Drs Hilal and Manzoor discuss homeopathic remedies traditionally used during pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond.
For example, the following remedies are potentially useful for after the birth:
▪ Aconite: for shock following the fear of the intensity of birth, in yourself, your partner or your baby
▪ Arnica: to relieve soreness, bruising and after-pains. Also helpful for babies who are bruised (from a long labour or a forceps delivery). If you are still sore after three days, take Bellis perennis to help with bruising to deep muscle tissues
▪ Kali phos: for mental exhaustion after delivery, with headache, tiredness but too excited to sleep, especially in the first day or two after the birth
▪ Pulsatilla: post-natal ‘blues’, especially when the milk comes in. You feel utterly miserable and burst into tears at the slightest thing but you feel much better for being comforted.
