this is what I have so far. Ignore some of the bold font, I highlighted what will probably apply to me based on my previous two labors:
Arnica Give throughout labor, approximately every hour. Helps with pain and
swelling or bruising. Prevents afterpains and hemorrhage.
Give immediately after birth. 3 pellets every 15mins for 1 hour, and then 3 x’s daily for 3 days after the birth. Helps prevent infection. Can also be given to baby after traumatic birth or if there is swelling or bruising (dilute in water and give by dropper or just put the water on the lips).
Bellis Perennis Give after the birth to prevent hemorrhage. Give Arnica first, then 10 mins or so later give bellis perennis. Then give 3 x’s daily for 3 days after birth. Helps with hemoglobin levels and to prevent/treat hemorrhage.
Caulophyllum Long first stage of labor, ineffective contractions. Strengthens contractions. When excitable, restless, nervous, chilly, erratic pains and irregular contractions. Muscular weakness, exhausted, nervous
Can help induce labor or make labor more effective. Exhausted and fretful, want company but don’t want to talk. Good for after pains too (cramps especially while nursing after the birth)
Chamomila Will help with painful contractions, feeling unable to continue. Irritable and abusive. Demanding things, then pushing them away. Low back pain, posterior baby
Gelsemium Likely to be effective when caulophyllum fails to act. End of labor, ineffectual contractions. Baby appears to ascend rather than descend with contractions. Drowsy and listless, sleepy when should be pushing. Performance anxiety. Anticipation anxiety just prior to birth of baby.
Cimicifuga Labor pains felt in back hips and thighs instead of uterus. Pain shooting up and down thighs or across pelvis hop to hop. Cramping in large muscles. Fear that something bad will happen. Talking incessantly to relieve fear. Sensitive to noise. Worse from cold. Hysterical with pain.
Kali Carbonicum- BACK (PAIN) LABOR, POSTERIOR BABY****
Nux Vomica Irregular labor pains, little progression of labor. Pains extend to back and rectum. Desire to move bowels and urinate, mother will comment on this often. Irritable, impatient, oversensitive to all external impressions/sensations (noise, touch, odors), very chilly
Pulsatilla Early labor when contractions come and go and labor is not fully established. May help establish labor. Feeling of suffocating if don’t get air
Weepy, restless, can’t tolerate warm room.
Can help bring placenta out if its taking too long after baby is born
Rescue Remedy Overwhelmed, emotional, feeling out of control, unable to cope with pain, feeling of not being able to continue with labor, exhausted. 4 drops on tongue or in water. Repeat as often as needed during labor or after.
