Homeopathy, Helping A Baby In Breech Position

This is a happy story.

Along with doing other forms of medicine, homeopathy was helpful in turning a baby that was in a breech position, and resulting in a normal, vaginal delivery.

A Happy Story

A woman, who I had met in one of my classes, was pregnant with her second child. Her first child had been in breech position, and did not turn before delivery. A c-section was done. With this present pregnancy, the mother did not want to have another c-section, for many reasons.

The mother contacted me about a month after the class, and said that this baby was in breech infantposition. She wanted to do homeopathy to help. She had done some reading, and mentioned the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, which often can be helpful when a baby is in breech position.

I suggested she come in for an appointment, and let’s see if Pulsatilla fits her (is similar to her), or possibly another homeopathic remedy would be better. She was very much in a Pulsatilla state.  And we did use Pulsatilla. The baby did not turn.

Several weeks after this, she had scheduled an appointment with her doctor to do a hands on manipulation to help turn the baby. The manipulation was with one hand on the head of the baby, and another hand on the bottom. There is a 50% chance that the baby will turn. The mother told me she had taken Arnica montana to help if she experienced any bruising or soreness from when the baby turned inside of her.

The baby turned after the first manipulation, (I think they were going to do 3, and then wait a week and try again.) and was in the correct downward facing position. I found out later that the baby stayed in this position, and did not turn back. The birth was a vaginal delivery and was quick. Both mother and baby were, and are doing well.

I had said to the mother when we met for the appointment that using Pulsatilla would be helpful for the birth, even if the baby did not turn. The baby did turn though. Even though the baby did not turn when we had used the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, I think it helped in turning the baby when the doctor did the manipulation. And it also helped in keeping the baby in the downward position, ready for birth.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy can very much be part of a mother’s and baby’s care during pregnancy, delivery and post-partum. I suggest seeing a homeopathic practitioner, a homeopath, and not to self treat. With this mother, there was a specific way the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla was used, in terms of how often, and the potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. As with any care that we receive, it is important to have the practitioner manage the case, and to do follow up appointments with the practitioner. This includes when seeing your homeopath.

Hormonal Changes – Women, Men And Children

Homeopathy can be very helpful for health issues resulting from hormonal imbalances. Our physical body, our mental/emotional selves, and our spiritual selves all make up our totality as a person, and our influenced by our hormonal system.

In today’s world, our endocrine system is being constantly compromised in its ability to function.  We are experiencing more health issues than we did 20 – 40 years ago. There are more chemicals in our foods, our air, the cosmetic products we use, our cleaning products, our gardening products, our medications and more.

Hormonal changes are also normal. They are part of our life cycle. And we do change in changeour lives as we live. It is when we get stuck in these changes, and continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms that we may need help.

Women, Men and Children

Hormonal imbalances affect women, men, and children.

Some of what women may be experiencing:

  • difficulty with their menses – too long, heavy bleeding, no menses, cramps, depression.
  • menopausal symptoms – hot flushes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, memory loss, weight gain, a loss of sense of self, anxiety and depression, vaginal dryness
  • fertility problems
  • symptoms from using contraception pills, HRT
  • not well after giving birth
  • postpartum depression
  • hypo and hyper thyroid conditions
  • fatigue and tiredness
  • weight gain or loss
  • sleeping difficulties
  • loss of hair, hair in undesired areas
  • chronic fatigue
  • PTSD – adrenal gland (people mention “adrenal fatigue” a lot lately)

With hormonal changes, we often just think of women experiencing this. Men too experience hormonal changes. I have read recently that the word “manopause” is used to describe the changes men are experiencing during their 50’s and 60’s. Some of these changes could be:

  • having no energy, lack of motivation or drive
  • difficulty sleeping – falling asleep, staying asleep
  • hair loss/too much hair in undesired areas
  • depression/anxiety
  • loss of libido
  • gaining of weight
  • hypo or hyper thyroid conditions
  • PTSD

And children too.

  • difficulty sleeping
  • behavior issues like ADD and ADHD
  • acne
  • late or early start of menses
  • issues during puberty
  • body image
  • autism
  • PTSD

Help In Healing

In addition to seeing one’s doctor, a naturopath, an acupuncturist, a herbalist or other health/medical practitioner, a practitioner of homeopathy (a homeopath) can be very helpful in healing when someone is experiencing hormonal changes.
