Aromatherapy During Pregnancy: How Essential Oils Can Help Pregnant Moms During Labor & Delivery

Essential oils are wonderful aids for women during labor and delivery. They can be diffused to create a nurturing, relaxing and uplifting environment. Topically, they can bring relief and help in moving labor and delivery forward. 

Keep in mind when selecting essential oils that not all essential oils are equivalent! You want to find the purest, most natural essential oils that are both safe and therapeutically beneficial. The essential oils listed below can be put on topically at your pulse points, especially around the ankles. If you have sensitive skin, dilute them with some fractionated coconut oil or other carrier oil. 

You can also diffuse them. Have several on hand. You might be surprised that your favorite essential oil will change as you progress through your labor and delivery.
