Ferrum phos [Ferr-p]
“I am in the habit of giving this remedy after parturition with marked relief of after-pains, and preventive of the fever of lactation.” (W.M.

Feeble and ineffectual labor-pains, spurious labor-pains. Tedious labor from constitutional weakness; this remedy gives vigor and helps materially. Labor- pains weak and irregular. Rigid os, with thick, doughy lips, patient restless, tearful and nervous. “For three years I have employed Kali phos4. in doses the size of a bean, dry on the tongue, every ten or fifteen minutes, as a remedy to excite labor-pains. It has never failed me, and I seldom have to give the third dose. My practice is extensive; have had over ninety cases in six years. Magnesia phos., in spasmodic pains and eclampsia, has done well for me. I give generally after birth Ferrum phos., a dose daily, to avoid inflammation.” (Dr. Rozas, Pop. Zeit., April, 1887.) After pains usually the best remedy. If given steadily several weeks before labor, confinement is less painful.

LABOR CASES [Labor cases]
“The better acquainted I become with this system the more pleased I am with it. In labor, when the pains are too weak and irregular, I have seen nothing act more promptly and effectually than Kali phos. For spasmodic, crampy pains, Magnesia phos. is a gem. After a delivery, I give Ferrum phos., where I used to give Aconite and Actea rac., to be followed or accompanied by whatever may be indicated. I also use as a wash 3x to the vulva and abdomen, and for syringing the vagina morning and night. The parts heal quickly under this treatment, and with the use of other remedies, as indicated, the patient makes a good recovery.” Eclectic Medical Journal, E.H. Holbrook, M.D.
A Portuguese house servant, mother of three healthy children, had not been well from the beginning of her fourth pregnancy. About six weeks before full time she was threatened with a miscarriage. Had passed water and blood; the pains were severer and well directed; the os was dilating, and I felt so positive that labor was unavoidable that I advised her to keep about her duties, and gave her Kali phosphoricum 6x to help her along. To my great surprise the pain ceased, and she went on to full term. I then delivered her of a scrawny, undersized child which lived three days. (T. C. Wiggins, M.D).
