Herbal Medicine in Pregnancy

Mothers to be often reach out for consultations during pregnancy for guidance on optimal health or health issues experienced during pregnancy.  While optimal nutrition is always the best option, there are many herbal remedies which can be considered during pregnancy for various ailments. As education is something which I am an enthusiastic promotor of, I often refer clients to my favorite herbal medicine reference book for pregnancy: The Natural Pregnancy Book: Herbs, Nutrition, and Other Holistic Choices by Aviva Romm.  This book is full of nutrition and herbal medicine recipes, exercises and posture modifications, lifestyle suggestions and herbal medicine guidance for common health issues experienced during pregnancy (from stretch marks to hemorrhoids and vaginal infections to ankle swelling and nausea) there is something here for every expectant mother.
