Depending where you are at in your pregnancy, treatments focus on different aspects to best support your needs and those of your growing baby. From your first trimester, through to your third trimester, get the support you both need!
If you’re in your first trimester, we focus on improving your nutrition, stabilizing the pregnancy, and addressing common issues such as morning sickness, cramping, and fatigue. Our goal is to improve overall health to set up for an easy pregnancy.
If you’re in your second trimester, we focus on supporting proper development of your baby, strengthening your digestion so that you get the most out of what you eat, managing stress, and preventing the common issues of stretch marks, back and hip pain, constipation, promote proper weight gain, and set the foundation for a smooth labor.
If you’re in your third trimester, we focus on supporting your body during this time of increasing demands by increasing circulation to muscles, relaxing and softening tissues, calming the mind, increasing energy, preventing common issues of swelling, hemorrhoids, back and hip pain, prolonged pregnancy, malposition, and preparing for an easier post partum recovery. If you are 35 weeks, I recommend the Birth Preparation program to help prepare your body for labor.

- Herbal medicine

Birth Preparation Program
Start at 35 weeks
Whether it’s your first time or your tenth time, labor is a lot of work, uncomfortable, and unpredictable. But it can be better! Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help induce labor, promote cervical dilation, reduce discomfort during labor, and reduce active labor time by 40%!
Whether you’re actively looking to have a natural, comfortable birth, or just want your experience to be easier, faster, and less complicated, Dr. Rachel can help.
Consultation. This allows me to address any concerns or issues that an expecting mother may have, and identify any imbalances that may lead to medical intervention, difficult labor, or unnecessary discomfort.
4 treatments. The treatments are generally focused on increasing blood circulation, strengthening the body, supporting hormones necessary for labor, reducing stress, promoting cervical dilation, and effective contractions.
Chinese herbal formula. Individualized for each expecting mother to increase energy, stamina, and improve circulation to promote an easier labor.
Educational class and material: Includes a one on one class that empowers the mother and any birth partners with tools to be proactive and improve the natural progress of labor. The class covers ways to effectively relieve pain and discomfort, positively affect the timing and strength of contractions, promote cervical dilation, calm the birthing mother, promote proper position of the baby, and actively engage the partner’s ability to help.
Additional treatment for prolonged pregnancy: If pregnancy progresses beyond 40 weeks, an additional treatment is included specifically to help promote the natural onset of labor.
