No one way is right. It is best to see a local homeopath for your individual needs - this way you can also get advice on the birth and pregnancy if needed. If you want to stick to self-treatment then buy a specific kit for childbirth as you see to the left of the listings on this forum - they are very good and have a nice booklet to explain - usually in this kit it is the 200c potency used.
erika on 2005-08-31I have no experience in the use of Arnica during and after birth but can suggest that you use the 200c potency every 3 hours on the day of delivery including twice before delivery taken a few hours before and every 3 hours immediately after on the first day. From the second day onwards you can use the 30c potency every 3 hours.
I would recommend that you use the Arnica in the Wet Dose made up as follows:
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from your nearest supermarket.
Pour out 100ml
Drop in 3 pellets or 1 drop of liquid Arnica 30c into the 400ml water
Cap the bottle tightly and succuss it 4-6 times by banging on your palm and look out for the air bubbles to fizzle up from the bottom.
Pour out 1 teaspoonful of the potentized remedy and sip it every 3 hours with the last dose taken last thing at night.
You will discover that your delivery will be virtually painless and that you will recover very quickly.
It would be useful to all who visit this forum if you will please record your response to the Arnica therapy.
Joe De Livera on 2005-08-31Arnica 1M once daily for 3 days has been very helpful for recovering moms. Professor Kent had mentioned this and I have used this with much success.
