Postpartum house calls for moms and babies

After ten years of caring for mothers and babies, I have decided to restructure my office-based practice to allow for more postpartum house calls. Postpartum women and infants can greatly benefit from Chinese medicine, but are often unable to get care because of the logistical challenges involved.

As a compliment to regular medical care, Chinese medicine helps with many common issues after a baby is born:

*Hastens recovery and improves energy for new moms

*Helps feeding/nursing/supply issues

*Combats “baby blues” and postpartum mood fluctuations

*Improves sleep and digestion for mother and baby

*Treats aches and pains from labor, C-sections, and/or holding a newborn

*And much more!

Additionally I am happy to collaborate with and refer to other practitioners, to insure the new family gets the best possible support.

One inclusive fee per visit not only covers an acupuncture treatment for the new mom in her home, but also includes gentle acupressure-massage for baby (with instruction for parents) and a custom herbal formula (for mom) delivered to her home after the session. Some insurance accepted—please contact me for more information.

I am currently offering this service in Manhattan below 96th Street and many Brooklyn neighborhoods. (Additional neighborhoods and boroughs possible by mutual agreement for an additional transportation charge.)
