During pregnancy some women choose to live with the discomfort of minor ailments because they are concerned about the possible side-effects of conventional medicines. However, as only minute amounts of active ingredients are contained in homeopathic remedies, they can be used during pregnancy on the advise of a qualified practitioner. Homeopathic treatment has an excellent safety record and can be used whilst breastfeeding as well as for babies and children.
I have found that homeopathic remedies have a number of uses in labour – helping the mother to stay comfortable and focused, help labour to progress and pain to be manageable. The remedies do not interfere with other strategies and interventions such as TENS, gas & air, epidural. Bespoke childbirth kits can be created based on health concerns or previous labour experiences. I work closely with Teddington Midwives.
Post natal care
Remedies are available topically as well as orally to support healing post-childbirth. Homeopathy can be used in post-natal care for mother and baby on the advise of a qualified practitioner.
