Post Natal recovery through Acupuncture

Our acupuncture fertility clinic is not only focusing on fertility for couples who want to conceive, but we also focus on helping new mothers for post-natal recovery through acupuncture.

Acupuncture may enhance the health of overall well-being for both the mother and baby. There are many things that acupuncture may offer you such as:

  • May help in the recovery from baby blues or depression

It is common for new mothers who experience with the baby blues or depression.  Acupuncture may help to release endorphin into the body, which then makes the new mother feel happier and less stressed. It is also recommended that the mother receive extra treatment by taking Chinese herbal medicine which may lead to a better management of their well-being further so that the baby also can benefit from breastfeeding.

In short, acupuncture may help mothers boost their self-esteem, endorphin levels, may reduce anxiety and therefore may recover from the baby blues.

  • May enhance the production of breast milk

Acupuncture may be an effective treatment for new mothers who have an insufficient supply of breast milk.

It is important for mothers to keep continue breastfeeding even if there are only small amounts while receiving acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. The reason behind the lack of breast milk is because there is not enough nourishment to support the mother’s health.  Other circumstances that affect a mother’s health include long labour with excessive blood loss and birth trauma.

Acupuncture combines with Chinese herbal medicine is may help to further nourish women’s body and mayregenerate mother’s blood as well as the body fluids.

  • May eliminate stress and promote happiness

Stress may be the trigger to the imbalance of chemical and hormone in our body. Acupuncture treatment may assists the mother to have a balanced hormone by releasing ‘qi’ (life force) and stimulating areas in the body that are affected.  Once the hormone balances, endorphins released and stress will be eliminated through regular acupuncture treatments.

  • May avoid mastitis

It is recommended for new mothers to breastfeed their babies in their first 6 months. However, this may be a very traumatic experience for new mums who experience mastitis (inflammation in breast tissue). This caused by a blocked milk duct that has not been cleared. The consequence of having mastitis is there will be an insufficient flow of breast milk for breastfeeding, high fever, massive pain and inflammation.

Acupuncture may be used to treat mastitis. Professional acupuncturist knows the specific points on the body that correspond with the diagnosis in order to accelerate the healing process.

Hence it is recommended to have acupuncture treatment as well as doctor consultation to ensure mother will not have further breasts infection. Through acupuncture, new mothers can be rest assured that they will be free from mastitis.

  • May Decrease Fatigue

As new mothers, it is very difficult to find free time during the day. However, it is very important to set aside the time for themselves to recharge their body through acupuncture. By doing acupuncture treatment, mothers may have their own relaxation time, hence, may decrease fatigue, reduce stress and automatically transfer the happy hormones into the babies (for those who breastfeed).

  • May reduce the difficulty in urinary and postpartum pain

Acupuncture may eliminate the pain of postpartum and at the same time diminishing the urinary problem for new mothers.

  • May reduce body weight and enhance the healthiness

Last but not least, this is the best part of acupuncture for new mothers who want to get back in shape. Acupuncture may be an effective way of treating women to get their healthy weight or return to their previous weight before having the baby.
