Pregnancy

During pregnancy your body and hormones are changing so rapidly that it's hard to keep up.  Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have a lot to offer for every trimester.  Here are just a few things that we could work on.  Nausea and vomiting or bleeding in the first trimester, body pain as your grow, stress relief from hormone fluctuations, support with gestational diabetes, labor preparation or just a place to land to integrate your rapidly changing life.

Don't forget to seek treatment after your baby is born.  The 3-4 months after the birth is considered the 4th Trimester.  Birth itself is like running a marathon except you don't get to sit in the post race tent to drink beer.  Consider treatment your post marathon (necessary) reward. Treatment focuses on replenishing lost blood and essence, helping with milk supply, balancing out any birth injuries or helping with c-section scars. Again having a place to land and integrate is also worth it's weight in gold.
