      This paper discusses a follow up study that used a semi-structured interview technique to further explore the experiences of women and their partners following the use of a specifically chosen homeopathic kit that included ten remedies that were self-administered.The interview data demonstrated that women and several birth partners experienced positive emotional, psychological and physical benefits from using the kit of homeopathic remedies. Implications: Self administered homeopathic remedies have the potential to promote a women-led approach to childbirth and an active supportive role for the birth partner. The findings will form the foundations to undertake further research in this field.
