Editorial Reviews

Review

"Betty's book is easy to read and understand-two elements vital to learning and understanding the art of homeopathy." -- Jill Cohen, midwife and associate editor for Midwifery Today magazine

"Excellent! Perfect blend of common sense, intuition, information, and encouragement!" -- Martha Groggel, C.N.M., Ph.D., faculty at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing

"Ms. Idarius has done a great service with this fine manual. The homeopathic information is beautifully presented - in a highly lucid fashion. It is clear that she is not only speaking from many years of experience with the subject, but even more valuable, that she brings to it a sensitivity arising out of a deep love of this work. Bravo!" -- Ana Chavarria de Shore, P.A.-C., Homeopath/Women's Health

"Thanks are due to Betty for her thorough and informative manual on a much neglected subject." -- Richard Moskowitz, M.D., author of Homeopathic Medicines for Pregnancy and Childbirth

"The information presented in this book is clear, concise, and interspersed throughout with practical suggestions. Betty's dedication to the birthing process shines through on every page." -- Miranda Castro, F.S.Hom., C.C.H., R.S.Hom., author of Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth and Your Baby's First Year, The Complete Homeopathy Handbook, and Homeopathic Guide to Stress

"This book brings homeopathy to a new level by combining the skills necessary for good midwifery care with the application of homeopathy. It, therefore, provides an excellent practical foundation for those assisting the woman during childbirth." -- Louis Klein, R.S.Hom., founding president of North American Society of Homeopaths

"This book is a must for any midwife or homeopath helping women with the birthing process and any pregnant woman who wants to learn the benefits of homeopathy for childbirth." -- Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, N.D., DHANP, of The Patient's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine, Homeopathic Self-Care: The Quick and Easy Guide for the Whole Family, Ritalin-Free Kids, and Prozac Free

"This is the finest reference guide to homeopathic care for pregnancy, birth, and the newborn I have read. The philosophy of birth being a healthful process in a family's life is echoed throughout the book. Ms. Idarius continues the legacy of midwifery; to be "with women," listening with open heart and mind. This valuable resource manual gives me the guidance and confidence to broaden my use of homeopathic remedies in my midwifery practice. Thank you for such an eloquent, gentle, and thorough compendium of homeopathy for the childbearing woman and her newborn." -- Laura Mann, C.N.M., F.N.P., M.S., faculty at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing, course coordinator of Promoting Health and Wellness, Welcoming Home Nurse-Midwifery Service

From the Author

Childbirth is a special time in a woman's life, a time of evolution when she blossoms into motherhood, and the family is born. It is the second gateway of initiation towards embodying her inherent female wisdom (the first gateway being menarche, the beginning of menstruation, and the last, menopause, the crone or wise woman years). As she is supported by her partner, family, friends, birth attendant, as well as her environment, in giving birth to her child, so she taps into the powers of surrender, trust, and selflessness that enable her to mother wisely.

Homeopathy offers the birthing woman a gentle, yet powerful, support to overcome many challenges along the way. It is a natural system of medicine without the side effects often accompanying conventional medical treatment.

The goal of this book is to empower you to use homeopathic medicines safely and effectively during childbirth and the immediate postpartum period even if you are a newcomer to it. It is not meant to replace the midwife or doctor, but to give you a first line of action that can prevent the need for further intervention.

I welcome you to a unique healing approach that will build your self-confidence and understanding of the healing process. Though you are sure to experience many powerful results using the information included, it is only the beginning of what homeopathy has to offer. Homeopathy is a complex science/art that involves a lifetime of study to master. A suggested list of books and resources to continue your study is provided at the end of this book.

For many years, as a midwife, I have been blessed as a witness to, and participant in, the miracle of childbirth. It is clear to me that a woman inherently knows how to give birth when she is given the loving support to believe in herself. I hope this book will assist you to trust and rely on that inner wisdom. Happy birthing!

This book covers the homeopathic remedies that you can use during childbirth. Betty Idarius gives us a clear picture of each remedy, so that the symptoms are obvious when you see them. I've used this book extensively at births, and consider it to be the best book on childbirth homeopathy. I only wish she would write one about prenatal and postpartum homeopathy!

This is a very easy to read and understand guide to homoeopathy for midwives. I feel very confident as a practitioner following the recommendations made by Betty Idarius. It is very helpful to have the recommended birth kit remedies included. They have been ranked in order of most commonly to least commonly used.

Great comprehensive guide. Was able to avoid induction and control a post partum hemorrhage by following the suggestions in this guide.

I bought this book after participating in a seminar from my school (of homeopathy)
the homeopath that recommended the book works with Betty on a regular basis and had only great things to say about her knowledge. it is the kind of book that you just read as soon as you pick it up and until you are done reading through...
I bought this book for my midwife (after I had one of my kids at home with her over the phone - half way across the world) and I had to give her something back - I got this book, and Miranda Castro's books of first aid and homeopathy for pregnancy, birth and the baby's first year ( which is also a great resource) if you are a midwife you need to get this book. if you are about to have a baby and would like to have the security of homeopathy - she also includes a list of remedies for a birth kit (of course this would serve any midwife as well) and you could be prepared and have some one that will be present at the birth read through the book before, to familiarize themselves with it so they can just dive right in if it is needed during delivery. this would be my number one recommendation for homeopathy for delivery. it is written in a very easy and clear way. anyone could use this book at the right time...
