I’m currently on my second oily pregnancy – I’ve had the privilege of using essential oils used before, during and after both of my pregnancies!

I share some of the things that helped support my pregnancies during labor & delivery! I’m not a medical professional, just sharing my experiences and best practices, so be sure to talk with your doctor or midwife if you’re unsure about something!

Woohoo! You made it – labor and delivery! Crazy to think that it’s been about 9 months of growing a tiny human that all lead up to this one big event!

First things first, set up your diffuser! Check your hospital’s policy, my hospital said that as long as they don’t “see” it it’s ok and they don’t “see” things in the bathroom.. Here are some of my favorite diffuser blends for the hospital! If you truly cannot have a diffuser set up, put a drop of each oil in to the palms of your hand and inhale or add a couple drops to a washcloth or the pillowcase to smell during labor

Oils & Blends for Labor:

  • Frankincense Touch: apply to areas of tension, use for focus, apply on top of baby’s head and spine for protection and bonding, supports circulation and oxygen transfer in the cells⠀
  • Neroli & Rose Touch: apply to pulse points and over heart to relax and ease anxious feelings⠀
  • Deep Blue oil or rub: apply to your back, legs or any other muscles and joints that are feeling tense or overused during labor
  • Labor Support: 5 Ylang Ylang, 5 Clary Sage, 5 Copaiba, 5 Black Pepper, 4 Helichrysum, 3 Marjoram, 3 Peppermint; combine in a 10 mL roller bottle and top off with FCO, massage into low back and feet as often as needed during early or active labor
