Acupuncture for Pregnancy

Traditional Chinese medicine offers a natural means of safeguarding healthy pregnancies that is safe for a mother and her baby. Pregnancy is a new and special time in a woman's life. It is a time when a woman begins to understand that she is supporting not only herself, but also creating and nurturing another life. Chinese medicine can ease a woman through the many physical and emotional changes that occur during each trimester of her pregnancy and help to ensure a comfortable and healthy pregnancy. As she approaches her due date, weekly acupuncture treatments can help prepare a mother for a smooth labor by relaxing the pelvic floor muscles, helping the baby lower into position, and alleviating anxiety and stress. Acupuncture can also be an effective tool to enhance labor.

Acupuncture for Post Partum Recovery

Chinese medicine can be an invaluable tool during post-partum recovery. According to the principles of Chinese medicine, a new mother loses much of her vital energy during childbirth. The post partum period is an important time for her to regain her energy and strength so that she can continue to care for herself and her new baby.
