Question from Christina: “Hello, I have been advised to take Actaea racemosa 9C and Caulophyllum thalictroides 9C to help me with childbirth – my issue is that I am already 40 weeks + 3 days due, is this still effective?”
(Given that it is advisable to start the treatment 2 weeks prior to the due date). What is the correct dosage for before and during childbirth? Different pages offer conflicting advice with regards to the dosage. This is my second pregnancy and in my first pregnancy I was induced at 42 weeks. Many thanks and best wishes.”
Our answer: We hope we are still in time!!! We always advise you to see your homeopath, but in your case we will explain how you could take the two homeopathic medicines.
Actaea racemosa 9C and Caulophyllum thalictroides 9C can also be taken once your labour pains have started, alternating 3 pellets of each remedy every half hour.
After your waters have broken, your need to take the same amount, alternating the two remedies – but this time they need to be taken more frequently – every 15 minutes. You can start with either remedy.
When you have reached the childbirth stage, you can take each remedy according to your needs:
If you need to dilate, you can take 1 pellet of Caulophyllum thalictroides 9C every 15 minutes.
If you need to contract, you can take 1 pellet of Actaea racemosa 9C every 15 minutes.
When you are in the postpartum period, the following remedies will help you with pain relief, reducing inflammation and encouraging milk production:
Actaea racemosa 9C – 3 pellets to be taken three times a day.
Arnica montana 9C – 3 pellets to be taken three times a day.
Ricinus 9C – 3 pellets to be taken three times a day.
