Pregnancy is a special time in a woman's life.
Instead of viewing pregnancy as a condition to be endured, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) embraces pregnancy as one more step in a woman’s reproductive journey. It is an incredibly powerful and unique experience for every woman and we honor this place in your life.
Because pregnancy can bring physical discomforts and emotional challenges, we seek to gently balance a woman’s body and mind so that she can achieve a joyful pregnancy, a positive childbirth experience, and most importantly, a healthy baby.
Through acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, we nurture and support moms. We also educate you and your partner on ways to nurture your pregnancy at home. We want mothers to feel fortified and well informed on their motherhood journey.
Keeping your body and mind healthy throughout pregnancy can also lay the groundwork for an uncomplicated labor and a positive birth experience.
Common pregnancy-related symptoms treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine include:
- Morning sickness
- Threatened miscarriage
- Digestive irregularities
- Sinus congestion
- Fatigue/low energy
- Muscle aches & pains
- Preterm labor
- High blood pressure
- Pelvic pain
- Back pain
- Breech presentation
- Labor preparation
- Labor induction
Pregnancy and childbirth experiences can be incredibly special for women, but they can also leave you physically and emotionally fatigued. While so much attention and support is aimed appropriately at the baby, it is essential to remember that a healthy baby needs a healthy mama. We strongly encourage mothers to take care of their post-pregnancy health just as you do your baby’s health.
Whether you had a short easy labor, a long difficult one, or a cesarean section, your body has been through a tremendous amount of stress. Sleep loss, blood loss, hormonal shifts, and nursing a baby can leave you tired, overwhelmed, and even depressed. Your body, mind and spirit need to recover.
At Acupuncture Center of Greenville, we can help rebuild your blood supply, encourage hormonal balance, help fatigue, calm new-mom anxiety, and support healthy lactation through Chinese medical practices like acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy and nutritional counseling.
Let us help you meet the demands of motherhood by supporting your pregnancy recovery.
