Aconite 1M is a remedy for fear, panic attacks and the feeling of “I almost died!”

Why would a newborn need such a remedy?

A new baby may need this remedy to counteract emotions that were provoked either during the pregnancy, birth experience or in the postpartum.  Some situations that could provoke these feelings include;

  • “high risk pregnancy” – this language informs the baby and the family that there is a risk to the life of the baby and that the potential for danger exists.  There are usually more ultrasounds, more tests and more fearful appointments.  These things promote the feeling of fear and anticipation of the birth and what might be wrong.  The baby is aware of all of this.
  • threats during pregnancy – the mother may be under physical or emotional stress such as abuse, poor living conditions, shame, fear of survival, uncertain care for the birth or post traumatic stress.
  • during birth babies are reactive and aware of what is happening, heart tones are indicators of the emotional state of the baby and mothers that are frightened have frightened babies.  Unfortunately the remedy for this is rarely to help the mother center herself and breathe, it is usually to inform her that the baby is not doing well! we need to do something! The increase in fear usually impacts the baby in a negative sense and the whole experience of fear takes on more momentum.
  • physical trauma during birth such as forceps, vacuum extraction, cesarean birth, deep suction or resuscitation can all create fear in a newborn.  Usually no one is explaining anything to them about the sensations they are experiencing and it doesn’t take much imagination to understand how this might be viewed as painful, abrupt and frightening.
  • separating a baby from his/her parents is a huge factor and one that is minimized in regular hospital care.  The presence of a familiar voice, touch and energy of a parent has a large impact on the feeling of safety and security for a baby.  If the baby is able to be relaxed and focus on their intuitive cues all systems work better – nursing, digestion, sleep! Introducing stress and separation in those first hours of life is extremely disruptive to many factors while making the transition to the outer world.

Fortunately for all of these situations Aconite 1M can close the gap.  The combination of honest, emotional conversation with your baby and giving them Aconite 1M will resolve these fears, keep them firmly in the past and assist everyone is moving forward.  For specific information on how to use Aconite for yourself and your baby please visit my website – http://www.pipermartin.com and treat yourself to a consult.

The Basics – Homeopathy and your Newborn Babe

Homeopathy is safe for babies.  

Use homeopathy to help your baby make a smooth transition.  Remedies can assist with:

  • traumatic births – forceps, vacuum and c-sections all have an effect on the baby.  Simple remedies like Arnica and Aconite are incredibly effective for soothing head trauma, bruising, shock and fear.
  • breastfeeding challenges – homeopathy will address milk flow issues, mastitis, latching difficulties and failure to thrive in babes.
  • skin ailments – use homeopathy to ease the way through diaper rashes, eczema and cradle cap.
  • discharge from the eyes – breast milk is the most amazing medicine you have right at hand for this – but if you need a little extra support then homeopathy works beautifully to help babies move mucus from their eyes, out through their nose.

Using homeopathy from the beginning keeps your baby clear on how capable their bodies are.  Babies respond quickly and easily to homeopathic remedies, they are easy to administer and it is magical to watch the effect.  There are no side effects and you can feel good about addressing not only physical aspects of your babe but supporting them mentally/emotionally from the start.
