Acupuncture for Obstetrics
Acupuncture is safe and gentle in helping you through pregnancy. Acupuncture has the benefit of increased prevention of early miscarriage and relief of accompanying symptoms during pregnancy such as morning sickness, fatigue, back pain, and swollen legs.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, postpartum care is extremely important for all women. After birth the first month is crucial for the recovery of the mother’s health. In China, we literally call the first month the “sitting month” which is the time needed to avoid and prevent postpartum symptoms due to the mother's relatively weak constitution after giving birth.
A good “sitting month” will greatly help the mother provide the nutrition that the baby requires. It can significantly improve the baby's immune system during the crucial stages of development. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are applied during the first month to speed up the recovery process and improve immunity.
We at Y & Y Acupuncture and Chiropractic provide comprehensive care from acupuncture to Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition, and chiropractic care according to each patient's condition.
