Welcome to my information page where you can find super helpful resources for a natural birth and healthy life.
Resources for Crunchy Moms
Those who are a little crunchy sometimes realize it’s hard to find books or classes or products that fit within our standards for holistic living.
I’m hoping that this little resource page will help you find what you need to have a good, natural birth and live a healthy, holistic life. With resources for birthing well and taking care of your family naturally, whether that is with herbs, homeopathics, essential oils, or what have you, please take a look around and see if you can find something useful.
Natural Birth Resources
This website is an absolute treasure! Gail Tully, a midwife, teaches moms and birth professionals alike about how to achieve an easier birth through fetal positioning. She teaches so many useful exercises and tips for women to utilize during their pregnancies to get that baby in the right position for a fast and smooth birth. Sounds amazing, right? It is!
This is my favorite site to recommend for women across the country to find a doula. Not every doula is listed here, but a lot of them are! It’s a great place to start in your search to find someone to support you during your labor and birth.
Healthy Life Resources
If there’s one thing I am thankful I did early on in my time as a mom, it is that I educated myself about ways to keep my family healthy with natural remedies, especially herbs. In 16 years of parenting, I have rarely needed to visit the doctor for kid’s illnesses because almost everything we’ve dealt with has been treatable with simple natural remedies. The Herbs and Essential Oil Bundle from Ultimate Bundles is a super affordable way to get your hands on a ton of resources to keep your family healthy, including:
- 22 eBooks
- 4 ecourses
- 6 printable packs
- 2 membership sites
You are actually getting 34 products worth $567.48, but you pay less than $50. It’s an incredible deal and one I wouldn’t pass up. And please hurry because this particular bundle disappears on May 31, 2019!
If you feel overwhelmed by the idea of the bundle and are just looking for a straightforward way to learn about how to care for your children and family with natural remedies all in one place, you need Naturally Healthy Babies and Children: A Commonsense Guide to Herbal Remedies, Nutrition, and Health by Aviva Romm. This is the book that I used almost exclusively to treat my kids (and my husband and myself!) when any sickness came along. The book is full of herbal recipes for teas, salves, syrups, and more that will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to care for your family naturally.
“What’s iHerb,” you ask? Why, only my very favorite place to shop online for all things health related. I buy almost all of my supplements and things like healthy snacks, natural soaps, and protein powders from my favorite online health food store, iHerb. I looooove the convenience of shopping from home, the fast & free shipping and great customer service. But what I love most of all is the low, low prices. I get my regular herbs and supplements without a trip to the closest health food store which is a minimum 1 hour trip for me. iHerb is the greatest!
All the brands out there selling essential oils are confusing. I get that. However, after doing some research, I’ve settled on Eden’s Garden as a really good company with great oils at a fantastic price. That’s good enough for me. I love the oils, I’ve gotten and especially love the blends, like Healthy Hero for kids or Meditation for grounded focus. Get yourself some superb oils that won’t cost you an arm and a leg from Edens Garden!
