The postpartum period is an opportunistic time for a woman to rebuild and regain essence, blood and qi which for 9+ months was directed to growing a baby. Chinese medicine strongly adheres to the belief that the first month be devoted to resting, healing and bonding with baby. In alignment with this idea, I offer postpartum house calls to give moms nurturing care without leaving their home.
Moxibustion (warming therapy) is the traditional Chinese method to supplement core energy and revitalize the mother’s system after giving birth. Chinese medicine also treats other postpartum complaints like low milk supply, mastitis, fatigue, depression, constipation, indigestion, dizziness, hair loss, night sweats, incontinence, retained placenta, after-birth cramps and pain.
