Being a mom has made me so tired. And so happy.

—Tina Fey

At such an important time for mother and baby, we can provide supportive treatments for fatigue, lactation issues, mastitis, C-section recovery, depression and anxiety. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine recommends women stay home in bed with their newborn for 100 days following the birth. While this may seem impossible today, women still need rest, proper care, and nourishment after 9 months of pregnancy and childbirth. This is not a time for absolute bed rest, but rather a time where physical and mental rest is important, gentle exercise is beneficial, and attention on a nourishing diet is imperative.

At The Nest, we focus on nourishing postpartum treatments, acupuncture, individualized nutrition, and lifestyle counseling to fully support new moms. We know that when mom is healthy and peaceful, enhanced mother and baby bonding results.

Postpartum conditions include: 

  • Insufficient lactation
  • Insufficient lactation
  • Blocked milk ducts
  • Mastitis
  • Night sweats
  • Low energy
  • Postpartum aches and pains
  • Incontinence
  • Perineal healing
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • C-section recovery

Incision and scar healing treatments are especially beneficial to receive as soon after labor as is possible, to ensure minimal discomfort for mom. Pain and numbness from previous surgeries can also be addressed and alleviated.
Ideally, acupuncture treatments begin from two weeks postpartum, for a minimum of one to two months to promote stamina and efficient recovery.

Referrals to excellent lactation consultants, postpartum doulas, and supportive personal trainers are available.
