Natural Home Remedies for Pregnancy Problems

Pregnancy problems like nausea, mood swings, constipation, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, bloating and cramps can make you uncomfortable. A simple natural remedy for pregnancy complications can take care of your problems. In this article we have included various natural remedies for pregnancy problems.

Aromatherapy oils can help to lessen the uncomfortable problems during pregnancy, such as morning sickness, swollen hands and feet, general aches and pains and fatigue. They can also help you relax and look after your body as it slowly goes through changes.

Fatigue

Try to relax prior to going to bed. Either try a relaxing aromatherapy bath or burn one of the following blends of oil in the room you are in before going off to bed, then take the burner/vaporizer into your bedroom.

1. Camomile and lavender
2. Sandalwood
3. Neroli and ylang-ylang

Morning sickness or nausea

If you are feeling nauseous but not actually vomiting, mix up a blend of two drops each of fennel, lavender and sandalwood oils with 4 fl oz (100 ml) of carrier oil. Massage it into your abdomen at regular intervals during the day and try a little dabbed under your nose so you can inhale it. Inhaling peppermint oil can also relieve morning sickness but I would not advise you to massage with it during pregnancy.

Vomiting

If you are vomiting mix up a blend of two drops each of lemon, fennel and rose oil with 4 fl oz (100 ml) of carrier oil. Gently massage it into your upper and lower abdomen and also inhale it – if you can bear it.

Constipation

Try to relieve your constipation naturally by watching your diet (eat more unrefined food) and increasing your liquid intake. A helpful aromatherapy mixture is three drops of black pepper and three drops of fennel oil in 4 fl oz (100 ml) of carrier oil. Gently massage it along your lower abdomen, starting just inside your right hip bone, work up then across past your navel and back down towards your left hip bone. Be gentle and repeat several times daily.

Difficulty sleeping

Ask your partner to gentle massage your lower back, shoulders and neck with an aromatherapy blend made from three drops of vetivert and three drops of lavender oil in 4 fl oz (100 ml) of a carrier oil. This is a sedative, being claming and relaxing and it has certainly helped me through some sleepless nights.

You can also try drinking camomile tea before going to bed and put a little of the above blend on your pillow.

Fluid retention

Mix two drops of eucalyptus oil, two drops of geranium oil and two drops of lavender oil with 4 fl oz (100 ml) of a light carrier oil. Rub it gently into your lower legs and hands. Massage with firm upward strokes – on your legs from ankle to knee on your arms from hand to elbow. You can also try using the blend in a cool bath.
