Miscarriage Basic Formula
These herbs have been used for over 30 years in the prevention of miscarriage. It is especially helpful for those women who have experienced habitual (3+ miscarriages in a row) trouble with miscarriage in the first trimester; however, we have also seen excellent success with women whose bodies threaten miscarriage even in the second trimester. The following herbs make up the formula and an explanation of their use and benefits is listed for your knowledge and convenience.
Squawvine has a long history of use traditionally by Native Americans, and subsequently by those choosing a more natural approach, for a successful, easy childbirth, lactation, and other reproductive conditions such as painful menses. Midwives and herbalists most commonly use it when uterine “weakness” is indicated by irregular periods or bleeding during the first trimester. Proper use of this herb promotes a healthy, full term, no problem pregnancy as a result.
Wild Yam is a strong anti-spasmodic herb used in women’s health. It is known to sedate the uterus, balance hormones, and improve the hepatic (pertaining to the liver) processes. It is used also as a powerful aid for nausea during pregnancy and to prevent threatened miscarriage since it contains glycosides from which the body can manufacture the hormones progesterone and cortisone, which are needed to maintain a pregnancy.
False Unicorn Root is strongly recommended for women who have experienced repeated miscarriages. It may be of help even when the cervix is too loose to hold the pregnancy, as it is a powerful tonic. In tincture form, it can be used beginning a month before conception and until the squawvine mixture is started. It is also a well-known feminine hormone balancer, uterine tonic, and reproductive strengthener (for some it aids with fertility). It contains steroidal saponins that are primarily estrogenic but in effect allows it to act to bring hormones within normal ranges from one extreme or the other (so regardless of what is taking place, it regulates). It works wonderfully with the squawvine in preventing threatened miscarriage because it helps with digestive and liver deficiency that may at times be a cause of repeat miscarriages.
Cramp bark is also an anti-spasmodic. It acts as a mild sedative (an all natural one) and astringent. It is an excellent relaxer of muscle tension, spasms, and cramps for both smooth and striated muscles. It has an affinity for the uterus and is the first herb of choice for relieving menstrual cramps and for its ability to decrease excessive menstrual flow. This herb is especially important in miscarriage prevention since it helps to stop premature contracting of the uterus, which may encourage the expulsion of a healthy baby.
