Chinese Medicine believes that there are specific imbalances that can result in a miscarriage and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL). Acupuncture has helped women correct these underlying conditions to promote full term pregnancies and live births. After identifying the specific factors that have caused a woman’s miscarriage to occur, we create a treatment plan to help the body return to normal function. Chinese medicine and Acupuncture have helped many women deliver healthy babies who had experienced miscarriage due to:
• Unknown Factors
• Hormonal Imbalances
• Blood Clotting disorders
• Autoimmune disorders
• Supposed Egg Quality deficiencies
Treatment Suggestion and Frequency:
The direction of support and treatment varies dependant on an individuals history with miscarriage along with their current health, however, the general rule of thumb is 3-6 months of treatment prior to natural or assisted conception.
A 3-month minimum is the time it takes to balance and regulate the reproductive system so that healthy eggs are produced. Acupuncture treatments are typically performed weekly and Chinese herbal formulas are added to further balance the body.
Once you become pregnant your care is transitioned from our Fertility Enhancement Program to our Maintaining Pregnancy Program this involves weekly treatments and increased correspondence with Dr. Abbs until you reach 12-14 weeks in your pregnancy.
This frequency of treatment allows us to nurture the growth and development of the baby while maintaining balance and alignment of the mother, providing the foundations for a successful pregnancy and healthy baby.
