Pregnancy and Post-Partum

Acutoronto has been treating infertility, pregnancy and post partum for 10 years.  Acupuncture and Chinese herbs help to optimize maternal health enhancing your chances of conceiving, decreasing the chances of miscarriage as well as decreasing post-partum depression.

 

Pregnancy

Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy and can help with many pregnancy related symptoms. Such as:

 

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Pelvic girdle pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Edema in hands and legs

 

Labour

Acupuncture to induce labour is commonly used and is 70% successful in helping to induce labour if you are over due or are approaching your due date. Acupuncture is used to increase blood flow to the uterus helping to descend baby and shorten and soften the cervix. Acupuncture is a safe way to help with cervical ripening, stronger more consistent contractions as well as smooth continuous dilation.

 

Post-Partum

Now that you’ve brought home your beautiful bundle of joy, taking care of yourself isn’t as much of a priority but still equally important as before. Labour is exhausting, breast feeding can cause a lot of stress and with your baby waking up every couple of hours to feed sleep deprivation is a major concern.

 

While we can’t help with the sleep deprivation Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with:

 

  • Insufficient lactation
  • Mastitis
  • Vulva and C-section healing
  • Depression and anxiety
