Once a mother falls pregnant it can also be the source of much anxiety. Morning sickness and Blood pressure changes often respond well to Acupuncture. More serious problems such as threatened miscarriage and repeated miscarriage are all treated with Acupuncture or Chinese Herbal Medicine. Since some herbs can be damaging to the growing child it is important never to take herbs from someone not properly trained in Herbal Gynaecology. Stephen would be happy to send you a list of herbs to avoid when taking Chinese Medicine.
After a child is born and after the elation of bringing a new person into the world has subsided many women and men can find the challenge of parenting difficult. Combine this with less sleep and the trauma on the mother from the birth many women suffer health problems including post natal depression. In China women as a matter of course are given tonics to prevent depression and ensure proper healing of the body. The supplements help with sleep and energy levels and also with anxiety and stress. These herbs need to be prescribed by someone who understands the difference in prescribing herbs for a breastfeeding mother and a standard person. Stephen can advise you of supplement and herbs that are safe to take during pregnancy and breast feeding, often far more effective than the standard over the counter products available to the average person.
