Q&A Preterm Labor

Hey Dr. Karen,
I have a patient that is just 29 weeks along and is in premature labor.  She is 2 cm, 50% and her cervix is ripe.  Do you know of any tricks, herbs or homeopathics that can stop her labor.  She is taking Black Haw and that has lessened the contractions a lot, but not stopped them.
I appreciate your help.  Thanks!
Dr. Jenn
Hi Dr. Jenn,
It is VERY common for pre-term labor in the summer months because of how easy it is to get dehydrated.  Make sure mom is drinking TONS (I really means TONS) of water.  Black haw is a good herb, so is cramp bark.  Maybe you recommend that she could try that one as well.
As far a homeopathy goes, arnica montana is the first that comes to mind then Belladonna.  I highly recommend that she clears these recommendations with her primary birth practitioner, though. Don’t forget, you can get a TON more information in my class on Herbs and Homeopathy. The previous link will save you 10% on tuition should you decide to join up. 
Mom MUST stay off of her feet, too.  Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.  Thanks for trusting me with your valuable practice member.  I consider it an honor. 
Love & Gratitude
