Homeopathy is Amazing for Childbirth

Homeopathy is amazing for childbirth! As of this writing, I have attended 7 childbirths: 4 of my own and the birth of three of my grandchildren. But my youngest two grandchildren were the first in my family to be born with the help of homeopathy.

Two Very Different Childbirth Experiences…Homeopathy Greatly Helped Them Both

My oldest daughter’s recent childbirth was the first one in which we used homeopathy. She had a very healthy pregnancy, in part because she used Joette Calabrese’s Prenatal Homeopathic Cell Salt Regimen.

She was under the care of a midwife group and planned to have a drug-free, completely natural waterbirth at a birthing center. The midwives were familiar with homeopathy , but not educated to know how to use it for childbirth. My daughter’s wishes were to have me there to assist her with homeopathy, and her midwives were very supportive of allowing me to administer the remedies as needed throughout the labor.

The Homeopathic Childbirth Manual familiarized me with the most important homeopathic remedies for childbirth.

To prepare, I studied ahead of time. I took a course called Homeopathy: Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond from Sue Meyer of Homeopathy for Mommies. Sue is the mother of 11 and last I heard, grandmother of 33 grandchildren. She is a wealth of information! The course was broad, covering many remedies that are helpful during pregnancy and after the baby is born, in addition to the actual labor.

I also read two excellent books about homeopathy and childbirth that were specific to labor and delivery: The Homeopathic Childbirth Manual and Guide to Homeopathic Remedies for the Birth Bag.


18 Remedy Homeopathic Childbirth Kit


The most important thing that I did to prepare, was to purchase a homeopathic remedy kit specifically for childbirth. I could have also put together my own kit, but this 18 Homeopathic Remedy Kit for Childbirth by Helios was well stocked with all the most important remedies in the most appropriate potencies. It also came with a small booklet that served as a mini- Materia Medica (description of remedies) and a mini-Repertory (list of symptoms). I referred to it often during the labor and delivery and it served us very well.

The labor was completely natural and the midwives were amazed at how focused and productive my daughter’s labor was. After about 5 hours of labor from start to finish, my daughter gave birth to a healthy, happy baby boy! There was technically one complication, in that the placenta was “slow” to deliver by the standards of the laws in our state. The midwives were required to have my daughter taken to the hospital to finish delivering the placenta and be checked by a medical doctor. I gave my daughter the appropriate homeopathic remedies for delayed delivery of the placenta, and by the time we got to the hospital it was delivered with no problem. Both mother and baby were released within a couple of hours and by that afternoon they were resting happily in the comfort of their own home. 


Less than a year later, my second-oldest daughter was nearing the birth of her new baby. This was her second pregnancy, but the first using homeopathy. Her first pregnancy had some complications and her first labor was an induced hospital birth that was quite traumatic. This second pregnancy had gone very well. Whereas she had pre-eclampsia with the first pregnancy, she had no signs of pre-eclampsia this time. Again, we credit Joette Calabrese’s Prenatal Homeopathic Cell Salt Regimen for helping to keep her and the baby extremely healthy during the pregnancy.
We were very optimistic and hopeful that this time her childbirth would be without complications. Like my older daughter, she too planned to have a mid-wife assisted childbirth at the birthing center. She also desired to have me there to assist with her homeopathic remedies during labor. Unfortunately, we were disappointed to find out that the baby was breach. My daughter tried the appropriate homeopathic remedies for helping to turn a breach baby, along with acupuncture, chiropractic adjustment and a few other natural methods known to help turn a baby. The baby did in fact turn, but he turned back again and it was determined that my daughter would have to have a hospital birth. A procedure was scheduled for the doctor to attempt to manually turn the baby, with the understanding that if it failed they would proceed with an emergency cesarean section.
The baby did not turn and was delivered by c-section. Of course my daughter was disappointed, but she was thankful to have the medical assistance available to ensure a healthy delivery of her baby. Furthermore,  she was prepared to make the best of it with several homeopathic remedies that are known to lessen the effects of surgery. She took homeopathy for pain along with the chemical pain medication for only the first couple of days. After that, she relied solely on homeopathy for her pain and recovery. Although she was disappointed at not having a completely natural childbirth, she was extremely grateful to be able to recover quickly without the prolonged use of pain medication. My newborn grandson was healthy and we were thankful. It did not take long for us to realize, however, that he suffered some minor side-effects from some of the medical interventions. He was colicky, constipated, and not a happy baby. Thankfully, we were able to help him through his issues with homeopathy…but that is a topic for another blog!


The Gateway to Homeopathy Study Group curriculum, by Joette Calabrese, is an excellent way to learn the basics of homeopathy. Gateway to Homeopathy 1 covers the surgical protocols that my second daughter used to lessen the effects of her C-section. Gateway to Homeopathy 2 covers the homeopathic cell salts, which both my daughters used to ensure that their pregnancies were healthy. I lead several Gateway to Homeopathy guided study groups throughout the year. If you would like more information on how to join a guided study group, contact me.


I recently had the honor and privilege of sharing my homeopathy story on the Mom’s With Moxie Podcast. The interview is Podcast 109 – Symptoms as a Gift and a Guide. You can listen to the interview here. 

This grandma is so thankful for her precious grandson and that homeopathy lessens the side-effects of Cesarean Section.
