Pregnancy brings about many physical and emotional changes, as well as a number of potential health problems.

The majority of these ailments are generally considered to be ‘par for the course’; they are not easily alleviated by western medicine.

Since many conventional pharmaceuticals cannot be used during pregnancy, acupuncture may be especially helpful at this time.

Postpartum Recovery

Chinese medicine is an invaluable tool during postpartum recovery.

According to the principles of Chinese medicine, a new mother loses much of her vital energy during childbirth. This is what can cause extreme fatigue and emotional distress.

The postpartum period is an important time for her to regain her energy and strength so that she can continue to care for herself and her new baby.
