No period in a woman's life is as filled with special concerns as pregnancy and new motherhood. Among the many discomforts and ailments treatable with the homeopathic remedies explained in this book are:

For the mother: anemia, back pain, breastfeeding problems, constipation, exhaustion, hemorrhoids, insomnia, morning sickness, post-partum depression, sinusitis, varicose veins, yeast infections

For the baby: breathing difficulties, chicken pox, constipation, cough, diaper rash, diarrhea, ear infection, hiccups, mumps, sleep problems, teething pains, vomiting

In Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth, and Your Baby's First Year, practicing homeopath, Mirando Castro introduces readers to the many safe, effective, inexpensive, and nonmedical remedies that homeopathy has to offer women in this very important period. With reassuring, easy-to-read text, the book explains the principles of homeopathy and tells readers how to select the remedies that correlate to hundreds of common symptoms of physical and emotional distress. The book also offers natural ways to make labor and birth as relaxed as possible, using homeopathic methods.
Complete with case histories, materia medica, and supportive and helpful tips throughout, this guidebook offers a wealth of natural-health information every expentant mother should consider.

Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

Written by a London-based homeopath who is the author of The Complete Homeopathy Handbook ( LJ 2/1/92) and who specializes in child care, Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth, and Your Baby's First Year reviews in detail homeopathic concepts, techniques, and remedies that can be applied to treatable symptoms and complaints experienced by pregnant mothers and infants. While the book focses on minor conditions that don't require a doctor's attention, such as varicose veins and breastfeeding problems, it is written as a specialized instructional manual that requires the reader either to be familiar with the principles and practice of homeopathy o r willing to devote considerable time to its study. For collections where there is a demand for homeopathic books. Information on pregnancy diagnosis, gestation, prenatal care, nutrition, hazards, and pregnancy complications comprises half of Great Expectations , a concise encyclopedia suitable for a general audience. The remaining half addresses labor, delivery, birth complications, and tests, as well as recovery and postnatal feelings. In its tone, readability, illustration, and organization, this guide compares with Lanie Carter and Lauren Ostrow's The Miracle Year ( LJ 5/1/91). However, readers seeking detailed instructions about infant care and development should consult textbooks by such authors as Penelope Leach, Louise Ames, and William Sears, since this guide provides an overview only.

5.0 out of 5 stars I used this treatment for illness for over 35 years. Feb. 4 2014
By R. J. Warfel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The list of illness and disease that my family has been cured of using this practice is too long to mention. To the skeptics, just try Apis Mellifica the next time you get a stung by a bee. Don't criticize what you don't understand. This book is very will done and gives the background behind this noble practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Book for Pregnancy and Motherhood March 27 2005
By athene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Not only does this book give you very specific information on using homeopathic remedies, it focuses on emotional as well as physical symptoms (which is essential to homeopathy). The sections on labor and post-partum are some of the most informative I've read in my pregnancy. Detailed, honest, and non-judgmental, the book covers the myriad and often complicated emotions mothers may encounter during pregnancy and labor, and offers ways to deal with these issues naturally (often with simple practices like taking a bath). This book covers, in detail, several birth complications, and ways the mother can deal with these during labor. This is all done with very easy to read and matter of fact language. No foofy new-age stuff here. I wish every pregnant woman in the world could have the information contained in this book. If you are considering it, BUY IT NOW!

1.0 out of 5 stars It's Water, People Oct. 31 2013
By Grant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Homeopathy is water. Period. I wish it had memory and somehow worked, because a side-effect free "medicine" would be desirable, especially during pregnancy. It's so appealing to think something like homeopathy would work, but sadly it won't. It not only won't work, it can't work.

I applaud the author's desire to care for the well-being of her readership; sadly, all of her assertions have been shown to be ineffective and/or no better than placebo or doing nothing at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Homeopathy works... Oct. 29 2013
By Susan Gerbic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
when you are thirsty or need a sugar boost. Its just a placebo folks, check out the links from the Wikipedia entry. Read and educate yourself past what you are hearing from your nautropath. Science Saves, ask a Real doctor. Whatstheharm.net is a great place to see how others have killed their babies with this kind of thinking, get some real knowledge.
