At Quiescence many of us are parents ourselves and have our own birth experiences to share. We are passionate about supporting women into the often daunting transition of becoming a mother and are happy to provide all the support you need.
We highly recommend the use of acupressure before and during birth to promote body-mind connection and promote partner involvement. We teach location and technique and provide a booklet to ensure it is carried out correctly. (See our Guide to Induction Points here )
Post -Natal Care
Chinese Medicine is not only concerned with what it takes to become and carry a health pregnancy, it also recognises the huge demand pregnancy and birth places on the mother, both physically and mentally. In Ancient China new mothers where kept in bed for three months to ensure full recovery. While this is admittedly a bit excessive and somewhat difficult to manage in our society, it does go to show how seriously the tole of birth was regarded and the importance placed on full recovery.
Excellent treatment protocols were developed for treating a whole range of post natal complaints including fatigue, mastitis, lack of milk production, abdominal cramping, constipation, night sweats, uterine bleeding, Post natal depression and any emotional concerns that came with the new role.
