Cascade HealthCare Products carries the book, Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year, by Susun Weed. An excellent, comprehensive and usable guide for everyone involved in women's health care, from pregnant women, and new parents to midwives and childbirth educators. Packed with clear, comforting, and superbly helpful information, Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year contains simple, safe remedies for pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, and newborns.
Beginning with the two months before pregnancy, herbs are listed to provide safe, effective birth control, or to help ensure pregnancy, even in the most difficult of situations. A special list of teratogens, including herbs to avoid before pregnancy, is included, as is a section on herbs to improve the father's fertility and reduce the risk of birth defects. Once pregnancy has occurred, herbs are safe and beneficial allies in reducing the distress of pregnancy, including hemorrhoids, high blood pressure, morning sickness, emotional changes, anemia, muscle cramps, bladder infections, and preclampsia.
Herbs take a starring role in labor and delivery - whether initiating labor, increasing energy, diminishing pain, or staunching postpartum bleeding - and in postpartum care of the mother's perineum, breasts, and emotions, as well as the infant's umbilicus, skin, scalp, digestive system, and immune system. Humorous, tender and detailed, this classic text is supported by illustrations, references, resource lists and tasty recipes.
