Essential Oils from Conception to Childbirth and Beyond.
Many women, midwives, aromatherapists, and health practitioners have increasingly turned to essential oils to help alleviate uncomfortable physical symptoms of pregnancy and to improve emotional well-being.
Essential oils have been used for stretch marks, sore breasts, depression, headaches, constipation, emotional stress, exhaustion, hormone regulation, fertility, varicose veins, morning sickness, and many other conditions.
This book takes a unique approach: it focuses not only on the mother and baby but also on the father—on his role in preparing his partner for childbirth and easing her discomforts along the way.
Essential oil recommendations help a man deal with the stress anxiety accompanying his partner's pregnancy, help the woman have a more positive childbearing experience, and help the baby enjoy aromatherapeutic benefits from the very beginning of life.
