- Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) has been used for thousands of years by Native Americans - and some forms of the herb have also been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has become more well known in the Western World through research on its supportive effect on hormone functioning and support of the female reproductive system. (Liske E. "Therapeutic efficacy and safety of Cimicifuga racemosa for gynecologic disorders". Adv Ther. 1998 Jan-Feb;15(1):45-53. Review.) Frei-Kleiner, S., Schaffner, W., Rahlfs, V. W., Bodmer, Ch, and Birkhauser, M. "Cimicifuga racemosa dried ethanolic extract in menopausal disorders: a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial." Maturitas 8-16-2005;51(4):397-404. Black Cohosh can also help promote soothed nerves and support a state of relaxation.
- Cramp Bark (Viburnum prunifolium) supports relaxation and helps to address common nervous tension. It has also been researched for its effects on the uterus and the female reproductive system. (Baldini L, Brambilla G, Parodi S. "Research on the uterine action of Viburnum prunifolium". Arch Ital Sci Farmacol. 1964 Jan;14:55-63).
- Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris) is widely used to help lessen common nervous tension - particularly useful during childbirth! Pasque Flower also supports stable mood and feelings of well-being - important after childbirth. It has also been used as a uterotonic - supporting a healthy uterus!
- Fennel Seeds (Foeniculum vulgare) have been used traditionally to 'settle and calm' the digestive system - but can also support the body in its natural task of producing breast-milk. Furthermore, this herb also supports healthy digestion in babies. (Alexandrovich, I., Rakovitskaya, O., Kolmo, E., Sidorova, T., and Shushunov, S. "The effect of fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare) seed oil emulsion in infantile colic: a randomized, placebo-controlled study. " Altern.Ther.Health Med. 2003;9(4):58-61).

11. Do AfterBirth Drops have any side effects?
No, AfterBirth Drops does not have any side effects, as it is 100% natural and herbal.
12. How long does a bottle last?
AfterBirth Drops is formulated specifically for the last stage of labor (the delivery of the placenta) and one bottle is more than sufficient for one labor. The formula has a long shelf life when stored correctly, and the remainder may be used for subsequent births during approximately a 5 year period.
13. What is the third stage of labor?
The third stage of labor takes place soon after you have delivered your new baby and involves the delivery of the placenta and membranes which have been nourishing and protecting your unborn child for the last 9 months.
The third stage is the shortest stage of labor and generally lasts only 15-20 minutes. Contractions will be weaker and labor pains not as severe as the previous stages. Exhaustion is the most common problem! The excitement of holding the new baby often eases women through the delivery of the placenta, although many find that they are tired out by the time the baby has been born, and find it difficult to summon up the energy to deliver the placenta.
14. Can I begin breastfeeding before the third stage is over?
Breastfeeding should be started as soon after delivery of your baby as is possible.
The third stage of labor is an excellent time to put your new little one to the breast. This will not only encourage bonding between the two of you, but will also speed up delivery of the placenta and increase the tone of the uterus, preventing bleeding.
15. What else can I do?
The time immediately following your baby's birth, even before the placenta is delivered, is a crucial period for bonding. Of course, you will want to see and cuddle your new little one as much as possible, anyway. Most routine newborn procedures can be done without taking your baby away, so don't allow him/her to be separated from you at first, unless it is medically necessary. Procedures such as weighing and eye drops can be delayed for a while.
The most important thing at this stage is for you and your partner to relax and bond with the newest little addition to your family!
