Author Patty Brennan is a lay homeopath with over 30 years' experience integrating homeopathy into midwifery practice and family home health care. She possesses that pioneering spirit characteristic of midwives who came into practice during the resurgence of homebirth midwifery in the United States in the late 1970s. Seeking to "do no harm" as the first principle of effective mother-baby care, Patty began to study, explore and witness the healing power of homeopathy.
In response to the need for safe, effective modalities to address common complaints and complications during the childbearing year, this book was first published as a small booklet in 1989. Today, Guide to Homeopathic Remedies for the Birth Bag, 5th Edition is a practical, quick, clinical reference guide that birth attendants can easily slip into their bags. Seventy-five key remedies are briefly summarized for the applications in midwifery practice or self-care. An expanded repertory section is designed to expedite choice of a remedy when time is of the essence. Written by a midwife for anyone who works with pregnant, birthing or breastfeeding moms and their babies. Find out why this guide is the "go-to" reference book for thousands of midwives!
