ACUPUNCTURE AND OBSTETRICS
Acupuncture safely and naturally treats all pregnancy conditions in a calming, nurturing manner. Each treatment is designed to make both mother and baby stronger for the remainder of pregnancy, delivery, and thereafter. Common pregnancy concerns treated successfully are:
All Aches and Pains
Nausea and Vomiting
Anxiety and Depression
Decreases Miscarriage Rates
Boosts Immune System
In preparation for birth we work to empower you with knowledge for a safe, natural labor and address concerns and anxiety. Lisa specializes in VBACs, breeched baby, and past due dates with much success. Acupuncture naturally decreases pain and increases stamina during labor when performed regularly during pregnancy, or in close succession near your due date. Weeks leading up to your due date, acupuncture will soften the cervix, and encourage the body towards natural labor and delivery. The most optimal circumstances are created in your body via acupuncture, giving you the support and courage needed for the safest birth possible.
Postpartum care takes ancient methods that are still applicable in these modern times to regain and maintain health after childbirth. These include mother roasting, setting the sacrum, and binding the body back into place - all done in a ritualistic, nurturing manner to honor the body's birthing process. Deep relaxation is experienced, fortifying both Mother and Baby, making each calmer and happier with stronger immune systems. Recovery rates are faster, for both vaginal and cesarian births with proper postpartum care and support provided by these soothing techniques.
