"After my first baby was born 1 did not
seem to regain my strength although the
doctor gave me a tonic which he consid
ered very superior, but instead cf getting
better I grew weaker every day. My hus
band insisted that 1 take Wine of Cardui
for a week and see what it would do for
me. I did take the medicine and was very
grateful to find my strength and health
slowly returning. In two weeks I was out
of bed and in a month 1 was able to take
up my usual duties. 1 am very enthusi
astic in its praise."
"Wine of Cardui reinforces the organs
of generation for the ordeal of preg
nancy and childbirth. It prevents mis
carriage. No woman who takes Wine
of Cardui need fear the coming of her
chiid. If Mrs: Unrath had taken
Wine of Cardui before her baby came
Bhe -would not have been weakened as
she was. Her rapid recovery should
commend this great remedy to everjr
expectant mother. Wine of Cardui
