Congratulations! After nine months of building a human being and then birthing your baby into the world, it can sometimes leave you depleted and with any number and variety of issues. Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to help aid your body’s recovery following nine months of pregnancy, labour and delivery. We know you are busy with baby, and adjusting to erratic sleep patterns, etc., but please take the time every day to nourish yourself and eat well.
Your pregnancy triggered a cascade and surge of various hormonal levels. For example, your progesterone level skyrocketed and following birth they can plummet quite quickly and dramatically. The fluctuation of these hormone levels can leave you feeling not so great while your body readjusts to normal pre-pregnancy levels. If you’re breastfeeding, your prolactin levels are increasing thus causing certain changes. Here at Bring It On we can help support you to recover and be at your very best, for yourself and for your family. With our multi-clinic locations and convenient appointment hours we’re well equipped to provide you with the care and support you need at this time. We use post natal acupuncture to help bring you back to yourself.
The following are some common conditions you may be experiencing that many women come to us for relief:
• Perineal healing from tears or episiotomy (we do not needle in this area)
• Post-natal depression or “the baby blues” (it may just feel like overwhelm or a lack of joy as opposed to feeling really down or you may just be crying for no apparent reason)
• Night sweats
• Uterine prolapse
• Breastfeeding problems such as insufficient lactation or mastitis
• Loose stools
• Stress, anxiety
• Back pain
We haven’t listed all possible conditions so if your condition is not listed here, we can still help.
