WIth the Bealtine Blessing a new life came into the world in Co Wicklow, born at home. There is not much new in that as lots of women in Co Wicklow have home births. What makes Eimear's home birth a little bit different was that she had had two previous c births.

This is the first HBA2C in the Republic of Ireland since the introduction of the MOU in 2008. What made Einmear's birth even more lovely was that she had a waterbirth. Another first for a woman with two previous c-births!

Congratulations to everyone involved <3 Well done mama for getting the birth you wanted <3

This is a second event I am hosting specifically for parents who would like to know more about using homeopathy for the upcoming birth of their child, and also for healing afterwards. The standards birth kit which many parents buy can appear to be very complicated on first reading so this course aims to focus on clear symptoms and simple prescribing. Hope to see some of you there :) ...

Homeopathy during birth and afterwards - a guide for parents

May 6, 2017, 10:00am - May 6, 2017, 7:00am

Insight Matters

This course is primarily geared towards pregnant people and their partners. The course will look at the main homeopathic remedies that are helpful in labour birth and beyond. We will look at potency dosage and repeats and also at the symptoms which can be helped with homeopathic support. Key symptoms we will look at include those of exhaustion, fear, anxiety, back labour, irritability and doubt. We will also be looking at physiological support for situations such as long labours, back labours, fast labours, tears, bruising and scar support. We will also look at therapeutic support postnatally including common breastfeeding supports. At the end of the course you will have a basic idea of how homeopathy supports women during this intense time of transition and also what remedies match which symptoms. You will also have an idea of how to use a basic homeopathic birth kit, and we will talk a bit about creating your own birth and postpartum kit. There is an online support tool for the course so participants will be able to refer to this to refresh their memories after the course is over!
