I know you ought to take them throughout labour and then afterwards to help with bruising, but does anyone know the dosages? remember hearing it's something like one an hour during labour then a certain number every day afterwards - any ideas?
I would always give Ainsworths a call as they're real officionados as to dosages and appropriate homeopathy for you. www.ainsworths.com +44 (0)1883 340332
Arnica is an anti inflammatory agent for blood vessels, especially veins, so helps to bring out and speed healing of, bruising.
Anyone taking high blood pressure medications or blood-thinning medications should tell their doctor they are planning to take it as it can increase risk of bleeding in those people. People taking medicines that affect the hearts rhythm or function may have worse effects if they take arnica as well.
Personally, I took it every two hours throughout labour and then for two weeks afterwards. I also take it for two days before operations and for a week or two afterwards.
