In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the postnatal or postpartum period refers to the four months following delivery, with the first 30 days most critical to healing and the re-establishment of health. Postnatal women can present with specific areas of imbalance and symptoms that can range from mild to severe and be short-lived or prolonged.
To minimise and treat postnatal imbalance, TCM stresses rest in combination with gentle exercise and focus on diet to rebuild Blood and Qi energy.
Moxibustion is also useful to help warm the uterus and pelvic area, and can help dry up lochia, treat haemorrhage, shrink the uterus back to normal size, and stimulate milk production.
Melissa can develop a customised, postnatal care plan that works with any medical instruction, to encourage an efficient return to health.
