Postpartum Care

The postpartum period is a life transition unlike any other.  Whether you are a first time mother or having a second or third child, your body and psyche are undergoing tremendous physiological transformations at the same time as you are adjusting to a new constellation of family relationships.  East Asian Medicine and holistic medicine can ease the journey.  Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine have been proven to boost milk supply, help with painful breasts, engorgment, mastitis, failure to thrive, organ prolapse, fatigue, postpartum mood disorders, healing, prolonged bleeding, pain, and other common postpartum complaints.  Because of the urgent nature of some postpartum concerns, I am available outside my regular hours by appointment.
