Partridge Berry is among the best remedies for preparing the uterus and whole body for child birth. Take for some weeks before the child is due, thus ensuring a safe and wonderful birth for both of you. Used also for the relief of painful periods. As an astringent it has been used in the treatment of colitis, especially if there is much mucus. Useful for all forms of nervous feebleness and irritability of a chronic character. Exerts a highly favorable influence over spermatorrhea, especially in combination with the flowers of Althea, Celastrus, and Uva ursi. 

On the mucous membranes it exerts a mild tonic influence, which slowly abates excessive mucous discharges, and has led most herbalists to pronounce it an astringent; but this action is wholly tonic, and may be used for catarrhal and leucorrheal discharges, as well as for chronic dysentery.

Combinations : As parturient to prepare for childbirth it may be used with Raspberry Leaves. For dysmenorrhoea it could be combined with Cramp Bark and Pasque Flower.
