alongside your orthodox medical care
as in the treatment of chronic disease, homeopathy is there to support the patient in whatever birth choices they feel most
comfortable with. This will range from a purely homeopathic approach to a more integrative form of healthcare combining the
benefits of homeopathy with orthodox medical care.
I can offer you
Treatment for any problems that may arise before, during or after pregnancy and
support through the delivery itself.
If you opt to have your
baby at home I can be on-call between agreed times to attend when you are ready and stay with you for the duration of labour.
also have experience of working within a hospital environment if this is where you wish your baby to be born.
I recommend that people choosing to receive homeopathic treatment in hospital during labour include this in their birth-plan.
I have found that hospitals tend to be very receptive to the presence of a homeopathic practitioner and I have enjoyed
positive collaboration with midwives and other medical staff.
three different birth packages to suit individual needs:
of an introductory consultation in which I explain the basic principles of homeopathy and how to apply these in the context
of labour. I loan a kit of relevant remedies with information on how to use them and provide a useful handout.
If required, a longer consultation can be given at this time and a homeopathic prescription made.
Package two includes all of the above and treatment by
myself in the days before, during and immediately after labour. I will endeavour to attend the birth and
be on-call between agreed times for a three-week period. I have found this option tends to provide significant
reassurance for both partners.
Package three provides all of the above and also homeopathic care
and support throughout the pregnancy to address any emotional or physical needs as they arise.
