Firstly, congratulations on the birth of your daughter
If you haven't called pamamidwife yet, or if your placenta is still hanging on, I got this off the internet for homeopathic remedies. Granted, I am not a homeopathic practitioner, I am just C&Ping relevant info. (I believe I posted the link to this article a couple of pages back).
Anywho, here are some remedies and why they might be used:
1.Arsenicum ? with fear and anxiety.
2.Belladonna ? face hot/flushed and red, sensitive to noise, jarring and lights.
3.Cantharis ? burning pains, painful ruination which helps to expel material from uterus.
4.Caulophyllum ? uterus is atonic and flabby, helps the process along. Mother is exhausted.
5.Gelsemium ? is achy, thirsty, weak and exhibits anxiety. Pain runs up abdomen or up and backward.
6.Ipecacuanha ? with nausea.
7.Nux vomica ? with irritability.
8.Pulsatilla ? weepy, wants fresh air. No uterine contractions. Try this remedy when no symptoms are present.
9.Sepia ? bearing down pains from uterus.
hth some, or I hope the placenta has already come out
