Pregnancy & Children
Pregnancy & Children
Homeopathy is a safe and gentle way of supporting your body through the physical and emotional changes in pregnancy. Physical challenges that can be helped by remedies include morning sickness, heartburn, cystitis and thrush. Emotionally homeopathy can help support you through any tiredness and fatigue and give you a sense of wellbeing.
Homeopathy can be used as a natural pain reliever for back ache and other labour pains. Bev offers a homeopathy self-help package which includes the use of a homeopathic kit for use in labour/ childbirth and tuition in using it. She is also able to prescribe remedies for you on an individual basis.
In the crucial early days homeopathy can be used to support you to recover from any bleeding and bruising and trauma from the birth. Bev has also found it to be useful for breastfeeding issues (milk flow, mastitis, sore and cracked nipples, reducing milk naturally).
Babies & Children
As homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle they can be used from birth. They can be used for addressing symptoms such as cradle cap, colic (along with baby massage), jaundice, feeding difficulties, birth trauma and repeated crying.
Children respond very well generally to treatment as their vitality is naturally high. As well as supporting their own immune systems to recover from childhood illnesses, parents often seek help for chronic conditions such as asthma and eczema. Homeopathy can gently support children through emotional issues manifesting in symptoms such as bedwetting, anxiety and phobias. This includes anxiety at transition times such as starting nursery, school, parental separation and examination stress. Homeopathy can also be used with anxiety and emotional distress experienced by children with behavioural problems and conditions including ADHD and autistic spectrum disorder.
As a parent herself Bev has seen first-hand how effective homeopathy can be in promoting overall health and wellbeing in children. She is interested in working with children of all ages and particularly as early as possible. She draws upon her professional experience of working ante-natally and post-natally alongside midwives and health visitors in a family support role on the ‘Bump to Baby’ project and her experience and passion for baby massage.
She uses homeopathy in a complementary role alongside the conventional treatment you are receiving. Parenthood can be a wonderful and fulfilling experience but it can also be overwhelming. Bev believes that this time is crucial for natural and holistic intervention that strengthens the parent-baby bond.
