Maternity and Pediatric Patients Benefit From Essential Oils

Community Howard Regional Health of Indiana offer essential oils to their maternity and pediatric patients to "put them at ease" and for comfort (Arnett, A. 2018, January 26). Stacey Pence, the patient care coordinator at Howard's said they were looking for "new ways to improve patient satisfaction with their pain control." Pence added that "pharmacology may fail sometimes" (Arnett, A. 2018, January 26).

Funding  for hospital grade essential oils are from a grant that provides adjunct therapy. The patients receive the essential oils for free.

The nurses that offer essential oils go through a special

Essential Oils In The Maternity Ward
training conducted by a clinical pharmacist. The training includes massage therapy and as well as training in the identification of essential oils functions. Essential oils offered include peppermint, lavender, clary sage, frankinscense and citrus oils. Spence has examples from experiences with patients using essential oils. The program is very new. It was introduced in November 2017.

Mothers-to-be take note. When you plan your maternity leave, buy a pair of maternity leggings, or when you choose a hospital for your child’s birth, there are a lot of options that a  maternity nurse can help you deal with child labor pain. Much like buying a C-Shaped maternity pillow to get a good night’s sleep, there are many natural options that are available to you before and after birth. Before including holistic options during the pregnancy, speak with your doctor. Educate yourself with these options and go over them with your doctor. You may even need to educate your doctor if he does not practice holistic healthcare. Your pregnancy automatically puts you in healthcare’s vulnerable group that includes young children, the elderly, people with chronic illnesses, etc. The communication with your doctor is crucial in your healthcare choices.
