Botanical Support for Pregnancy and Lactation

This 3 part series will cover botanical support during 3 common stages in a woman’s lifetime. 

The first class, botanical support for menstrual health, will detail the hormonal
influences and changes that happen throughout a woman’s cycle and the common symptoms associated with those changes. Dr. Bennett will give insight for botanical support to ease common complaints.

The second class, botanical support for pregnancy and lactation, will cover which herbs are safe to use while pregnant and nursing and which to avoid. There will be some detail of common complaints as well, but please keep in mind that this is a sacred time in a woman’s life and it is best addressed by seeking individualized care.

The third class, botanical support for menopausal complaints, will address the most common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia; and how to support the transition into becoming post-menopausal.
