Q – Is there a natural treatment for the baby blues?

A – During the course of a pregnancy you are constantly nurturing your baby with your love, energy (Qi) and nutrition. During the postpartum period you give anything you have left while breastfeeding, figuring out how the diapers work, and oogling over the cuteness of your baby. It is not surprising that may have the baby blues, you have been totally zapped of your Qi.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are a safe and gentle treatment to help restore balance within your body. It is an individualized treatment based on your signs and symptoms that is preformed weekly. For women that have postpartum depression, results are often felt after 1-2 treatments, however it is recommend that you continue with treatments for 6 to 8 weeks.
