Just as acupuncture assists in maintaining a woman’s health during pregnancy, it is excellent for bringing a new mother’s body back into balance after labor and childbirth. Having an acupuncture treatment 3-4 days after delivery can be greatly beneficial for maintaining the healing process.
Weekly treatment for at least 3 weeks after childbirth can help a woman regulate and alleviate these common postpartum conditions:
- Postpartum depression and anxiety
- Exhaustion and insomnia
- Mood swings
Acupuncture also helps nursing moms with:
- Fussy babies – treating mom will positively affect the newborn
