Every pregnancy is different but the one thing they all have in common is that the baby's emotional health is directly affected by the mother's emotional state of being. That's why aromatherapy and essential oils are a key component of any holistic pregnancy, but you need to know which oils are okay to use and which are not. This eBook teaches which essential oils you can safely use to solve the top 5 most common problems pregnant women face, and the best ways to use them with confidence for a smooth transition into motherhood without harming your baby.
Pregnancy can be a wonderful and almost magical time in a woman’s life. It can also be a time of great physical upheaval and emotional challenge. Your hormones are raging out of control, while your body bloats and balloons out as it adjusts to prepare you for the blessed event and your transition into motherhood. Exciting and scary stuff all at the same time! If this is your first pregnancy then you have the extra burden of venturing into uncharted waters –a journey that, if you are lucky may be a smooth sail to the finish line, or a choppy ride full of unexpected twists and turns. While there are countless resources out there to help support you during this journey, it's hard to figure out what or who to listen to if your goal is to have a totally natural or holistic pregnancy. How you define “natural” or “holistic” in the context of your pregnancy is really up to you. Generally speaking it means taking extra care not to expose yourself and your baby to potentially harmful substances or unnecessary stimulants; following a healthy and nutritious diet; using non-toxic personal care and household cleaning products; maintaining a positive and cheerful outlook; staying calm and peaceful even in the face of stressful events; getting enough rest; and avoiding any medications that are not absolutely necessary. That’s a tall order for even the most conscientious of expectant mothers! But if you do nothing else, please do whatever you can to stay calm and peaceful, because your baby's emotional health is directly affected by your emotional state of being. That's why aromatherapy and essential oils are a key component of any holistic pregnancy. I’m going to let you in on a little secret … many of the most common complaints that pregnant women usually have can be addressed and often resolved in totally safe and natural ways using aromatherapy. This book gives you everything you need to know about how to use aromatherapy and essential oils throughout your pregnancy, labor, and beyond, with the confidence of knowing they will help you make a smooth transition into motherhood without harming your baby!
