Homeopathic remedies can make the pain of labour productive and facilitate a faster birth by lifting up the intensity of fear. Fear can create a more dynamic sensation of pain both on a physical level through tension, tightening and holding but also mentally/emotionally as it takes on a bigger, more powerful energy then it needs. There are remedies like Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum that accelerate the pace of labour and create contractions that are rhythmical and productive. Other remedies work to relax the mental state so that labour will not be hindered by a fear or anxiety reaction. These are your alternatives to pain medication with regard to homeopathy – the only way out is through!
