Indications for Remedies
Here are the indications for the remedies included in your Homeopathic Birthing Kit:
Aconite – “for fear and anxiety about birth and labour, restlessness, sudden sinking of strength, intolerable pain with anxiety and pains that are sharp, violent and rapid, and to allay shock. This remedy is also indicated if you have a desire for cold drinks.”(from Francesca’s Naish’s Better Birth and Bonding, 2000)
Arnica – “this remedy can be taken at the ’30c’ potency once a day for approximately three days prior to your expected due date, and is more effective if the pilule is crushed into a powder.. The dose should be repeated at the start of labour, and again just before delivery. This remedy can help to make labour faster and less painful as it helps muscle relaxation. It is indicated if you feel like responding with, ‘Don’t touch me, I’m okay’, when offered help during labour; if you are intolerant of physical examination due to physical sensitivity; if you change position often; if you are quarrelsome and if you feel heat only in your head, with flushing in your face. You should take no more than six doses of the ’30c’ potency remedy.”(from Francesca’s Naish’s Better Birth and Bonding, 2000)
Caulophyllum – “to soften the cervix during labour, or for short irregular and spasmodic pains. This remedy is the homeopathic version of the herb Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum is the herb’s botanical name). It has none of the potential problems of the herb as far as causing early labour is concerned, and can be started at the ’30c’ potency, from the 37th week and taken once a week (on the same day). It will encourage regular and well-spaced contractions, tone the uterus, facilitate delivery and prevent premature labour. This remedy is indicated if you experience fever and thirst, and it’s also useful for painful Braxton-Hicks contractions in the last few weeks of pregnancy.”(from Francesca’s Naish’s Better Birth and Bonding, 2000)
Chamomilla – “for unbearable labour pains, intolerance of strong pain or of touch, or for erratic, spasmodic pains which start in your back and pass down to your inner thighs. This remedy is indicated if you are irritable, fretful, restless, easily distracted, have temper tantrums or desire fresh air and fluids.”(from Francesca’s Naish’s Better Birth and Bonding, 2000)
Cimicifuga – “Cramps in the hips and pains in the back and flying around the abdomen but are ineffectual and the cervix remains rigid. Gloomy, fearful, shivery and feels faint.” (from product insert)
Gelsemium – “to soften the cervix during labour; for extreme anxiety, trembling and nervousness or drowsiness, lassitude and muscular weakness; for dull, heavy pain. This remedy is indicated if anxiety is accompanied by diarrhoea, general shakiness and trembling, or if the pain goes into the back and hips. It’s also good for painful Braxton-Hicks contractions.”(from Francesca’s Naish’s Better Birth and Bonding, 2000)
