Most people find themselves looking for a more "natural" alternative to aches & pains during conception, pregnancy, and birth. Learn which herbs and supplements are safe during this time and how to make tinctures, infused oils, creams, and teas. Midwives Chloë Lubell and Shira Moss will share their passion and knowledge about holistically planning a pregnancy, surviving 10 months of pregnancy, and the postpartum period.
Everyone will learn to make and go home with their own:
- Fertility Tea infusion
- Sleep Aid Tincture (safe for the preoccupation period and pregnancy)
- Comfrey & Calendula Infused Oil - for healing & preventing vaginal infections
- Healing Nipple Cream for breast/chestfeeding
While we are making our herbal medicines, you will learn about identifying and charting your fertile signs, how to best support your body through the preconception phase, pregnancy, and the postpartum period, and finding support from your pregnancy provider.
These workshops are for people interested in learning more about themselves and their bodies, as well as doulas, midwives, and any other birth workers looking to expand their knowledge base. LGBTQIAP+ friendly.
