Why I love Mountain Meadow Herbs – and you should too!

I learned about Mountain Meadow Herbs when I was pregnant. I was looking for some natural ways to supplement and I knew that liquid herbs were some of the best ways to increase vitamins and minerals in terms of absorption and safety.

I used Mountain Meadow Herbs’ Gentle birth formula during the last weeks of pregnancy to prepare my body for labor. I had an amazing natural labor. It was fast – only about 2.5 hours. I was only in pain for about 10 minutes during the pushing phase. I highly recommend trying their formula if you are considering a natural labor. After using them, I fell in love with Mountain Meadow Herbs and their products so much.

Among home birth supplies this is the number one product women ask for when they are expecting and it has many benefits to the body during and after labor.
  • Help your body be at its best when labor starts. Perceived benefits include easier, shorter, and more comfortable labor and delivery, plus a shorter recovery time. Recommended by midwives and doulas and and even doctors comment on the smooth and easy deliveries that mothers experience when using it. We recommend 4 ounces for the full effect.
  • The 2 ounce version contains these natural herbs: Blue Cohosh root, Skullcap herb, False Unicorn root, Ginger root, Motherwort herb, Partridge Berry herb and Red Raspberry leaf.

Is There a Gentle birth tincture without blue cohosh?

If you’re searching for a gentle birth tincture without blue cohosh, you’re in luck. Many natural health stores or online retailers offer birthing tinctures specifically formulated to support a gentle and smooth childbirth process, minus the blue cohosh.

These tinctures often contain a blend of herbs like raspberry leaf, motherwort, and black cohosh, which are known for their supportive properties during labor and delivery. These herbs can help promote relaxation, ease discomfort, and support uterine tone without the inclusion of blue cohosh.

Always remember to consult with a qualified healthcare provider or herbalist before introducing any new herbal supplements, especially during pregnancy. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure that any tincture you choose is safe and suitable for your individual needs.

What are liquid herbs?

Liquid herbs, also known as herbal tinctures or liquid herbal extracts, are concentrated forms of single herbs or herbal blends that are extracted in a liquid, usually alcohol or glycerin. The process involves soaking the chosen herbs in the liquid to extract the medicinal properties. The result is a potent, easy-to-use form of herbal medicine. Liquid herbs are typically taken orally, often mixed with water or juice.

They are known for their fast absorption rate, as they bypass the digestive system and go directly into the bloodstream. This makes them a popular choice for those seeking the benefits of herbal medicine in a convenient, readily absorbable format.

What to look for when buying herbal tinctures

When buying herbal tinctures, there are several factors to consider to ensure you’re getting a high-quality product. Here are some key things to look for:

1. Ingredients: Check the label for the list of ingredients. A good quality tincture should contain minimal ingredients – primarily the herb or herbs, and the solvent (usually alcohol or glycerin). Avoid tinctures with unnecessary additives or preservatives.

2. Herb Source: The quality of the herbs used in the tincture is crucial. Look for tinctures made from organic or wildcrafted herbs to ensure they’re free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

3. Extraction Solvent: Alcohol is the most common solvent used in tinctures due to its ability to effectively extract a wide range of medicinal compounds from the herbs. However, if you prefer an alcohol-free tincture, glycerin or vinegar can be used as alternatives.

4. Manufacturer’s Reputation: Buy from a reputable company that is transparent about their sourcing and production methods. Look for companies that follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

5. Strength and Dosage: The strength of a tincture is usually indicated by the ratio of herb to solvent (for example, 1:5 or 1:10). The dosage instructions should also be clearly stated on the label.

6. Packaging: Tinctures should be packaged in dark glass bottles to protect the contents from light, which can degrade the tincture over time.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider or a knowledgeable herbalist before starting any new herbal supplement, especially if you have any health conditions or are taking other medications.

  1. We are currently using the Para Rid from MMH. 🙂 It’s our first round, can’t wait to see how it works for us.

  2. […] I bought Gentle birth formula from Mountain Meadow Herbs to help prepare for labor. This formula is supposed to help tone your uterus making labor faster and easier. I did have a very fast labor (about 2.5 hours) and it was only painful for about 10 minutes when I was pushing. I highly recommend taking this if you are wanting help for a natural labor.

  3. Hi. I am taking the Gentle Birth tincture from MMH now. I have a question. I hope you are still checking these comments. We are having storms blow through for the next 10 days. Last night after one of them and taking the GB I started having ctx every 3-4 minutes that were certainly felt. They did not seem like BH. I still have 9 days before my MW can deliver my baby. So now that all that is out there… Is this how GB works? Does it mimic labor or do you think I am sensitive to the formula? I tried calling MMH but they are not open on the weekends. I sure don’t want to go to the ER as I’m planning a home birth, but I also don’t want to stop taking something out of unjustified fear. Can you offer any advice or share how the GBF effected you? Thanks.

    • I know for me, before I even started taking GB I started having ctx every 3-4 minutes – but they weren’t real labor… they were more like overworked uterus muscles contracting each night. My midwife would have me go take a bath and then lay down for an hour or so or just go to bed for them to stop. Most of the time they stopped within 2 hours and also I had to make sure I wasn’t dehydrated. I know this may be too late, but I would call your midwife and just see what you think.

  4. Hi there! Great write-up, as I too took Gentle Birth for the end of my third pregnancy. It was an excellent, fast labor, and I only felt pain during the last few minutes. I highly recommend their product!

  5. I am a strong believer in the power of natural healing, and Mountain Meadow Herbs has many good, potent products. I have been a long-time customer and have come to know the organization well.

    But, this seems like a post that has been sponsored by Mountain Meadow Herbs… Which, if true, is a serious conflict of interest.

    Also, in response to the commentary regarding sources for a calcium supplement by Mrs. Garber (coral calcium doesn’t make sense because we don’t eat coral reef)- this is illogical and contradictory. First, if a person finds value and gets results from something like coral calcium, then it makes sense. Second, many fish eat coral, and people eat fish, thereby consuming some amount of calcium that originated from coral. Finally, look at the ingredients that compose Herbal Calcium from Mountain Meadow Herbs (Stinging Nettle Leaf, Horsetail, etc.); most of which would not be found at the dinner table, either.

    But then, you have many examples of ingredients used in the Mountain Meadow Herbs product line, all of which are formulated by Mrs. Garber, that defy her own words. One example would be Spirulina in the Weight Control Shake (I wonder how much Cyanobacteria from Alkaline waters Mrs. Garber uses in cooking?). Then, of course, you have all of the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that are either systhesized or refined from non-food sources (but, in fairness, many do come from food-source: Bromelain enzyme is extracted from pineapple).

    My point is this: there are many ways to improve your body via supplementation. To thoroughly research and inform yourself is the most important aspect of taking control of your health.
