Staying Strong Through Pregnancy and DeliveryEveryone at YinOva gets a lot of pleasure out of helping women conceive and then taking care of them during their pregnancy. Watching them grow and change never ceases to amaze, though it can be hard to stop and see for yourself during pregnancy just how miraculous you are. Sometimes, morning sickness, fatigue, back pain or swollen ankles obscure your vision on that point. That’s why we designed a pregnancy program to complement the care you get from your obstetrician, offering natural solutions to the most common pregnancy ailments and helping you take control of your pregnancy
Using acupuncture we can address issues such as:
- Morning sickness
- Swollen ankles
- Back pain
- Heart burn
- Not to mention our soothing herbal balm for hemorrhoids that moms-to-be swear by!
Our practitioners are available to reassure, support, and guide you through each trimester. In the last few weeks, we help you get in shape for labor, softening your pelvic muscles and ligaments and giving you an energy boost before the big day. Many obstetricians send patients to us for help in turning breech babies. (We use moxa, a technique that has been used this way for centuries but is now gaining increasing respect here in the west as research shows a 67% success rate.
