Pregnancy & Maternal Health

As fellow moms and doulas, working with pregnant women and new moms holds a special place in our hearts.

Pregnancy

With the tools of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, along with a deep well of knowledge of dietary and lifestyle therapies that benefit pregnant women, we help safeguard pregnancies and ease women through the many physical and emotional changes of each trimester. From morning sickness to labor preparation, Chinese medicine is a remarkably gentle yet effective tool for addressing many symptoms that arise during pregnancy.

Common Pregnancy Conditions we see:

  • Miscarriage Prevention
  • Morning Sickness
  • Fatigue
  • Colds and Sinus Congestion
  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Insomnia
  • Anemia
  • Constipation
  • Heartburn
  • Hemmorhoids
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Preeclampsia
  • Low/High Amniotic Fluid
  • Varicose Veins
  • Edema
  • Back and Body Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Breech Presentation
  • Labor Preparation

Maternal Health

We love caring for a new mom so that she can care for her new baby. According to the principles of Chinese medicine, during childbirth a mother quite literally gives away much of her vital energy. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can support, heal and strengthen a new mother during the post-partum period.

Common Post Partum Conditions we see:

  • Body Aches and Pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Mastitis
  • Insufficient Lactation
  • Hemmorhoids
  • Healing from Incisions
  • Sweating
