Homeopathic Medicines During Pregnancy

The relative safety of the homeopathic medicines make them ideal for pregnancy, labor, and breastfeeding. 

Pregnancy can be particularly stressful on your body. Women often experience exacerbations of previous health problems or various new symptoms. Some of these common symptoms and conditions are nausea, abdominal gas, vaginal infections, bladder infections, herpes, insomnia, anemia, backaches, breast swelling and swelling in general, constipation, hemorrhoids, leg cramps, skin eruptions, and varicose veins.  All of these conditions can be treated with homeopathic medicine. However, since your health directly affects the health of your baby, it is recommended that you receive professional homeopathic care, rather than self-diagnose and/or treat yourself. One ailment you can often treat safely and successfully yourself is nausea and vomiting. The remedies and instructions for this are available from most health food shops.
