New Mums and the 4th Trimester

Lots of women turn to Aromatherapy whilst pregnant or preparing for birth, but as

soon as the baby comes, they forget about their essential oils. I think there are many reasons for this, such as the tendency to concentrate on your new bundle of joy and completely forget about yourself ( I am very keen to burst this myth) but I think the main reason is fear. Fear that you may choose an oil that may harm your newborn.

New Mum’s are very protective of their newborns. I know I certainly was! We’re given these tiny humans and all we think about is how am I going to keep them alive? How many new Mum’s have prodded their newborn, or put their ear up to their cute faces, just to make sure they are still breathing. Most times after giving birth we are anxious hot messes of love, doing everything we can and going by the book, even if it is to our own detriment.
