On my website I offer an e-book~ The Homeopathic Guide to a Vibrant Pregnancy in which I include my full postpartum kit regime. This is a series of remedies to take in the week following your birth and will support with the following:
- lighten the intensity and amount of bleeding you experience after birth
- heal any and all bruising, tearing and cutting of your perineum
- eliminate or reduce the need to take pain medications such as Tylenol
- support healing from Cesarean birth, forceps birth, lingering effects of epidural, hemorrhage and shock.
The remedies I suggest you take the week following your birth are:
Arnica 200C – shock, bleeding and bruising
Bellis 200C – bruising to soft tissues – breasts, internal organs – especially useful with surgical births
Hypericum 200C – for healing of nerve sensitive areas such as the perineum or spinal cord
Calendula tincture – to be used in a peri bottle or taken with water.
Staphysagria 200C – a specific remedy for Cesarean births – helpful in many, many ways.
To get the specifics on dosage and timing please visit my website and my on-line e-book – http://www.pipermartin.com. These remedies will not create any interference with breastfeeding, are perfectly safe for mothers and babies and will not be contraindicated with any other medications. How perfect is that!
