I thought it would be helpful to have a compilation of all those Herbal and homeopathic, natural and Healthy Goodies we love. So please add What Ever you like and what they are used for, what they help with...
For Instance, What type of herbs or teas would or have you added to Sitz Baths? Or to Freeze on Pads for Post Partum?
PLEASE SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH RESCUE REMEDY AS I AM VERY INTERESTED. Where, When, Did you use it?
My Midwife Suggest I take Red Raspberry Leaf tea throughout Pregnancy. I stand by It's effectiveness as a Uterine Toner. With My First Baby I had A Lot of Post Partum Bleeding. But I took RRL Tea with my 2nd starting around 34-35 Weeks and Had VERY LIGHT Bleeding. It was wonderful. Also My Labor was faster as a result of Contractions being more effective I believe.
She Also Suggested Alfalfa Tea for the Vitamin K Later in the Pregnancy. Please Share our Experience with this.
Also, any Natural Tips and Tricks, Like For Instance, I know that it's been said adding 1 Economic Size Bottle Of Hydrogen Peroxide to the wash gets out all the blood from your Birth Linens.
I Have Heard Honey is Good for Tearing 'Down There'. But Isn't that Super Sticky and 'Gooky' Feeling?It's also suppose to be a great source of quick energy especially during labor.
GINGER in all it's forms is really good for Nausea and Digestion, and Circulation too I believe.
Coconut Water (Chlorophyll) is an excellent source of hydration During labor as it's molecules are as close as you can get to human blood before resorting to vampirism!
Please add Yours Everyone!
