Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils (EO’s) to enhance psychological and physical well-being.
Essential oils are the fragrant essence of a plant. These highly concentrated liquid oils are the foundation of aromatherapy, which is based on the idea that the aromatic oil from a plant has healing properties.
The oils are not only aromatic, but are specifically used for health and wellness… for both mama and baby. Ask your birth doula what EO’s they use during pregnancy , labor, and postpartum, as an effective method of relieving stress, promoting relaxation, preventing nausea, assisting with lactation, mastitis, or to anoint a newborn babe. Aromatherapy is a simple, effective method of providing health, wellness and comfort measures to a laboring mama.
To learn about Essential Oils used in pregnancy, labor and postpartum talk with your birth doula.
