The usual recommendation for women in this situation is to take medication or have a D&C to speed up this process.
Many doctors encourage women to do this to reduce the risk of getting blood poisoning or septicemia. While this is the preferred option for some, many women prefer to let the body release naturally to minimise medical intervention.
Homeopathy respects the needs of the woman, while gently supporting the body to release the foetus in a timely fashion. Sometimes there is an emotional reason why her body isn’t ready to release her baby – she may be wanting to hold on to her baby and unconsciously unwilling to let go.
Many women blame themselves or think they’ve done something wrong, and that’s why the miscarriage has occurred. Let me assure ANY woman who is going through this right now, it is NOT your fault!
No one really knows why miscarriages occur, but a common cause of pregnancy loss is a problem with the chromosomes that would make it impossible for the foetus to develop normally.
Other factors that could contribute to a miscarriage include:
- Abnormal hormone levels in the mother, such as thyroid hormone
- Uncontrolled diabetes
- Exposure to environmental and workplace hazards, such as radiation or toxic agents
- Certain infections
- Uterine abnormalities
- Incompetent cervix, or when the cervix begins to open (dilate) and thin (efface) before the pregnancy has reached term
- Certain medications, such as the acne drug Accutane
- Smoking or sustained drug abuse
As a final word, I want to acknowledge your loss and I encourage you to grieve the loss of your loved one, in whatever way feels appropriate for you. If you have overwhelming feelings of grief that don’t subside or you feel hopeless or depressed, please seek help and support from a pregnancy loss support group or therapist.
