Homeopathic help for speedy recovery
I had both my children “airlifted” but I still managed to use some of my natural birth education both times: I took a homoeopathic remedy religiously after both surgeries.
Yehudi Gordon’s advice for post-operation is to take four remedies (each in 200c potency) 4 times a day for 3 days, then 3 times a day for 4 days. Arnica is the main remedy for trauma. Hypericum is good for nerve trauma after an epidural. Bellis Perennis is to assist healing of deep tissues. Calendula to speed up the healing of the scar. The first time I had one bottle with the four combined remedies prepared by the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital. The second time, I mixed them up myself — I bought the liquid and the four remedies in granules.
Does it really work? Who knows… but I can tell you I always had quick recoveries. Plus there’s no harm in trying!

My lovely midwife whom I had for both my pregnancies is also a homoeopath. She also suggested arnica for pain and Bellis Perennis for healing deep tissues.
Like you said, I’m not sure if it worked, or if I was just lucky to have quick recoveries… but it just felt good to be able to take something!
Paracetemol also helps!
I also took Arnica 200c. And I also had a quick recovery!
Yehudi Gordon’s book is amazing and became a real bible. No mom should be without it! He’s recently updated the A-Z on mother and baby health – http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mother-Baby-Health-Z-Pregnancy/dp/0091912857.
On the homeopathic note, I’d also highly recommend Chamomila tincture for the baby – it helps relax them and its also good for colic.
