Postpartum Acupuncture

Once your little one arrives most of everyone’s attention is appropriately focused on your new baby, it is essential to remember:
Healthy and Happy Mama = a Healthy and Happy Baby.
The two go together. The transition into motherhood is a glorious and indescribable experience, but it’s important that women continue to nurture that sprit and energy that got them to this place. It doesn’t just go away until you want to call on it again when you want another child. Your body has been through a tremendous amount of stress; Sleep loss, blood loss, hormonal shifts, and nursing can leave you exhausted and overwhelmed. Your body, mind and spirit need to recover
The main part of conscious parenting that gets forgotten is the self-care that is required for mothers. Our sessions are left wide open and directions are based on the individual needs that you require support in.

Treatment Suggestion and Frequency:

The frequency of sessions is flexible to ensure you get the attention that you need. If symptoms are acute and require immediate attention it will be advised to establish a weekly treatment until issues have alleviated. When this occurs, most Mama’s establish a treatment every 4-6 weeks to ensure balance and self-care are made a priority.
