Gentle Mothering with Catnip Tea

A little catnip tea from my collection of herbs growing in the sunroom helped me sleep through the night uninterrupted (sort of rare for me) and wake up feeling refreshed.

Catnip is included in many postpartum tea blends because it is thought to help the uterus shrink back down to size and can be soothing to mom and even soothing to an upset baby through her breastmilk.

It's not recommended during pregnancy to its uterine-stimulating action (an emmenagogue).

Have a beautiful day!
