Postpartum

Welcoming a new baby into the world is a huge task, one that requires much support.


Are you recovering from a difficult labor and delivery? Are you experiencing postpartum insomnia, anxiety, depression or other emotional concerns? Are you dealing with lactation issues or other postpartum challenges?

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have much to offer you during the postpartum period. Recovering from labor and delivery involves a big hormonal transition, as well as physical and emotional changes that should be carefully tended.

We offer treatments that can help with your post-birth recovery and help you restore your body and mind so that you are better prepared to meet the needs of your newborn. Creating this delicate balance—ensuring that the mother is well taken care of so that the baby may also thrive—is what we can help you achieve during this uniquely challenging and beautifully tender postpartum period.

Our treatments can address postpartum concerns, including:

  • Breast feeding difficulties such as insufficient milk supply or mastitis
  • Pain such as uterine after-pains, aches and pains, abdominal pain, joint pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Persistent lochia discharge (vaginal bleeding that lasts longer than 3–4 weeks postpartum)
  • Urinary difficulty
  • Constipation, hemorrhoids, or other digestive issues
  • General birth recovery to restore health and wellness

Women who receive adequate care postpartum are less likely to experience reproductive health issues in the future, and are more likely to experience greater health and vitality both immediately and in the long term, as well as greater ease and satisfaction in mothering.

Make this special time with your new baby more comfortable and enjoyable for all involved. Learn how we can help.
