Baby Blues and Lactation Problems

The period after childbirth, to say the least, is an emotional roller-coaster. The excitement of finally meeting your baby, the altered sleeping patterns, physical exhaustion from labour and childbirth, the hormonal changes and not forgetting the feeding cycles – all this can become overwhelming. Post-natal depression or baby blues is very common after childbirth and should not be seen as a sign of weakness. You can approach your local GP and they will be able to give you proper guidance and a referral to a psychologist or counsellor, if required.

Homeopathy can be invaluable to new mothers in such circumstances to help restore a positive outlook and to resolve lactation issues, if any. The treatment takes into consideration your individual symptoms, your mental and emotional state as well as your likes and dislikes. For example, if you are weepy, feeling thirstless and craving cold foods, your remedy will be different to another mother who is detached from her baby and feels better after exercising or dancing. This is the beauty of homeopathy. Even though two people may be given the same diagnosis, the therapy takes into account their unique experiences and hence, each will be given a different remedy. The other advantage with homeopathy is a natural and holistic choice if you are breastfeeding.
