Natural Remedies for the Childbearing Year

  My work with expectant and new parents has revealed that many of them are combining the use of traditional medicine with complimentary or alternative therapies like chiropractic care, aromatherapy, massage therapy,  yoga, meditation and herbal remedies, to name a few. This trend toward "combination treatment" is gradually accelerating due to the demand for complementary or alternative care. In fact, 40 percent of 1,035 randomly selected patient survey respondents said they used some form of alternative health care within the past year, according to a report by John A. Astin, PhD, a researcher at Stanford Hospital in Stanford, Calif., in the Journal of the American Medical Association (1998; 279:1548-1553). 

This page was created to  provide basic information on natural remedies during the childbearing year such as herbs and aromatherapy and easy tips for easing some of the discomforts of pregnancy.  It's provided as information only and is not meant to replace your care provider. Please check with your care provider before using any remedy.
