 motherwort tincture during pregnancy
 Motherwort tincture during pregnancy does not apply. If an obstetrician-gynecologist believes that women need it motherwort, he may designate this drug as an aqueous infusion. The problem is that motherwort acts slowly and need to take it three to four weeks, during which time the alcohol contained in the droplets may have a negative effect on the fetus.


Leonurus calming effect on the body of a pregnant woman

Motherwort has a strong calming (sedative) effect, which is several times greater than the effect of valerian root. But in order for the effect to be stable, it is necessary to take a long time, usually at least a month.

Some women during pregnancy become very excitable, which may adversely affect the condition of the fetus. Increased anxiety leads to sleep disorders Dreams: how to understand our dreams  Dreams: how to understand our dreams
   and the formation of neuroses.

Nerve stimulation can trigger a spasm of muscles of the uterus (uterine hypertonus), and this will entail a number of negative consequences, such as squeezing muscles spasm of the blood vessels carrying blood to the placenta and fetus. Fruit will receive less nutrients lag behind in development and lack of oxygen can lead to severe irreversible changes in the brain.

In such cases, an obstetrician-gynecologist or therapist prenatal appoints water extracts of Leonurus. Motherwort tincture can be taken several times without harming the woman and the fetus, but it will not be an effective treatment, but long-term use of the dosage form motherwort can certainly affect the condition of the fetus.

But the water extracts of Leonurus pregnant women not always shown. For example, if a woman concerned about persistent constipation (they are caused by female sex hormone progesterone), motherwort them will only strengthen, suppress the activity of the autonomic nervous system. The same effect is at urinary retention. Therefore, a pregnant woman can not afford to take motherwort on their own without a doctor's prescription.

But in addition to this regulatory and soothing effect motherwort has also hypotensive effect, which means it lowers blood pressure Blood pressure - dangerous if his swing?  Blood pressure - dangerous if his swing?
 . In some women, it has a positive effect, slightly lowering blood pressure, prone to increase.

But very often during pregnancy blood pressure is low, which is accompanied by headaches, dizziness Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet  Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
 And in severe cases, impaired placental circulation with all the consequences in the form of a lag in the development of the fetus and the violations had cerebral circulation. Under these conditions motherwort contraindicated. This confirms once again that the decision to appoint the doctor must take motherwort.


Action Leonurus cardiac function during pregnancy

During pregnancy, the heart carries a double burden, so the heart muscle often works hard trying to pump blood in time. If the heart muscle does not maintain such a load, a woman can appear swelling, and tachycardia.

Motherwort in this case can have a positive impact as it has cardiotonic effect: causes the heart muscle to contract more forcefully and less. This action is a result of the content in small amounts of Motherwort glycosides. It is possible that such a small support for the pregnant woman will be enough to handle the load.

But sometimes during pregnancy aggravated heart disease who were before pregnancy. It may be myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), cardio (exchange-dystrophic diseases of the heart muscle), etc. Against the background of these diseases often develop abnormal heart rhythms, including bradycardia Bradycardia - when the heart stops  Bradycardia - when the heart stops
   (slow heart rate). In this case, it is not necessary to take motherwort.


Can motherwort cause fetal abnormalities?

Motherwort often used in obstetric practice and today teratogenic effects (ability to cause abnormal development) had been identified. But do not take risks and take motherwort in the first twelve weeks of pregnancy, when there is a tab organs and tissues - in this period it is better not to take any medications, including herbal.
