Aaron, a few weeks old, stretched in his sleep as his mom put him in my arms. “Isn’t he just beautiful?“, Josephine asked me while staring at the face of her rainbow baby. I could only nod swallowing tears of happiness for this young mom. Realising how much of an impact homeopathy can have.
Although Josephine was early twenties and the doctors saw now reason for her not to conceive, month after month passed without a positive test. Every time her flow would start, she would send the firetruck emoticon together with a tearful emoticon to her husband and stepmother.
Shortly into the consultation, however, I could see exactly what was going on. Very sadly Josephine had suffered a pregnancy loss the year before. Her baby was still born at 35 weeks pregnancy.
Ever since this heartbreaking event, she had been suffering with excessive perspiration namely at night, and with lower back pain. Her menstrual cycle was also completely different to before her pregnancy. While she used to have textbook 28 day cycles, they now were 30-31 and she bled for 6 days every time.
Josephine’s physical symptoms revealed that her body was still stuck in the pregnancy loss and her hormonal balance was completely out of whack.
I prescribed Kalium Carbonicum and the first night after taking it she woke only once with night sweats. The next night she didn’t wake at all and her back ache went. Kalium Carbonicum is a major remedy for back ache in combination with hormone related night sweats – eg post-miscarriage, post-birth, during nursing, or during menopause.
Josephine’s cycle however, remained long. That is, until we addressed the grief she was carrying over her unborn baby with the remedy Ignatia.
Within two cycles she was back to 28 days and fell pregnant with Aaron… her rainbow baby.
