Through every one of my 7 pregnancies, I’ve used aromatherapy oils to some degree. But as there as safety concerns about their use during this delicate time, many women avoid aromatherapy in pregnancy due to lack of knowledge of which are safe.

So in this interview, Heket and I will be discussing:

  • Her Story
  • Are essential oils safe and effective?
  • Can you take oils internally?
  • Top safe oils for pregnancy
  • What symptoms can oils help
  • Difference between high and low quality oils

  • & more!!!

How I felt about my body after 7 pregnancies

Greetings lovelies!!!

Over on my Instagram page and Facebook group from black women called MAWA, i’ve been asking some questions about life as a sista and the responses have been so very interesting.

So that you can get to know a bit more about me and my journey, I’ll be answering some of these questions too, the first of which is:

Did you care how quickly you popped back after pregnancy?

This was in response to the news around women feeling pressure to return to their pre pregnancy weight quickly after their baby was born, as many celebrities were doing it.

In this video I share how I felt about my body throughout my journey of having 7 pregnancies over a 12yr period.

Watch now and enjoy!
