After Baby – Postpartum Care
Although post-delivery is a very busy and exciting time, we still encourage acupuncture treatments after the baby arrives! The restoration of the mother’s health is imperative for well being and helps with the ability to be present with the newborn. The health and energy of both parents are important, we offer postpartum care for the entire family. The use of Chinese medicine to address the below issues is a common treatment focus after delivery.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be an *invaluable* part of post-labor recovery:
Chinese medicine is a wonderful way to restore health and energy of the mother (and both parents) after delivery. We help to support and replenish a new family’s healing process.
Chinese medical theory states that a woman does not fully recover until at least 4 months after childbirth with the first month being the most important time for self care. Honoring this tradition will ensure better future health and vitality. In addition to supporting general health and vitality during this time with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can also help with the issues below:
Acupuncture and Chinese herbals can be essential in the first year of baby for these issues:
- Reduces anxiety
- Helps promote calm and positive moods
- Improves sleep quality
- Supports healthy thyroid/pituitary function for hormone balance
- Promotes appetite and digestion
- Eases body aches and muscle spasms, before they become chronic pain patterns such as the “baby back” low back pain and the nursing “hunch”
Taking good care after childbirth is not only imperative for future health but is also essential for the next babies. Getting acupuncture during this time is a great way to feel more centered and rested and health ready for the future.
Please schedule an appointment for a postpartum assessment.
We look forward to working with you!
Most amazing place! I call this place family
Beth, has been a terrific family member and to me a true fertility specialist that even when seeing 3-4 doctors in a week she by far outweighed her support, knowledge and full dedication to my fertility and accomplishing the goal of having a baby. I am so honored to work with Beth and continue to work with her for life goals and stress management. She is truly an angel and marvelous!”
