Or even a fruit infusion in our unique Tea Tumbler to keep you hydrated.

3. Lullaby you to dreamland

Nina, the Founder of Nurtur Tea suffered from pregnancy insomnia in her second trimester onwards with her first, “I remember waking up in the middle of the night and my mind was racing from one thought to the next”. Effortlessly, Nina worked with her in-house naturopath and herbalist to formulate a pregnancy sleep tea blend that not only helps to lower stress levels and feelings of anxiety but also create good quality deep sleep.

Nurtur’s caffeine-free Sleep Tea is a herbal tea for sleep that contains antioxidants that binds certain receptors in your brain shown to promote sleepiness and reduce insomnia. Furthermore, blood sugar spikes and crashes can keep us up at night. The organic cinnamon ingredient contained in Nurtur Sleep Tea, keeps everything balanced and helps prevent those spikes from happening. Making this blend the best tea for sleep as it allows a better, uninterrupted night’s sleep.
