Acupuncture and moxibustion for new mothers

 

Postnatal care

Acupuncture has techniques to promote recovery; these include “mother warming” treatments and advice on diet to energise new mothers and aid in recovery, to build strength to continue to take care of the baby. Some of the techniques can be taught to you so that they can be done at home with the help of a partner or a family member. Best done 4 to 5 days after the birth of the baby.

Other conditions that can be helped by acupuncture include:

  • insufficient lactation
  • mastitis
  • night sweats
  • scar tissue repair
  • postnatal depression
  • urinary incontinence
