    Default Rescue Remedy Flower Essence?

    So this is one of the items on my birth supply list that isn't in my birth kit but I'm supposed to have on hand. I went to our local Sprouts today and tried to look, asked for help, but didn't find the kind I needed.

    Does anyone else have experience taking it? Did you find it helped at all? I'm not educated with herbs/homeopathic remedies but I know my HB midwives are and I'm having a hard time waiting 2 weeks until my home visit to ask

    I didn't use it in labour but tried it for ppd. It didn't do a thing for me. I don't know if it would be different in labour or not. I know a few women who swear by it for labour, but then I know a few women who swear by it for ppd too.

    Sorry, that was complete unhelpful, just my experience.

    well the cream is supposed to do wonders for the "ring of fire" during labor and i got it to try but was pushing before i thought about applying it and didn't think about it afterward. I've been takings the oral stuff since and i can't really say that its helping or not since i can't compare it to the same situation just without it. I think alot of it is just a reassurance thing.. if you think/know it will work then it will and vice versa.. Mind over matter kind of thing. but that's just my take on it. I do have to say that I am feeling great and have had no problems (besides hemi's) getting up and moving around or with depression.

    I used it during labor and in my immediate postpartum period. My doula was pouring it into me My 2nd midwife was also giving me homeopathic chamomile. I don't think that it helped me at all in labor, and can't really say that it helped me afterwards, either.

    I don't know about specifically for labor, but I've used it when emotional things get overwhelming, or I get very stressed, and it has helped in the past.

    My midwife gave me some flower essences, but not Bach's Rescue Remedy, during labor. She carries a set of about 18 vials of different essences & will mix & match for exactly what you need at that moment. I know she gave me something at one time that helped me get some sleep, and another when I was refusing to eat anything, and when we were getting ready to transfer, she gave me one for "acceptance." I think they helped, I slept, I ate, and I was OK with the transfer. Would I have slept, eaten, and been OK iwth transferring without the flower essences? Maybe, eventually, but the fact that I wasn't sleeping or eating enough to concern her makes me wonder.
