Mother’s milk tea is a safe and easy way to boost your milk supply when breastfeeding.
For most mothers who experience it, chronic low milk supply comes as a devastating surprise.
Some have already endured fertility struggles, difficult pregnancies, or both. Others are managing chronic health conditions that are known to be associated with chronic low milk supply but are never given information on how their health might affect lactation. Many have no known risk factors or red flags, making the experience all the more bewildering.
Nearly all who experience chronic low milk supply will encounter disbelief, dismissal and/or systemic roadblocks from family, friends, lactation professionals and/or medical providers. My hope is this mother’s milk tea recipe will reach and help anybody suffering from a low milk supply.
The healing properties of each ingredient are mind-blowing.

Fenugreek tea has been used throughout the ages to prevent fevers, soothe stomach disorders, and to treat diabetics. Fenugreek seeds are high in vitamins A, C, thiamin, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, and selenium.
Fenugreek tea can help reduce inflammation and is also highly beneficial for acid reflux, heartburn, respiratory issues, allergies, ulcers, gastritis, indigestion, and constipation. Powerful compounds in fenugreek bind to toxins in the digestive tract and can help remove them from the body.
Fenugreek has also been proven to be very helpful to diabetics as it contains an amino acid called 4-hydroxy-isoleucine which helps insulin secretion. It can be an effective natural means of controlling blood sugar levels.
Among its many other benefits, fenugreek tea is amazing for mothers who are breastfeeding. It has been shown to increase milk production in lactating women significantly.
Fennel has such a wide range of nutritional and healing benefits that it is considered both a vegetable AND a herb. Fennel contains powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Further, fennel helps prevent gas from forming in the stomach and intestines – it is known as a natural anti-flatulent. It is also helpful for sinus congestion, bronchitis, renal colic, anemia, hypertension, macular degeneration, constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Red Raspberry Leaf
Red raspberry leaf is incredible for the reproductive system and acts as an overall hormone balancer, supporting the entire endocrine system with hormone output.
Brewed as a tea, raspberry leaf is a powerful tool to aid in fertility and prepare a woman’s body for pregnancy. It has been shown to help prevent miscarriages and is a secret weapon against fatigue and postpartum depression following childbirth.
Not only has raspberry leaf been shown to help boost the production of breast milk, but it also fortifies the mother’s milk with vitamins and minerals for the baby.
This incredible leaf is not only beneficial for women, but it can also be a helpful blood cleanser and overall detoxifier for men.
Because of its antioxidant compounds, such as anthocyanins and polyphenols, raspberry leaf is a wonderful all-purpose anti-inflammatory. Further, it is incredibly helpful for people with iron deficiencies and helps to regrow hair.
