Anyone know about Pulsatilla for turning baby in unstable lie?

I've read it's given for breech babies. My baby is just off to the right of cephalic and I'm in hospital because it can be dangerous if waters break. (am 38 + 4 weeks) I'm trying Moxibustion and I must say it's the day after treatment that the baby has gone cephalic each time but always pops back to oblique. I just wondered if Pulsatilla was indicated in this situation or only for breech. Any homeopaths out there?

Yes here I am!!! Pulsatilla is great for turning an breech baby but it sounds as though your baby is 'oblique' (was a midwife for many years!!)The thing with Pulsatilla is it could encourage a spontaneous rupture of your membranes...not what you want! But in my experience of your situation Gelsenium would be better.Take a gelsenium 30 and rest and let me know! Best Wishes

hi- a pregnant homeopath answering your call yes is the answer re pulsatilla. i'm at work & can't remember the exact dosage/way of taking it to try & turn a breech baby. i've only prescribed it to help induce labour not for turning before- ok if i get back to you tomorrow?

THanks both! Yes Diana - it's oblique not breech. Just to my right of pelvis in fact. someone else also recommended gelsenium today and also caullophyllum (sp?) alternated? what do you think?

Thanks so much again I'll let you know how it goes!!!
