Guide to Pregnancy childbirth and after…

When a baby is on the way there is a lot of planning to do. From everything to buy, everything to arrange and getting everything ready for the arrival it can be hard to remember to take care of the most important thing in your babies life. You.

Taking care of yourself at this amazing time is vital. Our bodies are changing and our baby is growing. It is perfectly normal to feel different. Being tired, not feeling yourself can take it’s toll and sometimes you need a little help.

Dr Edward Bach, a British homeopath, surgeon, pathologist and bacteriologist discovered a way to help, in the 1920’s and 30’s. A system of 38 flower remedies that help us live emotionally balanced lives. Our emotions can get in our way such as, anxiety, despondency, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity to influences and ideas, insufficient interest in present circumstances and over care for the welfare of others. Bach original Flower Remedies can help with these emotions.

As a Bach Flower Register Practitioner I work under the Bach Foundation Code of Practice, which sets out the standards expected of professional practitioners and provides a safe framework for practitioners and clients.

Being a Bach Flower Practitioner from the Bach Centre’s International Register of Practitioners means that I have followed an approved programme of education and assessments to ensure that I am competent to use the remedies in professional practice.

The Bach Flower Consultation

I am a Bach Flower Practitioner and I asses your needs as the client based on their current emotions and concerns. Our first consultation will last 60minutes and follow up consultations will last 30 minutes. I will then prepare a unique mixture combining up to seven flower remedies. I make the remedy by adding two dropa of each essence to spring water in a 30ml bottle. Progress will be monitored weekly or monthly. The remedy is adjusted according to changes that have occurred during the period. When your emotions are back into balance the remedies may be stopped.

How to take the Bach Flower Remedies

It is suggested to take 4 drops 4 times a day orally. They can be taken with water or any other beverage. Taking a larger dose at one time will not have a stronger effect, but you can take more frequent doses during a crisis to help you through it.
