I carried and gave birth to my son, and cared for all his baby needs without any allopathic drugs.
The big part of pregnancy, birthing and post-partum recovery, is having enough good oil in your diet.
After that, comes herbal support. My Herbal Medicine for Pre and Post Natal, Labor & Birthing Support usually has Vervain, Rosehips, St. Mary’s Thistle, Yarrow, Saw Palmetto, Cactus, Black Cohosh, Agnus Castus . I add other herbs depending on the mother’s needs – often using the good old combination of Pulsatilla and Phytolacca for uterine relaxation and lymphatic stimulation.
Vervain is for nervous support.
Rosehips is for vital energy.
St. Mary’s Thistle helps the mother’s liver deal with the rushes of hormones flooding her body through the birth process.
Yarrow supports tissue healing and recovery as well supports the cessation of heavy bleeding.
Saw Palmetto supports the heart, the uterus and the muscles all over the body is recovering from the strain of giving birth.
Cactus is a wonderful nervine to maintain calm through it all. I don’t know why mothers aren’t given more HEART and CARDIAC support, when so much about birth – I would say everything – is about the heart.
Black Cohosh is pure immediate strength for a uterus at its most strenuous time of life.
Agnus Castus helps maintain hormonal calm through what can be a turbulent time.
For emergency use – the painkiller herbs White Willow Bark, Ruta (for tearing pain), St. John’s Wort should be at hand, as should a powerful pain relieving oil – these same herbs in an oil will do a good job.
