PageLines- bmw-2.jpgAs this ever changing world continues to get more complicated by modern technology and medicine, more and more women are choosing natural methods to aid them in experiencing health and well-being through their pregnancies and births. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used in China for thousands of years to help regulate the female reproductive system and can be combined easily with modern midwifery to achieve balance and health for women during their entire birthing journey from pre-conception to post-partum.

Healthy Pregnancy

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help the body to achieve a healthy balance and regular pre-natal visits can help to maintain this with monthly or weekly acupuncture treatments tailored specifically to each woman’s individual needs. Acupuncture several weeks before your due date can help reduce the risks of going too far past the due date. We call this “Pre-Birth Acupuncture.”

Pregnancy Challenges

Sometimes pregnancy brings challenges and complications and acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help alleviate or correct these using methods that are safe for both mom and baby. Some of these challenges include:

    • Morning Sickness
    • Back Pain
    • Sciatica
    • Breech Presentation
    • Anxiety
    • Fatigue
    • Heartburn
    • Insomnia
    • Constipation
    • Edema
    • Urinary Infections
    • Early Contractions
    • Colds/Flu


Acupuncture During Birth

A woman’s body is perfectly capable of birthing a baby all on its own without any intervention, but the small percent of women who may need intervention can use acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for natural assistance. Some of these needs might be:

    • Malpresentation
    • Labor Discomfort
    • Anxiety
    • Fatigue
    • Difficult Labor


Postpartum Care

After a baby is born it is extremely important to replenish the energy and health of the mother. There are many changes both physically and emotionally that take place during pregnancy and childbirth and acupuncture and Chinese medicine can provide support naturally for this time as well as treat conditions associated with  postpartum. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can treat:

  • Mastitis
  • Insufficient Lactation
  •  Excessive Lactation
  • Postpartum Depression
  • Edema
  • Postpartum Bleeding
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia

Acupuncture and Midwifery

Although acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used in a western medical obstetric setting, the philosophy in Chinese medicine compliments the Midwifery model of care. Our belief in Chinese Medicine is that each person is an individual, intricate being and should be treated in whatever way works with her body. Rather than force the process, we gently flow with it to provide each woman with her own optimal experience.
