Creating Waves of Awareness
Can homeopathy do something about the placement of the placenta in this case? If it is possible to put the child into the right position before the labour with pulsatilla for example, are there any possibilities to do it with the placenta?
1. Placenta Previa (Implanted in Lower Third of Uterus)
3. Uterine Wall
I have just bought myself a new book about pregnancies.
Placenta praevia is also mentioned.
As the placenta chooses its place from the beginning of the pregnancies it is not possible that it can move, as it is fixed to the bloodstream of the mother.
They differentiate between
- Placenta praevia marginalis
- Placenta praevia partialis
- Placenta praevia totalis
and a sectio (Caesarean) is inevitable.
Homeopathy can ease the side effects, which are mostly bleedings. The heavier the baby gets the more important is the treatment. As the baby compresses the placenta and destroys the placenta which can lead to a life-threatening situation for mother and child.
The mother will have to lie down most of the time and this can lead to more complications where homeopathy can help.
The remedies mentioned are:
Erigeron, ip, nux-v., sabina, sep, verat
Hi Claudia, thx for the answer. I know it is almost unbelievable but I´ve heard for some cases where with the growth of the uterus the placenta moved from itself? Is it possible? And in some cases with the opening during the labour the baby moved the placenta with the head without damage...in the end is all the matter of luck i think..
Can all the mentioned remedies be also prophylactic - to prevent bleeding, or better give if the bleeding happens?
I´ve heard also about Cinamomum preventing/stopping bleeding..
Cinamonum is also a remedy for bleeding during pregnancies especially in a case of a threatening abortion.
The remedies I mentioned are the ones mentioned in the book. There are only suggestions...As always we should look for the symptoms and therefore no prophylactic therapy is necessary.
I am not sure what miasma placenta praevia would be...? probably syphilitic.
So my idea would be to treat the woman according to her dominating miasma to strengthen her and the baby.
And...yes I do believe that everything is possible......but we do not know that in advance......unfortunately..."smile"
Much will depend on the extent of the placenta praevia - ie how much of the cervix is covered and also the stage of pregnancy at which this is disagnosed, is it a true placenta praevia or a low lying placenta noted earler in pregnancy that may well not affect the labour and birth as the lower segment of the uterus grows and the placenta can appear to move up the uterine wall
I'd definitely think about Erigeron ,but most importantly research the Placenta Proving by Linda Gwillim of the Welsh School of Homoeopathy - inspiring reading and well worth considering for any placental problems
Dear thihana, dear members
Much depends on the stage of pregnancy and the position of the placenta.
there is a good chance, that a placenta previa can move to the side and not pose any problem.
There are no specific remedies for this condition, but normal homeopathic treatment based on the totality of symptoms will do what can be done.
I have seen more cases come around than not over the years with homoeopathic treatment.
A final decission should be taken only at the very end of pregnancy. In some cases a caesarian is desirable.
The choice of remedy after such an operation depends on the signs and symptoms emerging.
Strong bleeding would suggest:
ARN, CARB-V, LACH, PHOS, SULPH, but also: creos, croc, hep-s, mgs, nat-m ph-ac, puls, rhus, sul-ac, zinc
depending on the rest of the symptoms
Likewise calcium IV., and factor 11 +12 should be on stand-by.
Thank you Hans and Lyssa for this information.
