Local Experts in Postpartum Support & Recovery
As a doctor, I'm trained in the more concrete troubles of lactation, strange menstrual cycles, diastasis recti, and daily life concerns. As a natural childbirth expert, my training focuses on family dynamic, navigating the healthcare system, and finding resources to support each family where they are. As a postpartum doula I support mothers emotionally and connect them to their village.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines to support new mamas during their postpartum period, including Mother Roasting (burning moxa to warm a new mother and help the uterus return to it\'s pre-pregnancy size) if a home visit is available. We offer lots of support for breastfeeding as well.
Acupuncture can help to restore vitality and balance to the body. It can help with milk production, decrease stress and ease symptoms of postpartum depression and anxiety. I understand the importance of self care during this time and feel that acupuncture and East Asian medicine can be an extremely helpful tool.
It is my experience that a woman's postpartum recovery time can range anywhere from 3 months to 3 years. Becoming a parent is joyful and also exhausting. Acupuncture is a phenomenal way to nourish yourself so you can continue to give back to your family.
After labor and astream of endless doctor’s appointments a lot of new moms are left on their own to cope with postpartum recovery and the transition to motherhood. Momcore is a resource for new moms looking for support and help safely strengthening and stabilizing their core and bodies after birth. For anyone suffering from instability, low back pain, pelvic floor issues this program is for you.
Prior to becoming an acupuncturist, I volunteered and worked for Baby Blues Connection to help moms and families in postpartum support and recovery. Through my own experience I found a new passion to help families through this transition. I have found acupuncture to help with physical, emotional and other aspects to bring about joy and ease.
Pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding all place huge demands on the body. Combine that with the interrupted sleep and round the clock needs of a newborn and new parents can often find themselves worn down and depleted. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help reduce stress and nourish the body during this time. After all, we must nourish ourselves to nourish our families.
