The postpartum period, especially the first 30 days after birth, is an important time for the mother to gather strength and rest after her labor and delivery. Although post-delivery is a very busy time, we encourage acupuncture treatments after the baby arrives. The restoration of the mother’s health is imperative for wellbeing and helps with the ability to be present with the newborn.
Proper postpartum care not only determines how quickly you will heal and recover your energy, but it is thought to determine your health far into the future, including future fertility, gynecological health and even menopausal issues. The postpartum period should prioritize rest and recuperation.
The health and energy of both parents are important which is why we offer postpartum care for the entire family. House calls are available to our established patients during the six week postpartum period for a discounted postpartum rate. Babies are always welcome to come with you to your office visits as well!
