OBSTETRICS IN THE CONGO. Caulophyllum is our most frequently used remedy in labor here and is a sure shot for stopping pains, if false, or increasing them, if it is true labor, and has saved us from many unnecessary trips to attend normal cases, for we do not like to see normal cases if we can avoid it. Many times we send Caul. 3x to a case we have not seen, with instructions to bring word again within a few hours if the baby has not been born.
