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.

Homeopathy Class

Are You Experiencing Lingering Effects From A Trauma?

I have written  about traumas before, and have talked about the use of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana in many of my posts when there has been a trauma.

Recently, when I was with a friend, we were talking about traumas, physical and emotional ones. And that often there can be lingering effects from the trauma, such as a person having chronic pain, flare up of certain symptoms, feeling emotionally  distressed, regressing in behaviors and development, and more.

Traumas

A trauma can be physical and emotional. Some physical traumas can be from surgeries, giving birth, falls, vaccine reactions, accidents, and experiencing a down and outnatural disaster. Some emotional traumas could be the loss of a loved one through death, an illness, or a divorce; the experience of war; the experience of abuse, emotionally and physically; the experience of loss of a job or home; being in a natural disaster; and exposure to toxins in the air, water, soil, or environment.

(I have natural disasters in both categories. We are seeing more of them occurring.)

The person may have sought out help at the time of the trauma or soon afterwards,  and may have also used homeopathy.  The trauma may have been looked at as a first aid situation, looking at taking care of what has happening at that present time. And the help that the person received was beneficial to them. Yet, for some people there may be a lingering from the trauma, showing up in physical symptoms, emotional states of anxiety, fear, sadness or depression, or a feeling of just not being well.  The person may even say, I have not been well since “this” happened.

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on when this (the symptoms or state of not being well) started.  In a way, I am looking for a cause. A cause in the sense that this may be the initiator, the start, to why they are not feeling well.

In My Practice

These are some of the traumas, and lingering states I have seen in my practice:

  • a woman who had two c-sections. A lot of scar tissue developed, and she experienced a lot of pain and discomfort during her menstrual cycle.
  • a concussion from a car accident. The woman experienced vertigo and difficulty focusing and the use of computers was very difficult for her.
  • a woman who was exposed to toxins after being in an area where there had been fires.
  • a boy who had reactions to vaccines.
  • a woman who lost her her husband, and was deeply grieving.
  • a man who hasn’t been well since having the flu.

Healing

In a lot of circumstances, healing takes time. We don’t always want to hear that it takes time. We want to feel better right now.  We don’t like to not feel well.

When we experience a trauma, it may affect us on many levels, and it may also bring up states and feelings we had experienced in the past. We may use different healing modalities to help us, such as homeopathy, message, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, energy body work, therapy, chiropractic, western medicine and more. The healing is a process, and in some ways it can be a deep learning experience about ourselves.
