Continuing your acupuncture sessions during the fourth trimester can help with recovery management, reduce stress and fatigue. Self care during this period of time is essential for a new mother’s physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing.
Initially, acupuncture can help you recover from your labour and any lingering conditions from your pregnancy. But as you enter further into the postnatal period it is important to address new conditions such as hormonal changes and imbalances, back, neck and shoulder pain (often from breastfeeding positions and holding baby for long periods of time), lactation concerns, fatigue and other early parenting challenges.
If you aren’t ready or able to leave your little one at home you are welcome to bring them to your postnatal acupuncture sessions. We love to have a little cuddle!
We work to heal and nourish your postnatal body, and as it has done an amazing job of supporting you during pregnancy and birth. We also aim to renew and balance your postnatal emotional health and well being. You will be ready to face the challenges of parenting with a renewal of energy and a rested, well balanced spirit.
