Herbal Pregnancy Support

Deep Roots CSA

During pregnancy, it can be quite challenging to take care of yourself. With all the symptoms raging and not much relief in sight, it’s hard not to get discouraged. Nausea, heartburn, mood swings, dietary needs, body aches and pains, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and baby prep can be really overwhelming.  This of course in addition to our regular daily lives which carry the demands of time and energy.

As an herbalist, I took each symptom of my pregnancy as a personal challenge. I found success most of the time; sometimes I just achieved symptom management, but I was able through my herbal and nutritional tool kit to ease this wonderful right of passage towards Motherhood.  To walk more on grass instead of gravel. I was so very grateful for this opportunity to combine my training as an herbalist with the experience of pregnancy.  To be my own subjective and objective “test subject”.  My baby was born this month, and as I birthed my own child, the Pregnancy Community Supported Apothecary was birthed as well.

I wanted to provide women with uncomplicated support. Something that they knew would help manage their symptoms or even be curative for the aches, pains and challenges of pregnancy. Something that they could stand behind and feel good about without the stress or research required. I wanted this to be a gift for Mothers, not just a present, but something they felt really helped them through the process of becoming Mothers mentally, physically, spiritually.

The Pregnancy CSA (Community Supported Apothecary) is just that!

So, logically the PCSA has four parts that are delivered at the appropriate stage of pregnancy. First, second, third, and “fourth” trimesters that each provide you with herbal formulations that are nourishing and combat the symptoms of each trimester.

All kits contain information about each formula, tea, or salve provided, resources for supplementation and symptom control through lifestyle, information about what’s happening to your body, best snack food, resource list for Birmingham doulas, placental encapsulation, prenatal and postnatal care as well as birth photographers, nursery interior designers, and prenatal exercise resources.
