Acupuncture is a perfect baby shower gift!
Because Acupuncture is a pregnant woman’s best friend. There are so many aches and pains that might go along with her pregnancy, and acupuncture is a very safe, drug-free way of dealing with them. Morning sickness, swelling, back pain, fatigue, anxiety, all of this and more can be alleviated with acupuncture. Overdue babies can be encouraged to come with acupuncture (with approval of the midwife or doctor), and breech babies will often turn within a few sessions.
There is an entire branch of Chinese Medicine devoted to pregnancy and birthing. If you gift your favorite mother-to-be with acupuncture, she can use it whenever she needs to, before or after the baby. If she brings the new father or her birthing couch along, Kathleen is happy to show them where to apply pressure to help her when the big event comes. While you are here, be sure to pick up a packet of special food herbs you can add to homemade chicken soup — a wonderful dish for postpartum recovery. Acupuncture is a unique baby shower gift, and she’ll remember you warmly for it.
