When you are experiencing early labour that stops and starts homeopathy will do one of two things.
One – fire up the labour so that it kicks into action. This will mean a rhythm to your labour, a consistent length of time to the contractions and progress.
Two – settle down the stops and starts so that you can sleep and relax until it is really time to do some work.
One positive aspect of a long early labour is that your body is doing the early work over a period of time. If you are able to rest, eat, drink and not be too preoccupied by the contractions it isn’t a bad way to go. The 1-3 cm dilation is usually the longest, slowest part of labour.
Remedies will move this phase along so that you can count on the contractions you are feeling to be productive – creating dilation and getting one step closer to your birth. Some of the most useful remedies at this time are :
- Pulsatilla 200C
- Cimicifuga 30C
- Caulophyllum 30C
- Gelsemium 200C
All of these remedies have the ability to augment labour – ONCE contractions are happening. You will only need one of these remedies.
