Benefits of Calcium Tea:
- Calcium intake reduces the incidence of postpartum hemorrhage. The most common reason for PPH is “uterine atony” or a uterus that won’t contract. Uterine atony leaves blood vessels at the placental site open, allowing bleeding to continue. Adequate calcium intake helps muscles (like the uterus) contract, which assists placental delivery and blood clotting.
- Adequate calcium intake also helps to reduce maternal bone and teeth calcium depletion during pregnancy. If there is not enough calcium in the mom’s diet, the growing baby will pull calcium from the mom’s bones and teeth in order to grow their own. This can lead to an increased maternal risk of lowered bone mass, decreased mechanical strength and osteoporosis. Our bones are also where heavy metals that we’re exposed to (like lead and mercury) are stored. If too much calcium is pulled from our bones in pregnancy, heavy metals are also pulled and released into the maternal blood stream.
