More About Us

We offer packages specifically focused on supporting you in pregnancy and the postpartum period.

Birth Preparation & Recovery Package – $400
(10% discount)

Towards the end of one’s pregnancy, acupuncture can be a great resource to help get the body ready for the immense work of labor. The less stagnation and discomfort you are feeling in those last weeks, the better your body will adapt to the changes during labor and birth. The same goes for immediately after giving birth. Postpartum support in healing and adapting to your new world of motherhood is greatly accentuated by balancing acupuncture treatments.

This package includes:

  • 3 prenatal treatments, including a new patient treatment and one for labor support, ideally used in the last 4-6 weeks prior to birth.
  • 1 postpartum treatment, which can be scheduled in the comfort of your own home within the first 4-6 weeks after birth.
  • 1 postpartum ear seed kit, valued at $24.99
  • A small goody bag of random postpartum helpful items.
In-Home Pregnancy/Postpartum Treatment – $150

If you find yourself on bed rest during your pregnancy, but would still like to receive acupuncture to relieve the common discomforts of the last trimester, and to prepare your body for the task of labor, I can come to you. After birth, I encourage my patients to heal and recover in their own home during the traditional “laying in period”. I want to help you make this a comforting time while you’re learning about your new little one. I bring my supplies to your home for an acupuncture treatment in the comfort of your own bed (or couch). These treatments can promote postpartum healing, successful breastfeeding, and emotional support. In-home treatments are available to those living within a reasonable distance of my office in Chicago.
