Labor Tincture – Elina & Morechai David from Israel

Sensitivity alert – this is a story from a client who miscarried. 

Dear Pam,  We cannot thank you enough for the support that you gave us through one of the most difficult events in our lives. Today, we found out from our doctor that my uterus is clean, that the sac came out (thank G-d!!) and I no longer need a D&C. Woooohooooo!!!!  We were immensely grateful that someone who we have never met in person before gave us so much support – emotionally and professionally.

In the end, we took the Labor Tincture for an entire day. Nothing much happened that day. The next day we went to purchase a tree as a memorial to our lost baby and in the middle of the plant store, my contractions began. Somehow, my body knew that this purchase was the final goodbye and it started to let go. Thank you for the suggestion to hold a ceremony and allow our grieving, which was the final release.

We went home from the plant store and the contractions were intense. For 3-4 hours, I was having immense contractions and then suddenly, I birthed the sac. I felt it and right after the birthing, my entire being went into a phase of relief. I knew then that it was done and my heart was so grateful that 1) we were guided so beautifully by you, and 2) my body did what it knows to do (with the help of the herbs). 

Once the sac was birthed, I was filled with energy!  It happened to be the night of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. It was 4 pm when everything came out and by 4:30 pm, I felt so good, I was helping my husband cook for the holiday. To start the new year with this newfound emptiness inside myself was miraculous and the greatest gift. We would have not known what to do without your advice and willingness to help us. You are truly an angel. 

We can never express our gratitude in words. In a time when I was ready to give up, you filled me with hope and the means by which to achieve that hope. Because of our email exchanges, we were able to ask the doctors smarter questions and challenge their own way of approaching this issue. We were able to hold onto the vision that our baby would have a natural departure and that my body would be saved in the process. A million thank yous for everything you did for us and our greatest appreciation for who you are in the world.

We hope to meet you someday and wish you every possible happiness in the world.

With gratitude, E. & M.D.N.
