The two most common homeopathic remedies used to induce labour are Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum. These are often prescribed by midwives and naturopathic doctors to “prepare” the uterus for labour. Your body has its own system in place to prepare for labour. If you are overdue then you need to find the correct remedy that matches your fear. It is seldom a physical problem that holds women back from birth – it is your head that is interfering with the natural, wise process of your body.
If you can access exactly what your fear is you can shift it with a remedy and glide into labour.
Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum are remedies that are wonderful to augment labour ONCE it is happening. These remedies will encourage contractions once the cervix has started dilating and you are having contractions. I suggest taking them in the following manner:
Cimicifuga 15C or 30C – 2 pellets
allow them to dissolve and then take
Caulophyllum 15C or 30C – 2 pellets
repeat this every 15 min. for one hour so you have taken a total of four doses of each remedy. For specifics on remedies and induction of labour please visit my website and access my e-book – the Homeopathic Guide to a Vibrant Pregnancy.
