Came across this note by a midwife somewhere, perhaps Midwifery Today, or a yahoo group for midwives I’m a part of. Thought it might be useful for those who have had a postpartum hemorrhage before.
Utrophine is a uterine glandular developed to feed the uterus. When I have moms with babies close together, or a previously sluggish labor, I have them take it through the next pregnancy. Don’t know if it’s coincidental, but the next labor goes well and I’ve not seen a PPH.
Here’s another one from Midwifery Today’s E-News 11:19 regarding prolapsed uterus and postpartum hemorrhage.
I have found that Utrophin PMG and Ligaplex II, both Standard Process products, work very well for restoring the uterus after prolapse. I have a mother whose uterus prolapsed, actually coming inside out with severe hemorrhaging after her 11th birth. We used the two products (after resting the uterus for over a year between pregnancies) and her 12th and 13th births have been wonderful. She also was able to carry the babies much higher, whereas before she had carried them very low for at least three months before delivery.
Here is an article by a company who sells Utrophin PMG, along with more information about this supplement can protect your uterus. If you are interested in purchasing some for yourself, I think you will need a referral from a healthcare professional who has an account with Standard Process, which you can find through their website, or you may able to find some elsewhere by googling Utrophin PMG.
