The health of the baby is greatly dependent on the health of the mother during pregnancy.
The Conception Wellness Program for pregnancy can help the expectant mother feel her best. We offer guidance and support for a healthy diet, one that specifically nurtures pregnancy and a developing baby. We also help a mother select the appropriate nutritional supplements needed to ensure a wholesome pregnancy and a healthy baby. Research studies show that certain vitamins and supplements can reduce the incidence of pregnancy complications, such as diabetes, preeclampsia, and prematurity. We know which supplements you need.
The Conception Wellness Program for Pregnancy
The program varies for each individual but customarily includes the following:
Custom Nutritional Supplement Protocol
Nutritional supplements will be recommended based on our review of your history, intake, and current blood work.
We offer guidance to help you choose the foods that maximize health and fertility. We will also counsel you to avoid foods that have been shown to have a negative impact on pregnancy.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for the common discomforts of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, fatigue, sciatica, indigestion, colds, infections, depression, and insomnia.
We provide pregnancy massage to maximize health and comfort during pregnancy.
We provide expectant mothers a series of acupuncture treatments in the weeks prior to delivery. These pre-birth treatments have been documented to show a decreased need for labor induction, a decreased need for epidural, and a shorter duration of labor. In other words, a smoother, faster birth.
Acupuncture can be a safe and effective tool in helping women start labor naturally, once they have gone beyond their due date.
In Chinese culture, the first 30 days after a birth are referred to as the “Sitting Moon.” This is an important time for rest and recovery for mothers and their babies. We provide mothers with a treatment that is sometimes referred to “roasting the mother.” We use a moxa stick to warm the area over the uterus and the lower back. The treatment is noninvasive and feels wonderful. It can help women heal and recover more quickly after giving birth. First treatment should be give five to seven days after birth, and we recommend a series of four treatments.
We will also provide nutrition and dietary support for maximum health and recovery.
We can help if problems arise in the postpartum phase, such a low milk supply, heavy bleeding, colds, infections, depression, and anxiety.
