Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book expertly guides the reader with specific advice on relieving the small, everyday discomforts of pregnancy . . . safe, gentle remedies, too, are recommended for baby care." (The Herb Quarterly)

"This is one of the best books on aromatherapy I have read. [The author's] basic advice on purchasing, storing, and using essential oils is applicable for anyone interested in aromatherapy for better physical and emotional health." (Peg Aloi, The Herb Companion)

". . . an excellent reference for both mothers-to-be and health professionals serving this population. I will continue to recommend this book for those interested in learning safe ways to use essential oils in caring for new mothers and their babies." (Valerie Cooksley, Massage Magazine, March/April)

"Overall, I liked the aromatherapy content, Allison England's views on pregnancy and birth, and the easy-to-read and reference style-structure of the book. As a childbirth educator, I would recommend this book to pregnant women with confidence." (Mirine Dye, The Blessed Bee, Spring 2002)

Format: Paperback
Many women enter pregnancy with a heightened desire for self-awareness and well being. Allison England has written an informative text, introducing the nurturing and health promoting treatments of aromatherapy and massage for use on mothers to be, and newborn infants.
Through the use of essential oils in baths, massages, and specific treatments, readers will learn how to increase their body awareness, ease the common discomforts of pregnancy and aid in relaxation and pain management throughout labor and delivery.
The sections on postpartum needs, breast-feeding and basic newborn care will ensure this book does not grow old on a shelf. Parents will refer to it again and again for safe and effective remedies.
Illustrated sections on massage for the mother-to-be, and baby, show how to nurture the mother, and calm the infant. They make for an excellent, hands-on tool for partners who want to participate in the birth experience.
All safety issues are clearly spelled out with the pregnant woman and newborn in mind¸ and general education is provided so that the reader can proceed in confidence, knowing which oils to embrace, and which oils to avoid, along with dosage recommendations for pregnancy.
Aromatherapy and Massage for Mother and Baby was written with the goal to help every mother feel her best, and help in facilitating the bonding of the mother and child in a fragrant, gentle way. This book is a "must have" for all pregnant women who want to explore essential oils, and their natural, time-honored potential for enriching their pregnancy and mothering experiences.

Format: Paperback
Aromatherapy and Massage for Mothers is an excellent resource book for any pregnant moms, friends of pregnant women, or massage therapists. I got lots of great ideas for my clients whom I will be doing labor massage for. I wish I had this book when I was pregnant with my children. There are many great ideas on all of the various ailments of a pregnant woman. This is a great book.

Format: Paperback
I found this book at Whole Foods and didn't know if it was worth the price. Went across the street to the library and checked it out. The answer is yes, it is worth the (Amazon) price! It is chock full of information pertaining to aromatherapy and oils that are safe for mom and baby both prenatal and postpartum. I was especially interested in which oils help with the baby blues and this book gives a thorough rundown of those as well as others that relieve pain, give energy, and calm you (or the baby) down. I have to take the library book back, so here I am to buy it. If you are interested in massage and/or aromatherapy, or know a pregnant mom who is, get this book! I wish I would have had it for my first pregnancy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this along with Elaine Stillerman's prenatal book. I am a massage therapist that's trained in prenatal and knew that there were some things that you had to be careful of when massaging a mommy-to-be. Most women love aromatherapy but have to be aware of certain risks when using essential oils during their pregnancy. This book is clear about what to use and what to avoid. Highly recommended.
