Many new mothers find that the care and attention they received while pregnant suddenly stops once the baby is born. Much care is given to the new child, but the mother’s own body and health are often neglected. Women (and society) expects women to “bounce back” within just a few weeks and return to life as normal.
But the trauma of childbirth and the drastic changes in the woman’s body often bring new health challenges that cannot be ignored. Many women experience postpartum depression (PPD) on top of fluctuating hormones, lack of sleep, and the stress of navigating life with a newborn.
Conventional medicine often prescribes drugs that may cause harmful side effects while not healing the root issues. With acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, you can give your mind and body the attention they need without worrying about harmful effects on yourself and your newborn.
