Midwives' Medicine Basket

  • Somerville Armory 191 Highland Avenue Somerville, MA, 02143 United States (map)

This Herbal Intensive will explore the energetics of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum, and look at the companion herbs that support wellness during these periods. In addition to general tonics for the first through "fourth" trimesters, Krystina will look at specific pregnancy complications and variations that arise, such as hypertension, varicosities,  pregnancies that go beyond 41 weeks, breech positioning, and others, and offer herbal allies and nutritional recommendations to help keep things within the range of normal. This class is appropriate for midwives, doctors, doulas, and other birth professionals interested in enhancing their knowledge of traditional and alternative approaches to the childbearing year, as well as pregnant people who want to use herbal medicine in their pregnancies safely and wisely.
