Quiescence - Mama Love

Melbourne based apothecary, Quiescence, honours the Golden Month, the first month postpartum also known as the Fourth Trimester - a historically sacred time for healing and recovery. 


The first four weeks postpartum is seen as an important time for rest and recovery in traditional Chinese culture. The main emphasis from a herbal perspective is to rebuild the Liver Blood which not only helps with emotional and physical well being but also encourages healthy milk supply. 


Chinese Angelica (Dang Gui), Ginger (Gan Jiang) and Chinese Dates (Hong Zao)
are a historic postpartum food therapy combination which is often added to hearty lamb or pork stews. Together they act to nourish the Liver Blood and warm the Spleen Yang encouraging healing and healthy circulation.  Goji Berries (Gou Qi Zi) support the Blood nourishing aspect while Dioscorea (Shan Yao), Astragalus (Huang Qi) and Codonopsis Root (Dang Shen) give the Spleen Qi a strong boost encouraging good digestive function and supporting the body. 


Add to bone broth, hearty soup and stews or drink as a tonic.
