I would highly recommend Herb Lore and www.herblore.com to anyone looking for a knowledgeable resource and supply place for herbal products. I have very little knowledge when it comes to herbs, but as a midwife, I much prefer this natural alternative. All of my questions and concerns were listened to - they were very patient and very helpful. I now keep on hand her Labor Tincture, Placenta Release Tincture, and the Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture. At the very first birth I took these to, we waited for the placenta for quite some time. I finally gave one dose of the Placenta Tincture and not ten minutes later, the placenta came - with no problems and no extra bleeding. I have a lot of clients who refuse any kind of allopathic treatment, and I'm thrilled to have these herbal products on hand and Herb Lore as a knowledgeable resource for those cases when I really need the extra help!

Education and Information
To provide information for our clients so that they know what is most appropriate for their situation, what is safe and what should be avoided, about any drug or herb interactions and any contraindications that may exist, and to know when and how to use an herb or herbal product. We feel it's of utmost importance that clients know what they're using and how to use it correctly.
Important fact: Many herbalists have extensive knowledge about using herbs, but not many are specifically trained in using herbs with pregnant, trying-to-conceive or breastfeeding mothers. This is a whole other realm of herbalism with critical considerations and consequences. Our herbalist, Pam Caldwell, is one of the few herbalists in the country who specializes in this area. She has created this line of organic products with pregnant and breastfeeding moms specifically in mind. She and Herb Lore's products have been a trusted resource by midwives, OB's, Lactation Consultants, pediatricians and other mama/baby care providers for over 20 years.
Client confidentiality and anonymity are always respected and guaranteed.
First Rule of Thumb...
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
This means that the body inherently knows what to do and how to do it. It can conceive, grow, nourish and birth a baby. We just have to trust our bodies - and we CAN trust our bodies. Sometimes they get out of balance, and that's when a gentle herb can help get it back on its path of balance and health again. And this leads us to ...
The Second Rule of Thumb....
"First the word, then the plant, and lastly the knife."
Asclepius of Thessaly, one of the great minds of medicine, 3000 years ago
This means that it's prudent to start with the most gentle course of action first, which would be counseling and information and taking the advice contained therein. If the information and recommended steps aren't enough to produce the desired results, then step up to using plants (herbs). If results are still not seen, then stair-step your way up to the more aggressive means, such as pharmaceuticals or surgery. Using heavy-duty healing modalities such as this as a first course of action is usually not necessary, and can be very hard on the body. EVERY pharmaceutical drug has a side-effect of some kind.
