Queen Anne's Lace, or Wild Carrot, is a plant that has been used for centuries as an herbal form of contraceptive. The "Mother of Queen Anne's Lace", Robin Bennett has crafted a couple studies herself on the use of QAL today, and I am attempting to follow in her steps and start a new study. If you are interested in learning more, about participating in the study, have information to share on QAL use, etc. please e-mail me!
Whether or not you can participate in the study, there are other ways to help!
+ Spread the word in mothering groups, birth professional groups, student midwifery groups, doula pages, blogs, etc. and try to recruit potential candidates for the study.
+ Donate to a "supplies donation jar" that will go to purchasing supplies (including the herb/tinctures, TCOYF book, etc.) for those who would like to participate but who are financially in need. **Donation button located below, will redirect you to Paypal**
+ Submit your past experiences with QAL in as much detail as you can (it would be great if you have charts!) to be put on record-- if you wish, they can be added to the book I am writing (anonymously or however you wish to be cited).
+ Do you have any other ideas on how to help or skills you can offer? Send me an e-mail and we'll brainstorm!
I am very excited to get this underway, and hope to have much success. Thank you for reaching out and desiring to take charge of your body, your reproduction, and your health! You are being welcomed into a long lineage of sisterhood and women's knowledge. QAL is not for everyone, but I hope that many women can create an intimate relationship with this special herb.
