Aromatherapy for Childbirth
Thursday 04 April 2019
This course will be taught by Lindsay Woodman and Jude Davis
Aromatherapy for Childbirth aims to:
Provide theoretical and practical learning to enable midwives, doulas and other birth workers to knowledgably use a limited number of essential oils with clients in a variety of ways. To do so with clear guidance to ensure safe, effective application of aromatherapy within midwifery practice.
Increase the skill base for working on the holistic level with women.
Broaden understanding and women’s access to alternative methods of managing the experience of childbirth.
Enable more women to enjoy positive effects of the application of essential oils, including therapeutic touch. Both of which, applied sensitively and appropriately may enhance relaxation and sense of wellbeing, encourage oxytocin release and possibly boost the potential for normality in childbirth.
Course for Midwives Student Midwives, Doulas, student Doulas Health and Maternity Care Assistants and other birth workers.
The teaching day provides detailed theoretical knowledge of 5 essential oils. A variety of applications will be practiced and discussed including how to safely blend a mixture for massage. Health and safety, legal and ethical issues will be covered. A reference manual will be provided for each student to ensure information is clearly retained regarding all that is taught in the course.
