Teas for Pregnancy
Looking for a delicious caffeine-free drink to enjoy during your pregnancy? We are tea experts and can help guide you through our curated collection.
You know teas and tisanes are beneficial and hydrating. The natural ingredients in tea and herbal tisanes may have stress-reducing effects on the body, while other aspects of drinking tea play a part in overall relaxation and calming the mind.
Especially during pregnancy, make moments of repose a daily pleasure. See our morning tea rituals post for tips.
The act of selecting a tea, smelling its aroma, watching it brew, and enjoying the drink will provide a few minutes to focus only on the tea and yourself. Filling you with flavor, warmth, and calm, tea can be a vehicle to promote relaxation and vitality.
In addition to being packed with nutrients, tea and tisanes are hydrating. We all need water to keep our body functioning properly. We need water to aid in digestion, regulate body temperature, lubricate joints and help get rid of waste.
Our herbal tisanes are perfect during pregnancy because they hydrate and provide easily assimilated vitamins and minerals. They’re also packed with antioxidants which may help lower your anxiety and stress levels.
Naturally sweet, with a mild, slightly nutty flavor, Rooibos is a mellow brew. It is made from a plant native to South Africa. It is caffeine-free and packed with minerals like calcium and magnesium, plus those antioxidants we love.
Honeybush, another plant native to South Africa, is also naturally caffeine-free. It is a satisfying way to keep your body well hydrated and may be used to help alleviate digestive problems during pregnancy. Its flavor deepens the more time you allow it to steep, with a hint of honey.
Hibiscus teas are a natural way to promote heart health. We love the incredible, cranberry-like flavor that hibiscus has to offer, both pure and in fruity or spiced blends. Learn more about the benefits of hibiscus tisanes.
