Excerpt: Midwives and Homeopathy

Like homeopaths, midwives render care to the whole person. The pregnant woman’s concerns, feelings, dietary habits and physical discomforts, as well as the baby’s growth, are known to be interconnected and are viewed in context. When problems surface, nourishing and gentle interventions are sought, deferring heroic measures for the rare crisis. In homeopathy, we find the perfect complement to the science and art of midwifery. It is a fascinating study. That substances exist in nature that perfectly reflect the idiosyncrasies of human beings in endless variety, and that these substances can be transformed into non-toxic medicines, is nothing short of miraculous.
