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.
During the SKYPE Tutorial with Candice it is recommended that the birth partner attends along with the mother-to-be to get the best support from the remedies.
Hypnobirthing Practitioner, Amy Dignam, has posted the following message for expectant mothers during this extraordinary global situation:
“If you know of anybody who is currently pregnant and feeling anxious and stressed by this very uncertain situation we’re in, PLEASE do put them in touch with me.
Pregnant women are currently having appointments, tests and classes cancelled and this is certainly cause of distress.
I am offering 121online classes on KGhypnobirthing relaxation techniques for half the usual price.”
