The Homeopathic Childbirth Manual: A Practical Guide for Labor, Birth, and the Immediate Postpartum Period is a reference guide written for pregnant women, homeopaths, midwives, and other birth professionals. It offers clear and easy-to-follow information on how to manage many of the physical and emotional challenges encountered during the birth process with the use of homeopathy, a gentle, yet powerful effective form of natural medicine.

“Betty’s book is easy to read and understand—two elements vital to learning and understanding the art of homeopathy.”—Jill Cohen, midwife and associate editor for Midwifery Today magazine

“This is the finest reference guide to homeopathic care for pregnancy, birth, and the newborn I have read. The philosophy of birth being a healthful process in a family’s life is echoed throughout the book. Ms. Idarius continues the legacy of midwifery; to be “with women,” listening with open heart and mind. This valuable resource manual gives me the guidance and confidence to broaden my use of homeopathic remedies in my midwifery practice. Thank you for such an eloquent, gentle, and thorough compendium of homeopathy for the childbearing woman and her newborn.”—Laura Mann, C.N.M., F.N.P., M.S., faculty at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing, course coordinator of Promoting Health and Wellness, Welcoming Home Nurse-Midwifery Service

“Ms. Idarius has done a great service with this fine manual. The homeopathic information is beautifully presented — in a highly lucid fashion. It is clear that she is not only speaking from many years of experience with the subject, but even more valuable, that she brings to it a sensitivity arising out of a deep love of this work. Bravo!”—Ana Chavarria de Shore, P.A.-C., Homeopath/Women’s Health

“This book is indispensable to the homeopathic management of the birthing experience.”—Greg Bedayn, R.S.Hom.(N.A.), C.C.H., editor of The American Homeopath
