With so much information and research devoted to fertility and the maintenance of a healthy pregnancy, it is easy to overlook the post-partum period. This too is a period of great hormonal upheaval and your body deserves a support network dedicated to helping you recover from labor and birth. Traditional Chinese Medicine dictates that a new mother’s qi and blood flow is significantly lowered after delivery. Besides treating post-partum and regulating hormonal imbalance, acupuncture after birth focuses on returning blood flow to the entire body and maximizing her qi.
It can stimulate milk production and is beneficial for many common post-partum ailments including:
- Depression and anxiety
- C-section recovery
Receiving acupuncture treatment after birth is just as vital to a new mother as it is to a woman in the throes of the second trimester. At Community Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we are experienced in using acupuncture to increase the mother’s flow of healing energy. I can offer you professional perspective and insight that will give you a better understanding of what your body is going through and how you can participate in returning your body to a state of ideal reproductive health.
Congratulations on your new child! Let us help you to fully access the wonders of newfound motherhood by keeping your body in a state of good health and recovery. Call our office in Park Slope at (718) 398-3100.
