Partridgeberry is indigenous to America and the plant's other common name squaw vine is derived from its use by the Native Indians. It may be mentioned that during the final few weeks of pregnancy, women belonging to the Native Indian tribes drank a tea prepared from the leaves of partridgeberry herb with a view to have effortless childbirth. In addition, nursing mothers topically applied a lotion prepared from the partridgeberry leaves onto their breasts to alleviate the tenderness or pain. Early European settlers, especially the English colonists in North America, also used the tea prepared from the herb's leaves to ease childbirth and also as a medication to provide relief from menstrual cramps.
 Early English colonists in North America gave this plant a nickname - squaw vine, as they found that the herb was mostly used by the Native American women for various therapeutic purposes. While partridgeberry is basically used for medicinal purposes, various native tribes of North America also employ this herb for additional purposes, for instance, in the form of a love potion, as a food and also in the form of a ritual smoke. 

Magickal uses include all matters of fertility and childbirth.
