Aromatherapy in Midwifery
Clinical Aromatherapy. NHS trusts incorporating complementary therapies for patient care need to do so confidently. This is an interesting training organisation of midwifes using massage and aromatherapy led by Denise Tiran. Lavender and Myrhh have widespread traditional use in childbirth. It is not clear from trials whether Lavender can reduce pain perception in childbirth but midwives believe they have found aromatherapy massage can result in less induced labour, less caesarian sections and lower drug use so less damage to mothers in labour as well management of symptoms such as anxiety, headaches and nausea. Baby bath times become a treat not a battle with a drop of lavender in the bath. Nappy rash disappears with use of fresh season jojoba oil resulting in more content babies.
