Herbs for women's reproductive self-care


Welcome to the world of women who are reclaiming herbal knowledge for health and empowerment.

This place is about having babies.  It is about having babies in good health, and nurturing the mother to nurture the child.  It is about vibrant herbs that support the mother-baby, and herbs that help make rich, nourishing milk.

The knowledge of these herbs has belonged to women for millennia.    This is a place for sharing that knowledge and keeping it alive.

Most of the information on this website comes from Rachel Westfall's doctoral research (2000-2003). The literature reviews on specific herbal medicines have not been updated since they were written, and new information is always coming out. Please interpret the information you find here with caution, and do your own research before using any medications.
