About the Author
Stephanie McBride is a passionate advocate for the use of Essential Oils as a form of natural self-care and in clinical practice, from the moment of conception onwards. Her primary focus on botanical medicine studies, coupled with practical experience as a certified clinical herbalist, professional aromatherapist, and functional nutritionist, have given her the in-depth knowledge necessary to simplify this ancient health modality for others to enjoy. And, most importantly, she is a mother of three!
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Stephanie over the years through our initial interaction through a networking group called Community Inspired Professionals. At that time, Stephanie was a nutritionist and herbalist and I was fascinated by her work with moms and babies. My work as a naturopathic physician resonated with Stephanie thus leading to a long friendship of sharing ideas and stories to help our patients...
I feel Stephanie has done a wonderful job weaving the stories and the remedies well together without overwhelming the reader. The information is laid out well for every segment of a woman’s life from preconception to birth to postpartum and tidbits of infant care support.
For providers, I feel this is a great resource to give their patients a basic guide for home care education.
I hope you enjoy reading this guide as much as I have!
Yours in Health,
Dr. Jill Ghormley, ND, MAMS Naturopathic Physician
