Getting Pregnant — Balancing Your Hormones
Traditional Chinese Medicine is extremely effective in addressing any fertility issues — and it all starts with improving your overall health by balancing your hormones. Acupuncture and custom herbal formulas can be used to improve wellness levels, regulate your menstrual cycle and create the necessary balance needed to conceive and bring your pregnancy to full term. At Perry Family Health, we treat the following women’s health and fertility concerns:
Depression & Anxiety
Fibroids & Polyps
PMS & Moodiness
We can also effectively boost the male sperm count to support healthy sperm and encourage likeliness of pregnancy.
Acupuncture can be used to regulate the body during the first trimester. Studies have shown that this helps women have more energy during the first trimester and can even reduce nausea. Weekly acupuncture treatments are often recommended during the first trimester after getting pregnant.
During the second trimester, we often recommend that our fertility patients come in 1-2 times per month to continue to keep the body in balance. Your Acupuncture Physician will use acupuncture to help reduce common symptoms experienced during pregnancy such as heartburn, swelling and stress.
During the third trimester of pregnancy, we recommend acupuncture appointments based on the unique needs of the patient. During this time, women may experience join pain, back pain, pain in the pubic area, sciatica or carpal tunnel. Acupuncture treatments help the mom-to-be stay healthy and in balance while these sessions can also help with position the baby properly before the due date.
Breech Baby Treatments
Sometimes babies are positioned head up instead of head down. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used four thousands of years to assist in naturally moving the baby’s position before birth. Through the use of moxibustion, your Physician will help you reduce the likelihood of a required C-Section.
At Perry Family Health, we are here to support you in helping you get pregnant and throughout every week of your pregnancy. Prior to your birthing date, we often have sessions scheduled with our fertility patients to prepare for birth. These sessions not only include acupuncture treatments, but also incorporate emotional support, stress management and help with the induction process via natural modalities.
After You Give Birth — Postpartum Recovery
After the baby is born, we work with our fertility patients to help you heal and recover. Through the use of acupuncture and custom Chinese herbal formulas, we will help you balance your hormones and combat any noticeable irregularities in your menstrual cycle or lactation issues.
