Pregnancy

Acupuncture can offer relief to the challenges we experience in our pregnant bodies. We do not have to simply ‘put up with it’

Our body’s hormones shift massively in pregnancy. This causes much change within the body. While some people sail through each month, others may find this time challenging and uncomfortable.

I believe in ‘aiming high’ when it comes to feeling comfortable in pregnancy and experiencing a birth you truly desire. Our bodies are capable of so much, both in our first births and following births that haven’t previously gone to plan.

If we can take care of ourselves throughout pregnancy, it can be a wonderful opportunity to enhance our health and ensure we recover well following birth and well beyond the postpartum period.

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” — Barbara Katz Rothman

My Pregnancy Programmes

Incubate

Pregnancy Care Program

Ideal from 35 weeks until birth with a focus on labour preparation. This program can be modified to accommodate your needs and treatments carried over post-birth. 

Incubate has been created for the soon-to-be Mumma. Whether this is your first, second, third or fourth baby, growing multiples or simply navigating the fluctuations and symptoms of your pregnancy, this program is for you. Includes both physical and emotional support, using a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach for optimal prenatal health and wellbeing.

What’s included:

  • 5 acupuncture treatments.
  • Nutrition & supplement guidance.
  • PDF booklet for using acupressure in labour.
  • Naturobest multi (trimester 2 & 3 plus breastfeeding)

Hatched

Postpartum Recovery Program

Ideal to begin 1 to 2 weeks post-birth or when you are comfortable enough to visit the clinic.

Hatched is my gift to ‘New Born Mothers’. You will be nurtured and given the gentle care your body needs to restore and replenish after labour, birth and all those months of growing your baby. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we call this time ‘The Golden Month’, a time in a woman’s life where she needs as much nourishment as her newborn baby.

Postpartum acupuncture may aid in the rebalancing of hormones, restoring energy, maintaining a healthy milk supply, supporting healthy digestion and elimination and help relieve anxiety, stress and worry. This is a time to heal, so you can restore your energy and tap into the natural vibrancy of your fourth trimester and beyond.

What’s Included:

  • 4 acupuncture treatments.
  • Chinese Herbs to support your 4th-trimester.
  • Nutrition & supplement guidance.
  • Naturobest multi (trimester 2 & 3 plus breastfeeding)
  • First Light Flower Essence Remedy

Flourish

Full Pregnancy Program

Flourish will guide you through pregnancy, labour and the fourth trimester, with care and ease. This program brings together INCUBATE and HATCHED and empowers you to take charge of your wellbeing during one of the most intimate stages of your life.

Starting treatments before birth allows us to learn all about your unique body and how to best guide you through a well and healthy pregnancy and labour. 

Once your baby is born, we will have a clear plan in place to reclaim your energy so your hormones and endocrine system may settle into a balanced rhythm, assisting your body to digest, eliminate and absorb vital nutrients. Women often find by taking good care of themselves after birth, their natural cycles, energy and digestive systems and emotional well being are more easily harmonised and vital. 

A healthy and happy Mumma is the foundation of a healthy and happy family.

Flourish is about Birthing Empowered Mothers.

What’s Included:

  • 10 acupuncture treatments.
  • Pre and postpartum traditional Chinese medicine herbs.
  • Nutrition and supplement guidance.
  • Acupressure PDF.
  • Naturobest Multi (trimester 2 & 3 plus breastfeeding)
