I was asked by a second-time mother if she and her husband could come over and see what we could do about her hip pain. The pain went from the hip across the lower back at that level. She had it in the first pregnancy and this one, and was due in a month and was weary from such pain when ever she got up or down.
I warned her that I was not a body worker but they could come on over.
Watching her sit and move for a minute helped me to realize she had sciatica. I learned about a wonderful remedy for sciatica from my sister who suffered terribly, almost loosing her job and ending up in the ER before she tried homeopathic kali carbonicum 30 c. I carry “kali carb” in my midwifery bag. Ronnie Falcao has a list of homeopathy resources on her midwifery site.
