Does anyone know of any good articles on the homeopathic drug Pulsatilla for turning breech babies? I am now 39 weeeks preggo and my baby is still breech and am trying everything to try to get her to turn on her own. I have seen little bits here and there about pulsatilla but nothing really concrete. my doc didn't know anything about it either and wants some info on it before giving me the go ahead to try it. If anyone knows of any links or articles from any books, please send them this way! I've become a bit obsessive on the internet searching and searching for anything i can find!

Thanks!
Diana

I don't have any links or articles for you at the moment---will have to look and see if I bookmarked any...

However, I did take pulsatilla (wish I could remember the dosage) on the recommendation of my mw---she had some on hand so I didn't have to go buy any. I took it for three days (2x a day) and did the knee/chest turning exercises in conjunction. The impression I got from her was that it could either help or would do no harm.


Will try to see if I can find more info for you later. Sending lots of turn baby turn vibes your way!


eta: Try this link from Midwifery Today

and also lots of tidbits if you scroll through this link from the Gentlebirth website archives

I don't have any articles, but I took pulsatilla to turn my posterior baby and it worked. I also did the knee/chest position. But I'd been doing the knee/chest position for weeks and didn't get results until I took the pulsatilla. so, I think it did something. (DS did end up turning back around and being stuck posterior because of the cord...but that's beside the point.)
