As a Mum of two young children, I can appreciate the worries you may have about your child. Our children are precious, and we want them to have the best possible start and grow into strong, healthy and happy individuals.
After the birth of your baby you need lots of support – here are some natural remedies you can use at home. All of the remedies mentioned here are safe postnatally and while breastfeeding; however, if you have any medical conditions or concerns it is important to consult a qualified herbal practitioner before taking anything.
Giving birth is an incredible feat of nature. Indeed, in evolutionary terms it what women are here to do; the female form is designed expressly for this purpose, and it can be a wonderful, empowering experience. Herbal medicine has been used for centuries to support birthing women, and Sara will use her experience to can construct a natural birthing kit for you to use during birthing.
Breastfeeding is the best thing we can do for our babies – it gives them tailor-made food, full of the exact amounts of proteins for growth, essential fats for brain and nervous system development, immune factors to protect from infection – breastfed babies have fewer chest and ear infections, less diarrhoea and vomiting, a reduced chance of developing eczema and less chance of becoming obese or developing type II diabetes in later life.
Early Years - sara says:
Mandarin essential oil (Citrus reticulata) is a great choice for children, especially when they’re feeling fractious and tired. It calms the nerve and soothes, also helping tummy upsets too. You can burn it in an electric oil burner, which doesn’t require a candle and can be safely left on throughout the night.
Balancing blood sugar is crucial for children – low blood sugar is a major cause of tantrums and poor sleep.
