this weekend at work a met a really nice woman who is pregnant with her 10th baby. her family is part of some branch of the Mennonite community. All her babies are home births with a midwife. She said that after she had her 5th baby her new midwife suggested using liquid calcium for pain relief during labor. She said its been an absolute Godsend. i have absolutely never heard of such a thing. She said it gives a tremendous amount of pain relief.
I didn't know this, but apparently the after pains become worse with each baby. perhaps this is only relevant when you have 10 kids lol, but she said her after pains rival the pain of labor at this point. she takes the liquid calcium to get her through transition, labor, and the after pains.
i spent some time googling it and found some anecdotal stories saying that it works great for everything from labor to wisdom teeth!! has anyone ever heard of, or used this?
the idea makes me a little nervous, liquid calcium reaks havoc on the stomach, plus its something you definitely DONT want to over dose on, yet im intrigued at the same time!
