As a midwife of many years, I have been blessed to participate and journey alongside women and witness the miracle of birth.
Women innately know their bodies and know instinctively how to give birth. With the right support and environment a woman can tap into her immense power— the power to surrender, trust and let go in the transition into motherhood.
As a trained homeopath, I have witnessed how homeopathy can help support women throughout pregnancy and childbirth. It is a gentle, deep and effective system of holistic medicine. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy, childbirth and the post natal period. it is excellent for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. It is one of many natural therapies that can enhance your body’s own ability to heal itself.
The remedies are derived mainly from plant and mineral sources. The active ingredient is diluted many times and shaken vigorously to produce the homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy contains nano doses which stimulate your vitality, and help you become more balanced, enabling you to function at your optimum. Unlike conventional medicines, homeopathic remedies are not addictive and have no dangerous side effects. Homeopathy doesn’t interfere with conventional medicine and is ideal to use at times when you might not want to use conventional drugs.
The concept of homeopathy is to treat and understand the whole person, both mentally, emotionally and physically. Each remedy is individually chosen and a single remedy is picked to match your particular symptoms.
Midwifery and homeopathy complement each other. Both treat the whole person. Homeopathy can treat many complaints and discomforts associated with pregnancy.
Both you and your baby can benefit from homeopathy by becoming as healthy as possible during pregnancy. You can give your baby ideal and optimal conditions in which to thrive and develop, and help avoid and prevent future complications as much as possible.
Physical and emotional changes during pregnancy may cause discomforts and minor complaints such as nausea, mild urinary problems, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, indigestion, anemia, varicose veins, leg cramps, back ache, cramps, edema, haemorrhoids, thrush or emotional distress, to name a few…
Homeopathic treatment can successfully turn a breech baby.
A homeopathic remedy that precisely suits your individual character and needs is carefully chosen after a detailed intake session. The remedy chosen reflects the “picture” created after all unique physical, mental and emotional symptoms are recorded and carefully thought-out. Individual symptoms are an expression of inner disharmony and imbalance, homeopathy offers deep, natural, healing.
A healthy balanced pregnancy and birth can prevent unnecessary trauma and suffering.
Birth is a natural, healthy physiological process. Women know how to give birth. Homeopathy can serve as an effective tool to assist women during pregnancy and birth when warranted. Homeopathy can treat preterm (premature) contractions, and can strengthen and regulate irregular and ineffective labor, treat fatigue and exhaustion which can prolong the process of labor and birth.
After birth, homeopathy can assist in healing, relieve pain, reduce bleeding and cramps. Homeopathy can be very effective for women who suffer from insomnia.
Homeopathy can successfully treat difficulties at the beginning of breastfeeding, such as engorgement, inflammation, sore, cracked nipples, and decreased milk supply.
Homeopathic remedies are free from any toxic substances and therefore are optimal for pregnant women, breastfeeding and newborn babies. Colic, teething, ear infections are common ailments and can be successfully treated with homeopathy. Homeopathy offers effective treatment without the side effects of many conventional medicines. Relieving and curing discomforts and complaints in pregnancy, birth, babies and young children can prevent future health issues.
Homeopathy runs alongside my practice as a midwife and offers a nourishing, healing alternative to supporting my clients during pregnancy, childbirth and after the birth of their babies.
