I know this doesn't belong here really but I lurk here alot and I know there's alot of wise mamas here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I need some guidance in herbs to help complete a miscarriage on my own. I've been bleeding on/off for 5 weeks and recently had cramping but no bleeding so I'm pretty sure there more in there. I got some great advice so far of:<br><br>
Lobelia tincture<br>
False Unicorn Root tincture<br>
Blue Cohosh tincture<br>
Black Cohosh tincture<br><br>
Is there anyone who's used these herbs to miscarry? <b>I'm looking for those who've used herbs sucessfully.</b> I also had read about using St John's, Skullcap & another I can't remember to help relax during this time as I've have extremely intense ctx.<br><br>
I think I'd like to stay with tintures. Please tell me what to get? I have Wise Woman For Childbearing Years but unfortunately there's almost no info about what to use to help miscarry.<br><br>
Also where do you get these?<br><br>
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And thanks for letting me post here<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

I will mention up front, that I think the mama should be SURE she is having a loss. I have known women to bleed HARD and still be safely pregnant.<br><br>
I would use shepherd's purse, blue and black cohosh and NOT the lobelia, personally. It can make things drag on for some people. Use the above 3 with some skullcap or valerian to help ease the anxiety they can produce.<br><br>
Her basic recipe in the back of WWHCBY is pretty useful, even though it is only one. It is titled something like completing a miscarriage. I've used it before, though it didn't work with my recent blighted ovum (in hindsight, those don't react like a missed m/c or other loss).<br><br>
I get them at the local health food store in the bulk herbal section but for the blue cohosh I had to order online. The 2 online herb places I generally use are Mountain Rose Herbs (there's a buying co-op here on mdc for them) and Stony Mountain Botanicals.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I'm sorry for your loss! I hope things pass soon so you aren't in limbo anymore.

We lost a pregnancy at 6w4d. I found out at 8w4d weeks embryo had stopped growing.<br><br>
I took<br>
1000mg of Vit C every hour all day until bedtime everyday<br>
and<br>
put a parsley sprig inserted vaginally (1 for 12 hours, get new one)<br>
and<br>
made a drink of 2 cups of boiling water over 1 cup parsley, seaped and cool.......drink 2 -4 tablespoons every hour<br><br>
I did this for 3 days, at the beginning of day 4 I started my miscarriage and it was complete. Lasted 7 days with normal amount of bleeding and clots.

Chasteberry was helpful to me when I miscarried last summer. I don't know that<br>
it helped me complete it faster (it took about 6wks,) but I do think it helped out with the hormonal rollercoaster.<br><br>
I'm sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Thanks mamas<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Ooooh I have chasteberry on hand now. I'll start using it again. Thanks for the reminder. Aaaahhhh I had used 6000 mg of vitamin C but wasn't using it every hour. I also tried parsley but only 1 x a day for 2 days.<br><br>
I had been bleeding on/off for 4 weeks. Had a week of nothing this week and thought the mc was done. I had intense cramping on Wed so that was why I thought there must be more but no bleeding still...so <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> I think my uterus is tired for now anyways.<br><br>
Hoping the 1st AF brings the rest out.<br><br>
Thanks again everyone<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">

False Unicorn Root tincture is more for prevention not continuation of a miscarriage<br>
the other 3 would be fine<br>
my preference runs more toward cotton root bark tincture - produces contractions and yarrow- stems bleeding /prevents hemorrhage
