New Mexico Herbs...Teas, Tinctures & Tisanes
Midwifery and Herbs share an ancient history. Katia has chosen to continue that history in her midwifery practice and has several herbal products available. Katia has been doing herbs since the third grade with her first written report complete with references! She has continued to research, investigate and interview mentors, midwives and herbalist to improve her herbal skills. Currently, she is studying under Clinical Herbalist and RN, Deborah Brandt (From the Ground Up). Katia teaches the herb and homeopathic classes at Maternidad La Luz and Living Tree Midwifery College of Las Cruces.
In February, 2009, Katia began a new business venture connected to All Natural Birth for the herb part of the business.
