Yoni is a Sanskrit word that interprets to "womb," "vagina," or, our favorite, "source." Why are we talking about yonis? Well, raspberry leaf is an old friend. Raspberry leaves were originally used to prepare a woman's womb for childbirth and today many people believe in the leaf's power to improve the birthing experience. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should OF COURSE consult with your doctor on what you should and shouldn't be consuming. But we were pretty impressed by this yoni-friendly leaf.
Here's what researchers say about raspberry leaf:
- Raspberry leaves help relieve premenstrual symptoms, such as cramping, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea.
- Raspberry leaf tea is used to strengthen the uterus. The leaves contain fragarine, a plant compound that helps tone and tighten muscles in the pelvic area. This can improve labor outcome and help prevent excessive bleeding after childbirth.
- Many women claim that red raspberry leaf tea helps shorten labor. One study showed that consuming raspberry leaf tea shortened the second stage of labor by an average of 9.59 minutes.
