Postpartum Depression

Many clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is significantly effective in treating postpartum depression. Many of our patients who successfully conceived after acupuncture treatment for infertility remained with us through their pregnancy to receive acupuncture to prevent miscarriage and to improve nutrition. Some of these patients developed postpartum blues and/or postpartum depression. Our treatments have helped nearly all of these patients quickly and successfully overcome their depression.

Our treatment for postpartum depression borrows many of the principals and techniques that we use to treat other types of depression. However, because the mother is often depleted of nutrients and energy after birth, we also focus on increasing nutrition uptake, increasing energy, and strengthening the immune system. We have found that this approach to be extremely successful in helping new mothers regain the energy they need to take care of their newborns.
