Pregnancy and childbirth is a profound and unique time for a woman. It can also be a time of great anxiety and worry for many. Each experience is so different and individual and for some there are many challenges along the way. Homeopathy can help by offering a safe alternative to both mother and child through the journey of pregnancy, childbirth and post-labour care.
The best preparation for a healthy pregnancy is before conception. Homeopathy optimises your health preparing you for pregnancy and can help improve hormone function when there is difficulty conceiving.
During pregnancy homeopathic treatment can help with minor problems such as morning sickness, constipation, heartburn, backache and mood swings. It is important that you contact your doctor or midwife if your symptoms are severe or persistent.
There are many effective remedies that can help deal with possible problems during childbirth such as pain, exhaustion and a slow dilating cervix amongst others.
Healing after the birth
After the birth, your body goes through a series of physical, emotional and hormonal changes. Homeopathy can help rebalance the body on all levels and promote swift healing. For example after-pains, bruising, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep problems and post-natal depression.
