Online Consults – for Induction, Labour and Postpartum Care

set your life on fire

Hello Everyone,

I just had the feeling that I needed to update all the homeopathy connections out there that I am offering online consults from deep in the coastal mountains!

If you are interested in using homeopathy for induction of labour,  I offer free consults for all inductions, with no exclusions.  Everywhere, all over the world, this is available to all women.  We connect via email and talk back and forth until we land on the remedy for you.  I will help you figure out where to get it and guide you through the process.  It is safe, free and available to you.

I am always happy to work with all pregnant women, anyone who wishes to find out their constitutional remedy during pregnancy has excellent timing.  The unique element of homeopathy is that it addresses the mental/emotional realm. So not only can it impact your physical symptoms, but it can uplift your emotional state. This serves to contribute to the well-being you will feel. A constitutional remedy is also the best remedy to use to induce labour.  Knowledge of that remedy also opens up the information regarding which remedies you might specifically want in a birth kit and what you  may need in the postpartum.

Constitutional care is offered online, via email.  I will send you a series of questions to begin the conversation and we will work back and forth to establish this specific remedy for you and your body.  The initial consult includes a month of follow-up care.

Postpartum care via email is very accessible.  You do not need to be a former patient, anyone is welcome to communicate at any point in their experience.  Online care means no waiting for answers which often feel urgent in this period of time. I have 20 years of experience treating newborns with homeopathy and feel comfortable consulting for nursing concerns and all newborn postpartum challenges.

The perfect time to give birth

trust the timing of your life

 

  If a woman has been able to create and grow a baby,  it is reasonable to assume that she will also be able to give birth “on time”? 

It’s difficult to drop a topic such as due dates that has so much momentum,  but one way to do this is to choose something equally dynamic to focus on.  How about the idea that you have perfect timing?  That things fall into place – the right feeling person is on call, that the traffic lights are all green, that you and your partner are rested and ready for action, and that your new little babe also has a sense of perfect timing.

I can’t help but consider the perception of the baby through an induction.

Create a general statement that is reassuring to you and your baby with regard to the idea of a due date.  Something such as; I know this will all unfold perfectly, I will know by the ease and flow that my timing is excellent, I can trust that this baby will give me a signal when he/she is ready to make their transition into this outer world.  …

It is just as possible to believe in these statements and ideas as it is to believe in the feeling of running out of time, deadlines, due dates and the general bad feeling of being late.  If you find yourself worrying about or talking about a due date, go to these statements for soothing.  You will know by the relief your body feels when you think those thoughts that you are on the right path.

This type of thinking is what I offer along with a suggestion for a homeopathic remedy to lift off fear and allow more freedom within the body and the mind.

Why Acute illness is GOOD, really, really GOOD.

Imagine you are a little kid that spends much of your time in the company of your family, in your familiar home and in a routine that is built mainly around you.  To make the transition to a daycare or school requires all kinds of new neurological pathways to evolve and as this happens, children get sick.

Every sight, smell and sensation is unknown in this environment – new care providers, new companions, new food, new touch, new rules, new pace, new ideas –

Children do not mentally hold their stress, they are experts at discharging and will blow all that overload out via mucus, fever, skin rashes, vomit, diarrhea, sweat.  They let it go physically as they adapt and thrive mentally/emotionally.  You can try to ease these transitions in all the ways you know how,  but there is just inevitably growth.  Growth and change are reflected in the body and as parents you need ways of allowing it.

Homeopathy allows the change, supports the mental/emotional expansion and does not suppress the discharge.  Think of all the suppressants we use on ourselves and our children – in the form of creams, ointments, deodorants and decongestants.  If we allowed our bodies to just do what they are inclined to do – would our level of health change?

You can model this way of being in your body to your kids – take time off when you feel ill, offer yourself comfort and enjoy the mental/emotional relief of having some time to integrate fresh experiences.  Use homeopathy if you feel the illness is out of proportion or stuck in a particular phase.

I offer online and in person consultations and free homeopathic inductions.  Please visit my website to access my services – http://www.pipermartin.com

The Monthly Cycle of Self-Care

new pms cycle

For the past several years I have encouraged patients to make notes on a weekly basis of what is happening for them during their cycle.  We tend to pay lots of attention to PMS symptoms because they are often negative and feel out of control but there is  much more to it then that!

You will start to notice as the patterns evolve that each week of your cycle is unique.  Some weeks you will feel social, energetic and full of engagement with the world.

Other weeks you may feel inward and creative and contemplative.

If you start to be specific in how you schedule yourself around your cycle you may feel more at ease.  The first step is to identify how you feel in each week.  Next take the time to think about how you want to play with that – exercise when your energy levels are highest, socialize when you feel your most outward, stock up on good books and art supplies when you are inward.

This is real self-care.

Teach your daughters.

much love

Take two and wait, observe and you will know if you need to repeat.
