Now that this is my second time experiencing what it’s like to be postpartum, I wish to emphasize the importance of taking care of your health at this stage of life. Recovery can be more difficult after the birth of your second baby, as the body typically takes longer to heal. Organs such as the uterus, bladder, and intestine will tend to prolapse a bit more easily.
Your energy is especially low when taking care of your older child, baby, and yourself with the little amount of sleep you get having a newborn in the house. Being so fatigued along with the adjustment of the hormones does not bode well for your mental emotional state either. Our Postpartum Program at Pulling Down the Moon offers an excellent way to restore and strengthen your body and mind after an intense event like childbirth.
It uses the following modalities, acupuncture, massage, yoga, and nutrition to rebuild the mother back to a state of normalcy. All of these therapies have been adapted by an expert in each of the respected fields to specifically address recovery during this period. Please feel free to email us or call with any questions you have about out Postpartum Program or to make an appointment.
