Postnatal Acupuncture

 Some people talk about a 4th trimester, as it can take around 3 mths
to recover from the combined effects of pregnancy & 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.


We recommend Postnatal Acupuncture, as soon as you feel able to attend an appointment, to promote recovery & support your system.

Acupuncture at this point can help:

• Aid breastfeeding and mastitis
• Balance emotions
• Build energy
• Heal scar and perineal tissue
• Improve blood circulation
Improve sleep
• Post-natal depression
