Aromatherapy - Bergamot
Bergamot in the diffuser! 💚
Highly recommend this one in labour and pregnancy!
Bergamot is uplifting and brings us calmness and clarity. It also smells amazing and is used in high end fragrances and room sprays.
It’s great to use at home during our pregnancy to bring us these positive feelings and for it to become familiar to us. When you then use it in a hospital birth setting, it will disguise the hospital smell which will help us feel safe and like we are at home 🏡💚
This feeling of comfort means you can birth without feeling unsafe. Feeling stressed in labour can lead to adrenaline in our system, which knocks all of our positive birthing hormones out the window!
And you thought bergamot was just a fragrance! 💚
