Calming and Balancing
• Support a healthy pregnancy
• Support on-time delivery
During the first 13 weeks, about 20% of pregnancies end in loss. C & B Formula is a wonderful combination of the herbs traditionally used to support pregnancy.
Not intended as a daily preventative, use only as needed.
Black Haw bark (Viburnum prunifolium) : Black haw is an important uterine antispasmodic, giving it the ability to relax smooth muscle providing cramp relief.
Cramp bark (Viburnum opulus) : This bark contains several compounds found to support health; Ellagic acid provides antioxidant benefits, and esculetin and viopudial are known to be antispasmodic, lending to the herb's common name, "cramp bark."
False Unicorn root (Chamaelirium luteum) : This herb is prized by herbalists to balance hormones and enhance uterine health. It may provide support and comfort during menstruation, as well as encourage and on-time labor and delivery. False Unicorn root has a normalizing effect on the ovaries and may support healthy fluid balance in late-term pregnancy.
Passionflower leaf (Passiflora incarnata) : Passionflower appears to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain. This compound helps to lower brain activity helping you to relax and potentially sleep better. It may also help to support the central nervous system and bring on a sense of calm.
Wild Yam root (Dioscorea villosa)
While cramping and/or spotting: Take 3 droppers every 2-3 hours, for up to 12 hours. Then take 2 droppers (1/4 tsp) every 4 hours once the cramping and spotting lessens.
For continuous spotting and cramping: take 2 droppers 1-3 times daily for 10 days; then try to slowly decrease the doses and be off of it within a week.
Caution: C & B formula is designed to be used only by women who are pregnant, and only while cramping or spotting. It is not designed to take continuously, except in cases where mom tends to deliver early. In this case, start taking C&B Formula 2 weeks before mom generally delivers (i.e. if mom generally delivers at 32 weeks, start taking C&B Formula at 30 weeks) to help maintain the pregnancy to term.
Always remember to discuss supplements with your health care provider prior to use.
