Skullcap,motherwort and flower essences can be nice additions to a postpartum anxiety blend.

Question for Kim...I have a personal affinity for wood betony when anxiety or tension arises. I have not found much on this herb in regards to lactation and pregnancy. Current literature suggests contraindication during Pg due to the possibility of being a mild uterine stimulant, (although I am sure a skilled practitioner may skillfully and safely use it during pg when warranted). It may help improve contractions during labor. It seems to be a lactation category A, compatible w/ Bf but I'd love to have some more info if possible. Do you have any more info on this lovely nervine for Pg and Bf???
