I was happy to work with a woman over this past year as she went through her pregnancy. She started having homeopathic care before she was pregnant, continued during her pregnancy, and now after the birth of her baby. And I have a good friend who is pregnant, who is also receiving homeopathic care.
So Many Changes
With the women I have worked with during pregnancy, they initially came for homeopathic care before they were pregnant. They came for a specific reason, something that bothered them. They said also, that they were wanting and planning on becoming pregnant very soon, and in a way, they were coming to homeopathy to help get pregnant.
When they did become pregnant, we continued with the homeopathic remedy. As they moved through their pregnancy, other conditions, symptoms, or states came up. When this happened, and the homeopathic remedy that we were using did not help, another homeopathic remedy was given that addressed what the woman was now experiencing.
This happened several times over the course of my patient’s pregnancy; she needed several different homeopathic remedies. And my friend has also said that she too has needed several different homeopathic remedies. As always, the homeopathic remedy is similar to what the person is experiencing. As a woman goes through her pregnancy, the birth, the afterbirth, and being a mom to this new baby, she may need a different homeopathic remedy that fits her state.
These are some of the changes that may be experienced:
- morning sickness – nausea, headache
- becoming sick with a cold, flu, cough
- specific food cravings – sugar, worse from eating sugary foods
- heart palpitations and heart fluterings
- overly sensitive to odors, environment, foods
- unable to get comfortable
- position of the baby
- being very emotional
- exhaustion, and bruising from the birth
- postpartum – depression, overwhelmed, body changes, new responsibilities
Homeopathy Helps The Mother And The Baby
It is a good time for a woman to come to homeopathy before she is pregnant. She is getting care for herself, and creating a healthy “soil” in which the baby will grow. (Homeopathy is helpful for the dad as well before the pregnancy. Same thinking, creating a healthy soil.) And it is good to continue using homeopathy during her pregnancy, and after. It is helping both herself and the baby.
When I work with young children, and older ones too, I ask the mother about her pregnancy – how it was for her; how she felt physically, emotionally, and mentally; was there anything particular going on at the time; how was the birth, and more. I have learned that during a pregnancy, the mother and the baby share the same state. This information about the mother’s pregnancy often helps me to understand a little bit more of what the child is experiencing.
Homeopathy is safe to use when pregnant and when nursing the baby. Homeopathy focuses on the whole person, and addresses the individual. If you or a loved one is pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant soon, I encourage to see how homeopathy can be of help to you and to your future baby.
