Fertility and breastfeeding
Hello! I am currently breastfeeding and also would like to fall pregnant.
I have become pregnant whilst breastfeeding.
What I would like to know the homeopathy remedies that you given for fertility issues like polyps etc will they affect breastfeeding.
I have had a lot of pressure to wean my child but she still wants to feed and it doesn't bother me.
Thank you for your help,
Taking homeopathic remedies while breastfeeding is very safe for both mother and child even if you are planning another pregnancy.
The remedy that is selected should be a remedy that fits both mother and child. This type of homeopathic treatment is called classical homeopathy and the characteristics of both mother and child are taken into consideration when selecting the most suitable remedy. This type of treatment is also very effecting in helping a woman conceive.
Classical homeopathy treats the whole person mind and body. When selecting the remedy it is important make sure that the remedy takes into consideration not only the physical symptoms but also the mental and emotional symptoms.
Depending on what the fertility issues are (you mentioned polyps) it should be possible to select a remedy that has an affinity for a particular organ, tissue or disease as well.
It is always a good idea to start the case by administering a remedy that fits the whole picture at the mental, emotional and physical level.
Calcarea carbonica, Phosphorus , Ignatia, Sepia, Pulsatilla, and Platina are good remedies that are commonly prescribed to help a woman get pregnant.
These remedies can be given in a potency of either 6CH or 30CH.
Other more specific remedies that have an affinity for the uterus are given if polyps are the major problem of infertility. They are: erigeron, ustilago, thlaspi, secale, fraxinus, salix, helonias, etc.
These remedies are best given in low potency like 3X, 6x, or 12x.
