Induction is a Parenting Decision

maternity 7

Due Dates are a hot topic on this blog.  I facilitate at least ten homeopathic inductions a week for women all over the world.

How to create a little space to make it your own?

  • If something doesn’t feel right – like a hard deadline for induction, ASK the questions.  Often this can open up whole new avenues to you, but you have to initiate the options, the care providers are not able to offer them to you.
  • Decide you will only work with a care provider that is brave, honest and willing to support you.  Then if that person suggests that you be induced you will be able to take that advice purely.  You have to trust the person who will catch your baby.  Trusting the people you work with would probably eliminate half the inductions going on.
  • Induction is a parenting decision.  Agreeing to or choosing induction will impact the very beginning of your life as a mother to this child.  Induction changes your birth experience and it is quite likely that it will change the immediate postpartum for you and your baby.  Gather information and check in with yourself to figure out what your opinion is on this topic.  Decide how you will navigate it, should it come into your experience.
  • The changes in immediate postpartum influence the bigger picture outcomes of vital experiences such as breastfeeding.  This is why I offer free inductions and I always will – it is a pivotal decision, with far-reaching implications.

If you would like the support of homeopathic induction which acts on not only the physical body but the mental/emotional state please feel free to contact me.

This blog has many articles about homeopathic induction, take a look and I welcome your feedback.

Fire it UP! Dancing in and out of Early Labour……

Some suggestions to fire up a labor

 

Fireworks #1

 

  enough to keep you awake but not intense enough to really get the ball rolling?

MOVE – as much as you are able without exhausting yourself

GET NAKED – with your partner, get some love hormones flowing, massage, cuddle, shower, swim – engage with LOVE.

 

HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES 

 

  • Pulsatilla 200C – this is the remedy when you are not really sure you want to do this….. it is a commitment remedy, helps you declare that you are going forward, having a baby, allowing this babe free passage…
  • Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum 15C – will make those contractions productive.  Take 2 pellets of each every 15min. for 1 hour.
  • Gelsemium 200C – if labor had been moving beautifully and then its as if you get stage fright – the midwives arrive, you go to the hospital, people are watching and expecting something from you and everything slows down.

Gelsemium will kick it back into action.

 

All health food stores will carry these homeopathic remedies.  They are safe for mothers and babes and will not cause a contraindication with any allopathic drugs during the birth experience.

Homeopathic Induction – Live Radio – July 7th – High Noon EST

Induction is one of the most searched for topics on this blog, women are constantly seeking ways to avoid medical induction and start labour naturally.  Homeopathic remedies are extremely effective in doing just this.  The right homeopathic remedy will initiate labour, just as if you had started labour on your own.  It is a gentle, non-invasive way to encourage your body to go into labour.  Supporting women who choose to use homeopathy instead of being medically induced is something I feel very strongly about.  I offer FREE homeopathic induction consultations to anyone who wants it – I have maintained that opportunity for women since I opened my practice 14 years ago and I will always make that service available.  I am currently hosting an on-line radio program on VoiceAmerica – Health and Wellness called The Whole Woman.  This upcoming week on July 7th I will be discussing homeopathic induction.  This show will be all about the mental/emotional states that women are in coming up to their due dates, remedies that I commonly use for induction and how to use homeopathy to induce labour.   You can subscribe to the podcast on i-Tunes by going onto my website – http://www.pipermartin.com or search for The Whole Woman on i-Tunes.

Homeopathic Remedies for Labour/Contractions

IN Active Labour -

I am often asked if there are remedies for pain during labour.  That makes me laugh.  Having a baby is about expansion on every level.  The amount of resistance we offer mirrors the level of pain we experience. 

One of the ways to STOP resisting is to use homeopathy for your birth

There are specific remedies for all the many ways we try to stop, block and inhibit labour.  Who wants to be leaking from every orifice, grunting from some deep primal place, being observed by others who seems quite delighted to be  watching your birth? 

If somehow you could remember that it is all temporary and just ALLOW it to happen, just for a short while you could give birth with ease.  Remedies keep you grounded, present and moving forward. 

Looking for those quick fixes?  take a moment to go inward, discover what your real block is about and then find a remedy to match that block.  The remedy will lift the intensity of the resistance and allow you to go into labour, move through dilation, push a baby out or recover from your birth experience.  Try it, it  works.  To find specific remedy information please visit my website and discover my e-book full of induction and labour information.  www.pipermartin.comThe Homeopathic Guide to a Vibrant Pregnancy.

Induction – What are the remedies to Induce Labour???

Yes, it is possible to induce labour safely using homeopathic medicine.   To use them successfully you must find a remedy that suits your physical, mental and emotional state.  Each remedy has a description which is called a remedy picture.  When you match the remedy picture to your own “picture” it means that you are considering any aspects of your being that are out of proportion – on a mental, emotional or physical level.  

Once you can identify those aspects that are most dynamic in you it is time to figure out a remedy.  Reading remedy descriptions can be challenging as it is hard to be objective about your self, it is best if you are able to see a homeopath to consult with them.  If that is not a possibility for you I have created an on-line e-book which outlines several remedy pictures that are commonly seen in pregnant women.  The Homeopathic Guide to a Vibrant Pregnancy contains not only information on induction but also suggests remedies for morning sickness, iron deficiency, remedies for labour and the postpartum period.  This e-book is available on my website – www.pipermartin.com for $20.00.
