double-blind, placebo-controlled trialArnica, Caulophyllum, Actea racemosa, Pulsatilla, Gelsemium,
In classical homeopathy , there are many possible homeopathic treatments for childbirth support, to be chosen based on various specific details of the woman seeking treatment.
Homeopathic Caulophyllum is a common homeopathic remedy in childbirth. ( Caulophyllum is made from the toxic herb blue cohosh, but it is safe when given at homeopathic potencies.) The symptom picture of this remedy includes a history of irregular menstruation and previous difficult deliveries, including sharp needle-like pains occurring during labor, along with trembling, nervousness, and a sense of uterine weakness.
Belladonna is traditionally used for women in labor exhibiting delirious agitation, confusion, flushing, and fever.
The classic symptom picture of Cimicifuga includes painful spasms that travel a long distance, deep sighs, and gloominess expressed by statements to the effect that labor will be impossible to complete.
