Fertility, Pregnancy, Post-Partum Diseases


Acupuncture & TCM  

Chinese medicine has a long history of treating infertility, pregnancy, and Post-partum diseases. The Treasure of Obstetrics by Jing Xiao Chan Bao, written during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) contains 3 volumes, with 52 chapters and 371 prescriptions which address fertility, diseases during pregnancy, difficult labour and post-partum disease. It is the oldest surviving Chinese text dedicated entirely to obstetrics. Today, modern scientific research is confirming that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used both safely and effectively when administered by a licensed professional. Below you will find links  confirming the fact that these modalities can be useful during all phases of the reproduction process.
