Hello! I recently found out I am going to have my first child. I am worried about the effects of cigarettes on my little one and would like to quit as soon as possible. Does anyone have any ideas on herbal supplements I can take that are suitable for the first trimester and second trimesters and that will help alleviate stress and cravings? I am also open to suggestions for teas, aromatherapy, dietary changes, asanas, massage and accupuncture. Thank you for any help you can offer. Namaste.

Talk to your doctor or you may end up using HS that are just as dangerous as smoking ciggies.

This expensive medical system is a failure.
The body need 60 minerals,16 vitamins 12 amino acids and 3 fatty acids to grow.
When a pregnant women gets a craving for food other than what she normally eats it is a sign of a mineral deficiency.
The deficiency of zinc alone can cause birth defects.

Chew gum, throw things or yell at your husband, anything is better than taking that stuff, it could harm your baby. See a doctor.

I was having leg cramps with my second child and the doctor didn't want to give me more calcium than what I was taking because it could harm the baby.
