You've worked so hard to get here, now our treatment plan is to support a healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture can help increase blood flow to the uterus, decrease side effects of pregnancy symptoms such as insomnia, mood swings, nausea or vomiting and constipation. Acupuncture can prepare you for labor by helping turn a breech baby, induce labor naturally, decrease your chances of intervention, and decrease labor time. Modern Oriental Medicine can provide resources and connect you to the birthing community for labor prep/support such as doulas, pelvic floor physical therapists, chiropractors or energy workers to work in conjunction with us for you and baby's best outcomes.
We often talk about pregnancy in terms of three trimesters. But after your baby is out in the world, surprise! You have to deal with even more physical and mental changes. There’s a term for that phase of parenthood: "the 4th trimester." It's important to acknowledge that birthing people are dealing with a whole lot internally and externally. All while taking care of a tiny human. Postpartum Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help with
the recovery process after birth, support milk production and hormonal balance, – all essential to a happier postpartum mama and baby. When a mom feels grounded, this creates less anxiety, stress and can reduce the risk of postpartum depression.
