EZ Birth Homeopathic Remedy ~ Childbirth support
EZ Birth is a homeopathic remedy used as a supportive agent in normal childbirth. EZ Birth is to be taken under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner to help reduce the severity of pain associated with childbirth/labour.
For decades, midwives have been recommending a regimen of Actea racemosa, Arnica montana, Caulophyllum thalictroides, Gelsemium sempervirens, and Pulsatilla in a 5C potency to be taken daily within the last month of pregnancy to help prepare the body to give birth. This remedy has been studied extensively, including a 1987 double-blind placebo study by Doctors Pierre Dorfman, Marie Noel Lasserre, and Max Tetau.
Now Mederi has simplified the process, combining these five remedies into a single pill that's easy to take.Directions of use: Pregnant Women - Beginning in the 37th week of pregnancy, chew one tablet three times a day 20 minutes away from food or drink.
