Using Herbs in Pregnancy from a Constitutional Model
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.
