Pulsatilla is a remedy that comes up frequently during pregnancy. It has a special affinity
for the female reproduction organs and hormonal system. Pulsatilla is a state which
creates feelings of uncertainty and a gradual understanding that there is level of
commitment needed to create and give birth to a baby.
During labour, Pulsatilla women often take a few days of false labour before committing
to engaging in the contractions and allowing the process of birth to happen. The dilemma
for a Pulsatilla woman is facing the challenge of engaging or escaping. Once that decision
has been made she will work smoothly through labour.
The central fear for women in a Pulsatilla state is being abandoned. This
fear may be aggravated by the following situations:
• Her husband at work when she needs him
• Her midwife going on vacation or even off call
• Her mother unable to be by her side
• Impending separation of her other children when she has to go to the hospital.
In order to ensure that she feels cared for a Pulsatilla woman will be soft and
accommodating to the suggestions of others and suppress her own feelings and desires in
order to be liked and supported.
Fear that the baby will be harmed in some manner during the birth – feels generally
unwilling to take responsibility for making her own choices, usually prefers to ask the
opinions of others and follow their guidance.
This is a big part of the reason she needs all those other people to be present – should she
need advice or guidance. There is a lot of uncertainty in a Pulsatilla state.
• Baby may have been in a breech position at one point during the
pregnancy or moved into many different positions, as if she/he
could not make up their mind.”
