Does anybody have anything to say about using pulsatilla for induction of labor? 40 weeks on Sunday.

Super mom to a 5 1/2 year old girl, almost 4 yr old girl, and 2 year old boy.

I haven't ever heard of it being used for induction, but it does help with turning breech & transverse babies.

I know quite a bit about homeopathy and have a book about pre-, postnatal treatment and treatment in labor. Like already mentioned it is good remedy to turn breech or transverse babies and also used when the placenta doesn't come after the baby is delivered. However it is a constitutional remedy and if it matches your current constitution it will most definitely bring you in balance and for that reason might start labor when baby is ready to come - or at least help you to handle the time until birth differently and be more balanced.

Personally I had a hard time last week and ended up taking a homeopathic remedy over two days and really had such a better week this time. We are both due on Sunday I started having lots of BH last night and all through the night. Maybe something is happening ... even though I have the slight feeling that I will be pregnant for another week, taking my walks - hopefully with less rain

Have a good weekend!!!

Now I'm wondering if I have any pulsatilla left from when my acupuncturist gave it to me to balance my constitution...

As someone else has posted is is not used for induction but for turning a breech presentation.

The remedies for induction only work if you are within about 24-48 hours of delivery. I hate to say this because I know how hard it is in the end of pregnancy but the baby will come when it's time.

It doesn't actually need to be a constitutional prescription to balance things out. If you have the indications it can be helpful!
