Homeopathy is a wonderful support for expectant Mothers during pregnancy. Complaints including morning sickness can be treated effectively and most importantly safely for both mother and baby. During the first three months of pregnancy all medication should be avoided, this being the most vulnerable time for mother and baby. Herbs, as well as some Vitamins and Minerals, unless specifically recommended and designed for use during pregnancy are also to be avoided. This can leave Mothers-to-be with fewer self-care options. Homeopathy, however can be invaluable during this time, providing remedies for the individual to help with numerous pregnancy and non-pregnancy related complaints.
Homeopathy & Tissue Salts
John Da Monte’s Tissue Salt pregnancy program uses the New Era tissue salts to support the gestation process for mother and baby. It was devised to assist mother and child throughout the pregnancy. The program can be joined at any time. This program can help to address deficiencies and help the baby with his or her basic need of mineral salts. 2 tablets of each in 6x potency to be taken 2 -4 times daily.

The practice of Yoga in preparation for Childbirth is highly recommended. Pregnancy yoga classes can help to calm the mind, focus the energy and breath, and strengthen the body, preparing mind and body for childbirth.
Nadia Raafat offers 12 week yoga and mindfulness for Pregnancy and Birth classes in Battersea and Kingston. Having attended these classes I recommend these to every Mother-to-be. Nadia is also a trained Birth Doula and provides a space, in her yoga classes, to empower Women, body, mind and spirit, in preparation for labour.
Positive affirmation and visualisation in preparation for childbirth has helped support millions of women through the birthing process. Hypnobirthing techniques are taught that help women to harness control of their minds more effectively and provide them with tools that will aid in the birth process.
Amy Dignam is an inspirational Woman, hypnobirthing practitioner, birth activist and artist. Amy offers Maternal Well-being and Hypnobirthing classes, both privately for couples as well as group classes. Amy will provide a space for Mothers and Fathers-to-be to learn invaluable techniques to support them both during childbirth.

Homeopathic Self-prescribing for Pregnancy & Birth
Homeopathic remedies can provide invaluable support during childbirth for all mothers-to-be, and are especially helpful to have to hand during a home-birth. Candice recommends the Helios Childbirth Kit or the Ainsworths Mother & Child kit, both of which come with easy to follow booklets to help with self-prescribing. Candice is available for a SKYPE tutorial for Mothers-to-be and their birthing partner, in advance of childbirth to explore how the remedies in the kits can be best utilised.
