Herbal Allies for pregnancy, birth and postpartum

from October 2020 at Salema EcoCamp

In this workshop, offered as part of the scope of the Maternata retreat, we'll discuss simple, effective, natural ways to prevent and treat several common conditions that can occur during pregnancy and the post-partum period. As well as sharing practical tips about optimal self-care, Poppy draws on her years of clinical experience as a medical herbalist to delve into specific issues such as thyroid health, gestational diabetes and postpartum depression, and shares expert advice about how to be the best advocate for your health, and the health of your baby, during this critical period. You’ll learn about a selection of useful herbs and how to prepare these at home, whether as teas, tinctures, salves, oils or steam baths. During the workshop we’ll also make some general supportive remedies for pregnancy, birth and postpartum perineal care, so that each couple goes home with a ready-made toolkit up their sleeve. The remedies we prepare in the workshop are included in the price, with other herbs and powders available for purchase separately.

I attended Poppy's herbal workshop and it was exceptional. Poppy laid out the information clearly and the material was fascinating - apparently she was a teacher previously and it really shows. I learned so much! I fully recommend the workshops.
