Supporting Your Pregnancy
Pregnancy and childbirth are times when your body and health need extra support. Some women experience a happy, symptom free, pregnancy. However many women do experience some symptoms, whether mild or severe.
Nausea & Vomiting
One common complaint is morning sickness. Usually associated with the first three or four months of pregnancy, for some women it can last for most of the nine months. Although called ‘morning’ sickness, it can occur at different times of the day or night, and can range from mild nausea to severe vomiting. Many women simply put up with the symptoms believing that they do not have any options. Homoeopathy offers safe and effective remedies for nausea and vomiting.
Anxiety & Depression
Pregnancy is a time of many changes not only for your body, but also for your emotions. You may experience strong mood swings, or you may start worrying more than usual. And no matter how much you’re looking forward to your baby’s arrival, you may find yourself feeling depressed. Recent estimates indicate that one in five women experience depression during pregnancy. Far too many women accept depression as a part of pregnancy. Homoeopathy can help treat depression, mood swings and anxiety during pregnancy.
Other common complaints that arise during pregnancy which can be treated with homoeopathy include cystitis, thrush, heartburn, constipation, haemorrhoids, oedema, backache, itchy skin, and insomnia.
Childbirth & Postnatal Support
Homoeopathy also offers support during childbirth to help instigate delayed labour or progress slow labour, to manage pain, for exhaustion, and to support emotions such as fear or anxiety during labour. Remedies can also help to promote healing after giving birth. Homoeopathy can also be used to treat postnatal complaints such as; after pains, irregular bleeding, exhaustion, mastitis and depression.
