Physical / Emotional Traits
Angelica Useful in the early stages of pregnancy if prone to miscarriage. Creates a spiritual link with your child.
Bleeding Heart For women who have suffered previous miscarriages or abortions. This clears the reproductive organs of grief or other related emotions from the past which may prevent conception or carrying the child to term. (Also helpful for PPD)
