Pregnancy & Acupuncture

Pregnancy is a unique time in a woman's life for enhancing her health and wellbeing not only for the health of the baby but for her own long term health. Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs work by harmonizing the mind and body having a significant and positive impact on mother and baby's health. Regular treatments provide both physical and emotional support in a safe, gentle, and effective way during pregnancy.

Prenatal Acupuncture

Regular acupuncture throughout pregnancy sets a foundation for a positive and healthy labor, delivery and postpartum recovery. Prenatal treatments once a month are encouraged for every pregnant woman. In the last month of pregnancy, weekly treatments have shown to reduce the need for medical inductions, decrease epidural rates and decrease cesarean sections. These prenatal treatments also help boost the mother's energy and prepare both baby and mother for a positive, healthy labor, delivery and postpartum recovery.

Prenatal Acupuncture can help with:

  • Anxiety/depression
  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Colds and Flu
  • Constipation
  • Edema
  • Heartburn

Postnatal Acupuncture

Postpartum care is especially important for the mother's long term health. After having a baby every woman needs to find balance once again in her body and mind while caring for her newborn. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help to restore the physical and energetic resources spent during pregnancy and labor and work with mom to find that balance.
