5 Homeopathic remedies for postpartum insomnia

5 Homeopathic remedies for postpartum insomnia

What if there was a magic pill to help you get to sleep faster? And all-natural?

In this post, I’ll share the life-changing homeopathic remedies to help you get to sleep faster – without medications.

And the benefit?

Homeopathy is safe if you’re pregnant, and breastfeeding and it’s really safe for kids of all ages. So if your children happen to get into your homeopathic medicine, it’s ok. There’s no harm done.

But, wait. We also want to get to the root cause of why you’re not sleeping, because when you don’t sleep anxiety and depression set it.

And..the challenging part of homeopathy is it’s hard to choose the right remedy. So, it takes patience and time to learn which remedy is the right one for your body.

One more thing… the body needs deep nourishment after birth. So you may need more than homeopathy to help cure your anxiety, but this is a great first step.


First, here are some homeopathic principles to consider:

  • the homeopathic remedy is based on YOUR unique symptoms
  • these symptoms can change and WILL when you find the right remedy
  • sometimes your symptoms get worse before they get better
  • BUT, the symptoms should always move outward {i.e. vomiting, diarrhea, fever etc. }
  • stop dosing the remedy when your symptoms change
  • if you don’t see a shift or a change, like going to sleep, it could be the wrong remedy
  • always watch and wait
  • note the time that you wake up at night, to find the correct remedy
  • always purchase 6 or 30c if you’re not working with a trained homeopath

Let’s get started.

So, what is postpartum Insomnia?

Postpartum insomnia can occur after any pregnancy. I say pregnancy because if you’ve had a miscarriage, you could still struggle with insomnia due to the hormone shifts you’re experiencing.

Insomnia can occur anytime after your pregnancy, but often women notice when they stop breastfeeding or when their child is 3+ months.

Because hormones are involved, occasionally homeopathy does not work. See my youtube channel for more remedies to heal postpartum adrenal fatigue.

So, what are the secret remedies? Here are five of my favorite remedies for insomnia. Write down your unique symptom first, then look for a remedy below.

Best homeopathic remedy for insomnia

I do love the homeopathic blend Sleep Calm FOUND HERE. It’s a nice blend that includes a passionflower to help calm the “monkey mind” or to shut your brain off so the thoughts quiet down. Let me know if you try it!


Homeopathy is a safe, effective way to get to sleep fast. But, keep in mind, that it’s hard to choose the right remedy and the remedies are based on your unique symptoms. There are many more to choose from if these do not work and it’s best to take a homeopathic course to learn the unique strategies of dosing. The best thing to do is to write down your symptoms every night and then highlight the unique symptom that is strange, rare, and unusual for you. Then, search for the one remedy that matches this unique symptom.
