It can take 3 months to recover from pregnancy and labour.
Having a newborn can be incredibly uplifting but it is also exhausting. This can add to the time needed to recover fully. In this day and age it is more important than ever, with short paternity leave and social pressures for mothers to perform.
Rest should be taken when possible, exercise appropriate and diet should emphasize blood and energy production. Without sufficient support it may well mean months of tiredness.
Postnatal acupuncture at this stage is used to promote an efficient recovery and build stamina for the weeks ahead. We advise you to have a couple of sessions, when you feel able, after the birth.
Acupuncture at this point can help:
• Aid breastfeeding and mastitis
• Balance emotions
• Build energy and blood
• Heal scar and perineal tissue
• Promote good sleep
• Post-natal depression
