Did your midwife use any holistic or natural alternatives during your pregnancy, L&D?

Probably nothing new but it was new to me... My midwife made Comfrey packs and solution to rinse with after the birth. It really made a difference.

Something else I thought was really cool. The midwives applied olive oil to the baby's bum. This prevents the meconium from sticking to the skin and making wiping easier. I recommend it!

My mw also dampened several momma cloths and rubbed them down with arnica then put them in the fridge for after the baby was born. It was very soothing and helped with swelling.

Homeopathic cord care powder...DS2 cord fell off in 2 days. Awesome stuff. Also calendula essence to add to peri bottle postpartum.

She brewed some kind of awesome herbal tea for soaking and squirting on my ladyparts. It was great! :D
