There’s nothing more important to you than your developing baby. Whether you just found out you’re pregnant and experiencing morning sickness or you’re almost due and preparing for childbirth, it is always a great time to take part in my pregnancy program!
I’ve developed a program to support expectant mothers throughout their entire pregnancies and into their postpartum. Here’s what it entails and how it works:
Acupuncture calms the sympathetic nervous system making the mom more relaxed, sleep better, and have more energy which benefits the baby as well.
Acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus which nourishes the baby.
Acupuncture boosts the immune system.
Acupuncture increases your chances of delivering on time without medications or emergency medical intervention.
Acupuncture can re-position babies in the breech or posterior positions.
Treatments consist of weekly acupuncture treatments. Chinese herbal medicine may be given also. The following pregnancy-related conditions will be addressed:
Treatments consist of acupuncture every two to four weeks. The following pregnancy-related conditions will be addressed:
Treatments consist of acupuncture every two weeks. The following pregnancy-related conditions will be addressed:
These sessions are very popular! Treatments consist of weekly acupuncture sessions until birth. The treatments will aim for:
The benefits continue on after the baby arrives with post-partum recovery by re-building the body’s energy and blood. Acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine helps facilitate milk production, relieve postpartum fatigue & depression, and balances the huge hormone transition. The mom can feel like herself again!
Frequency of visits will vary depending on the particular situation of the mother but typically are weekly treatments that begin two weeks post-birth for approximately three to four weeks. Treatment will include Chinese herbal medicine and/or acupuncture visits to address the following:
Acupuncture and moxibustion (the warming of a specific acupuncture point with an herbal stick) can be helpful to support optimal positioning for your baby. This helps babies who are breech or transverse, posterior at 37 weeks, or a baby at 40 weeks who has not yet descended.
The treatments work by opening the pelvis, increasing the free flow of energy, lowering stress levels and increasing the fetal movement so that the condition will be optimal for the baby to move into the correct position.
The treatments are extremely safe, gentle and non-invasive.
