Mothers need and deserve support and nurture.

Growing a baby, having a new baby: these things are a BIG DEAL. We often spend lots of time planning for our ideal birth, but not always so much time on the before and after.

I believe that physical and emotional support during pregnancy and postpartum make a huge difference in mama (and baby’s) health and well being. It is an huge honor, and one of my favorite things, to be trusted with your care during this transformative time.

Pregnancy Support

Acupuncture during pregnancy can help with many common issues, including:

  • Morning sickness
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Varicose veins and hemorrhoids
  • Pregnancy-induced high blood pressure
  • Sleep issues
  • Swelling
  • Breech babies
  • Labor prep

Pregnancy/Postpartum House Calls

Too hard to get out of the house? I understand! I offer house calls during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy and for the first 3 months postpartum. House calls can be booked within a 7 mile radius of my office location, which includes much of east, central, and south Austin. 

Postpartum

Our culture isn’t a very friendly one for new mamas, and women often have a hard time prioritizing their own care during the first few months after a baby is born. I’m here to help. Postpartum care at Songbird includes: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary recommendations, and referrals to any other necessary support services.

Supportive care during the “fourth trimester” can help with:

  • Recovery from vaginal or cesarean births
  • Postpartum depression and anxiety
  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Mastitis or blocked ducts
  • Sleep issues
  • Fatigue

Postpartum Office Visits

Infants are always welcome at my office! Young babies often nap next to mama during a session, and I will tailor your treatment so you have your arms and hands free.
