This immensely portable little 'bedside' repertory is particularly useful for midwives, doulas, partners, nurses and of course homeopaths who are involved in the care of pregnant women and the delivery of babies.
It extracts from myriad reliable sources, all the necessary rubrics and symptoms to do with pregnancy and delivery. Jan Willem has researched books in English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch to draw the information together, making it the only book of its type on the obstetrics and gynaecology fields.
Every source and rubric is referenced.
Because it is so compact, it helps you to make an informed choice of remedy extremely quickly, which is often what is needed in the acute situation of a birth. Or it will guide you to the right remedy to speed up a slow, painful delivery. Or soothe the aches as the pelvic ligaments stretch. Or find just the right remedy to stop the nausea and sickness of early pregnancy.
Homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle, and perfect to take during a pregnancy.
This is an ideal book to use in tandem with Patricia Hatherley's "The Homoeopathic physician's guide to Lactation .
