Yin Studio offers safe wholistic treatments to benefit both the mother and baby in achieving optimum health. Ideally, this journey begins with preconception care to prepare the body for pregnancy. The focus is on physical and emotional well-being to assist in a healthy full term pregnancy, nourishing the baby and preparing the body for the birth and the postpartum period.
There is evidence supporting the positive effect that acupuncture has for women suffering from nausea and/or dry retching during the earlier stages of pregnancy.
Pre-birth acupuncture is a course of balancing treatments designed to prepare your body for birth. Treatments are usually given once a week from 36 weeks, helping mother’s-to-be prepare physically and emotionally for the birth of their baby. Pre-birth acupuncture can also ripen the cervix and support uterine tone, minimise anxiety and promote relaxation, encourage the baby into the optimal position for birth, nourish and build energy for labour and recovery and address any specific complaints such as back pain, heartburn or constipation.
After giving birth it is important that the woman’s body is well nourished and balanced to benefit the health of both the mother and baby. This allows sufficient energy levels, adequate breast milk and emotional well being to assist the mother to adjust to the rhythm of motherhood.
