Breech presentation with low Hb and Hypothyroidism

Hi, I am 30 yrs/ primigravida-29 weeks pregnant.My Hemoglobin is low (8.8), and also I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I recently underwent an ultrasound which showed BREECH presentation. Kindly let me know if homoeopathy can help me with breech presentation. I have heard about Pulsatilla (please let me know when can I take this medicine and in what potency)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

In the following write-up you will find a peculiar indication of Pulsatilla. There it is indicated at the time of delivery, so some prescribers may think that it can correct breech presentation. But i don't think that it can do so.


The foetus (baby in the uterus of the pregnant mother) 1-3 weeks prior to delivery date (so long remaining in upright position) turns upside down, and the uterus descends down in such a way that the head of the foetus remains fixed in the pelvic floor of the mother. 1-3 weeks later, at the delivery time the mouth of the uterus dilates and the child comes out. Even after the full term of ten months if the child does not turn upside down, or turns half-way and lies crosswise,
having turned upside down, does not descend further down, the attending lady doctor would say that head is still floating or is in incorrect position and so opens the abdomen to take out the child. This is called caesarean surgery. 70 to 90 per cent of caesarean surgeries at the present day are conducted solely for this reason.
At this time if the patient takes three doses of the homoeopathic medicine Pulsatilla-1000, every 4-8 hours, in the next twenty-four hours it would be a normal and safe delivery.

In the reference book The Accoucheur’s Emergency Manual by Dr. W. A. Yingling, M.D., of U.S.A. we find the following :

'Abnormal presentations may be righted if Pulsatilla is given before the membranes are ruptured or the presenting parts are firmly engaged…'

In a maternity hospital, Pollachi Road, Dharapuram, Tamilnadu, by using Pulsatilla and other remedies there has not been even a single caesarean for the past several years and the doctor in-charge has put up a board “Caesarean-free’’ Clinic. The Dharapuram Lions Club has given her a certificate testifying this.



Please read the following write-up on tissue salts.

There is one bio-chemic combination product that is available as bc 26. BC 26 is called as bio-chemic combination for easy parturition.

It's composition is
calc fluor 6x
calc phos 6x
mag phos 6x
kali phos 6x

in equal proportion.

Those who can get bc-26 may take 4 pellets of this combination during pregnancy thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours. Those who can't get this combination may buy the individual tissue salts given above and take 1 pellet of each tissue salt thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours.

There are various opinions among the prescribers. Some prescribers say that instead of mag phos, ferrum phos (alongwith the other three) should be taken upto 9 months and when the ninth month starts then only mag phos (alongwith the other three) should be taken.

Some prescribers say that these salts should be taken only on alternate weeks. But i am a liberal prescriber when it comes to prescribing tissue salts. So you can take the tissue salts during the pregnancy in any way you like out of the ways given above.

Please note that tissue salts act at nutritional plane and these salts may be taken together. The principle of one remedy at a time applies only to homeopathic remedies taken in potencies 30c and above.

A homeo remedy is always selected on the basis of totality of symptoms. The rule also applies while selecting remedy for a pregnant lady. Please answer the following questions to help us know totality of your symptoms.

*Please describe your mental state like you are irritable, calm, worried, depressed, frustrated etc. How are your relations with your close relatives and friends?

*What do you think is the causative factor for your problems?

*Please describe your other physical symptoms like headache, backache etc.

*You prefer cold environment and open air or do you prefer warm surroundings.

*At what time of day you as an individual feel better and worse like better in the morning and worse at night.

*How is your sleep?

*How is sweat? It is less, more or normal? Where do you sweat more like in armpits, head etc.

*How is your thirst for water, cold drinks and hot drinks?

*Whether the complaints aggravate after movements or while taking rest.

*How is your bowel movement? Constipated, loose or normal. How is the digestion?

Please take a single dose of Sepia 200c and see how that affects in the next 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 45 minutes before or after taking medicine.

i don't think that one can use homeo remedies with high level of predictive success on states like breech presentation. There are many homeopaths who prescribe on the basis of protocols written here and there. These homeopaths may assert that even breech presentation could be normalized with homeo remedies. i doubt effectiveness of such protocols. If you know about any protocol you may write here. Similarly those who know about such protocols may also come forward. Such protocols can then be evaluated by forum members and commented upon. But i have told you my personal opinion.
