Abstract:

ADHD impacts 1/30 females, and stimulants are among the most commonly prescribed medications during pregnancy, with an estimated 1% exposure prevalence. Research on ADHD and pregnancy is emerging and imperfect but shows that there are risks to the birther and fetus. Midwives need to be aware of the impacts of ADHD on pregnancy, and the risks and benefits of medication during pregnancy and lactation. Midwives, particularly those working in the continuity of care model, are well positioned to offer education and referrals regarding non-pharmaceutical supports and strategies for managing ADHD in pregnancy.

Abstract:

Midwives have the unique experience of continuous and regular care for 6-10 months of a woman's life. We become a trusted resource and a fountain of knowledge for emerging parents. Midwives often pride themselves in low intervention and “natural” ways of healing and promoting physiologic birth. Herbal medicine is a large part of this work. Using supportive and holistic remedies, like plant-based teas, tinctures and food choices, midwives can direct clients to prevention and early “treatment” of minor illness and common complaints of pregnancy. Unfortunately, many midwives have limited knowledge of why certain herbs are used, why they work, or when to properly apply the herbs. In my discussion, you will gain a basic foundation of what constitutional herbalism is and why certain herbs affect a body process or body system and learn how to ‘naturally’ apply our knowledge of commonly used/referred to herbs and supplements.
