After nine months of a beautiful and harmonious pregnancy, the moment when you will hold the love of your life in your arms finally comes. The 38-40 weeks also prepare the woman’s body for the big event, which is experienced individually by each person. There are many benefits using homeopathy during pregnancy, and one of the most frequent question is: How homeopathy can make the delivery easier?
Homeopathic remedies to help through labor
There are many homeopathic remedies to help you manage your labor pain and contractions, medication-free. Cimicifuga (Acteea racemosa), Caulophyllium, Pulsatilla, Aconitum, and Gelsemium will be of great help. If we take a superficial look at the Materia Medica, we will note the following:
Cimicifuga will prevent stiffness of the uterine cervix and will prepare birth canals for an easy delivery.
Caulophyllum is another highly effective remedy in preparation of labor, helping to produce good contractions and prevent the woman from getting tired during delivery. If administering Caulophyllum in the last weeks of pregnancy, while Arnica before the expulsion of fetus, the probability of bruises and bleeding will be minimized.
Pulsatilla is well recommended in overdue pregnancy and one of the most helpful remedy in baby breech position. Pulsatilla is known as a “plant forceps” like Aconitum is a „plant scalpel”.
Gelsemium is highly useful in case of false labor pains. Jasmine, known as homeopathic Gelsemium, is one of the most useful plants for an obstetrician, as it helps to soften and open the uterus.
When labor begins, and the contractions are frequent, but irregular, the parturient is agitated, anxious, fearing she will die during delivery; in this case, Aconitum will calm her down.
If the contractions are painful, originating at the lower back and radiate down, the parturient is exhausted and angry during examination, being over-sensitive to the pain; in that case Chamomilla will bring her relief.
Homeopathy can also help immediately after birthing
In case of an episiotomy or a C-section, Staphysagria can play a major role as it helps the wound heal faster and with no complications.
Post partum, during lactation, contractions and pain in the uterus still persist as the pituitary gland continues to release oxytocin. Usually, these pains disappear shortly after birth. If these pains are felt across the pelvic area, making walking very painful, then Bellis perennis will improve the patient’s state. In case of spasmodic pains, felt across the lower abdomen, especially after a long and tiresome labor, in that case Caulophyllum will bring relief. If the pain radiates towards the upper part, there is a heavy feeling in the lower abdomen, and the pelvic organs are felt as if they are falling down, then Sepia is recommended.
Homeopathy is a mild, eco-friendly and effective medicine; it can be used by pregnant women to have an easy birth. Homeopathic remedies will help the delivery to be as smooth as possible and leave only happy memories. Homeopathy is not just a useful companion for labor and birthing, it also helps with common problems of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and baby’s first year of life.
