All women benefit, especially those who:
- Have a history of depression or onset of depression during pregnancy
(establish a relationship during 3rd trimester if possible for maximum
- Women who are not breastfeeding. These women are subject
to a HUGE hormone shift from two factors at once (postpartum hormone
shift & reduction/elimination of milk supply)
- Women experiencing miscarriage or fetal demise
- Cesarean birth. For many of these women, their bodies respond
hormonally as if there has been a fetal demise. Acupuncture can help
rebalance and adjust their hormones to the reality of having a baby.
