Maternal Care

Birth, in all its myriad ways of happening, is a big and wonderful event! It can also be both physically and emotionally challenging. It takes time to recover from any test of endurance, and especially when you are also caring for your beautiful brand new baby. We have helped many women in the postpartum phase heal and regain their strength after birth or recover from Cesarean surgery, and we can help you, too!

Contrary to popular belief, the postpartum period is not just the time you are able to take off work. There are three phases during this period: 6-12 hours after birth, 2-6 weeks after birth, and through 6 months after birth. The woman’s body has mostly returned to its pre-pregnancy state by 6 months, though for some women it can take longer, even up to 2 years. Taking good care of yourself during this time is so important.

We also provide lactation support by helping your milk come in and flow freely. Acupuncture is effective in stimulating milk production and relieving clogged ducts, as well as relieving engorgement or calming mastitis.

Postpartum emotional support is very important and acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine (that is safe for breastfeeding) can help you feel more like yourself and prevent postpartum blues. We also offer lifestyle and nutritional support to improve recovery time. Whether it is pelvic pain, exhaustion, or downright blues, acupuncture can help balance hormones, reduce soreness, and stabilize mood.

Pediatric Care

If your new little one is going through a healing opportunity, we can help him or her move through as quickly and comfortably as possible! Babies bounce back so fast and the treatments are very gentle. Often we treat them while they sleep in Mama’s or Papa’s arms, and it can even be done during your session. The techniques we use are so mild they typically don’t disturb sleeping babies and frequently we incorporate non-needle options such as pediatric tui na and lasers. Babies are welcome!
We can help with:
  • Diaper Rash
  • Colicky Bellies
  • Fussing That Isn’t Easily Quieted
  • Not Sleeping Well
  • Colds or Runny Noses
  • Ear Infections
  • Vaccination “Flu” Recovery
