Post-Natal Care

Many women can experience difficulties for up to 3 months after giving birth, with full recovery sometimes taking even longer.  As an acupuncturist, there is a great deal that can be done during this time to help both mother and baby.  Acupuncture can be used to help aid in the healing of many post-natal conditions.

Common ailments include;

Persistent lochia (menstruation) after delivery, urinary problems, muscular aches and pains, pelvic/hip pain, haemorrhoids, perineal soreness, cracked, sore nipples, blocked ducts, mastitis, insufficientlactation and emotional disturbances including post-natal depression.
