It is becoming more and more common to experience difficulties with conception. The causes of infertility are many: from stressful lifestyles leaving couples longer to get pregnant to a range of diagnosed conditions, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, uterine fibroids or endometriosis. All these make conception potentially very difficult. However, homeopathy can help treat not only physical imbalances but also the emotional issues involved. It addresses the root causes of problems and can help to bring the person back into balance, both physically and emotionally. Homeopathy can have a profound effect on hormone production and balance, and therefore regulating period problems ( i.e. too heavy or too light periods and/or painful or irregular periods), sperm count, production and motility. It also addresses any stress and anxiety that evolve from it.
There are numerous complaints that women can experience during pregnancy, such as nausea and vomiting, heartburn, swollen legs and ankles, cystitis, thrush, varicose veins, constipation and piles, to name just a few. All these problems and other potentially complicated symptoms, such as raised blood pressure, may be helped by professional homeopathic treatment.
Some women also experience anxiety and other emotional symptoms whilst pregnant. This can be due to huge hormonal changes but there might be other concerns too, such as readiness for motherhood, ability to cope with a new baby, fear of miscarriage, etc.
As a holistic medicine, homeopathy treats you as a whole person, looking at your health from physical, mental and emotional perspectives. It can, therefore, provide invaluable support as you progress through each trimester of your pregnancy and prepare you for the birth of your child.
Childbirth & post-natal period
Homeopathy can help with many aspects of labour and birth, such as reducing fear and anxiety, offering pain relief, reducing the need for synthetic pain relief, helping to start contractions in overdue labour or to establish regular contractions in delayed or ‘stuck’ labour. It can also help to improve stamina and raise flagging energy.
After birth, homeopathy can speed up recovery from birth, provide post-partum healing, encourage good milk flow, help with any breastfeeding problems, relieve symptoms of mastitis, help with post-natal depression and much more.
Homeopathy is so gentle that it is also suitable for babies. It can be very helpful with infant colic, sleep disturbances, teething, weaning problems, nappy rash, any childhood illnesses, night terrors and developmental problems.
Homeopathy can be truly amazing at enabling women to heal themselves both physically and emotionally after childbirth.
