During postpartum, the wellness of the mother is often overlooked in favor of the baby. The tremendous amount of energy and resources required to nurture a healthy pregnancy and the extreme endurance and courage harnessed during labor and delivery, makes the month/months, following birth very important in order for mom to recoup her strength and stave off future imbalances. This is your opportunity to replenish what your body has lost the right way.
Acupuncture treatments, herbs and proper nutritional habits are of paramount importance to regain strength, improve milk production, decrease pain, correct the emotional imbalances that happen with the drastic drop in hormones, to prepare you for for next pregnancy and to age gracefully.
