I am often asked if Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy. Homeopathy is so safe, that I can honestly say that without it, I would have miscarried two times more than the four miscarriages that I had before I found homeopathy.
I have used homeopathy to aid many women in carrying a pregnancy to term, or to avoid a threatening miscarriage.
I can remember early miscarriages. One in particular… my first. The ultra-sound revealed that the baby was still alive. The doctor told me to go home and go to bed, he said that there was nothing that could be done…I was almost 10 weeks…after two horrific weeks of hemorrhage, another ultra sound revealed that my baby had died, and I needed a D&C. My baby had died several days before the final ultra-sound and my heart was broken, for what I thought would be forever.
I asked the nurses to baptize even though there wasn’t much left. I cried literally night and day for about a week, when suddenly, I was given the grace to realize that if I could be good…I’d meet my baby someday. So I stopped crying and said a prayer of Thanksgiving for my little Angel.
God has a plan and He allows these events for a reason. Every loss shapes a mother’s heart. I felt such guilt when I lost this baby; I already had two tiny babies and found out that I was expecting, AGAIN! Oh, poor me, right? Well, I lost that gift. Then my prayer became a plea, that I would never again feel sorry for myself.
I don’t think that I ever did….by the grace of God of course.
Since then, I’ve used remedies to save two more of my own pregnancies, and helped moms going through much of the same situation, to stop the hemorrhage and carry their babies to term. I Thank God that we have these little remedies on hand to at least do what we can; so, that we don’t feel helpless. And I’d say that a threatened miscarriage has at least a 50% chance of survival, if remedies can be used immediately at the time of the threat.
Not every pregnancy will be ok, but many more will be, than without it.
So Yes, I say…homeopathy is very safe during pregnancy.
Are there remedies to avoid?
The only homeopathic remedies that must be avoided are: Apis in any potency lower than a 30c…Why? Because it can work so well, that it may compromise a mother’s water. (Even this is a maybe…but Kent says, let’s not chance it)
Also, hormone remedies should be used only at the suggestion of a good homeopath. Not that they will really trigger the body in a wrong direction…but healing should be monitored by potency, and most people are not really versed in this well enough.
I encourage mommies to use any remedy in 30c potency that fits the symptoms that they are experiencing. This is a good rule to live by when pregnant.
Don’t avoid using homeopathy when pregnant. Because very often you can help to maintain your health and the health of your unborn child just by listening to your body when it sends a symptom for a needed remedy!
May God Bless You and Yours,
