Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine While Pregnant
Growing a baby is no small feat. From the moment of conception, your body is put under tremendous demand and is literally working and changing daily for almost 10 months. Although pregnancy can be a time of great joy, with all of the fast paced changes and demands, it may also contribute to some new and unique challenges for parents-to-be.
From conception through pregnancy and postpartum, acupuncture and integrative medicine can support new parents in thriving. We use a variety of tools ranging from gentle acupuncture, nutrition therapy, herbal and supplemental medicine, lifestyle evaluation and lab testing to put together customized treatment plans designed to support each of our patients unique needs.
The arrival of baby can be simultaneously thrilling, shocking and downright exhausting. Although many new parents-to-be spend months preparing for for pregnancy and delivery, most women are surprised and perhaps a little unprepared for the changes that come after baby is born. Self-care postpartum is essential to a comfortable recovery.
