For those of you who didn’t notice my belly at the clinic all these months, here it is! Definitely got my bump going on! 🤰
I’ve got a long torso so my body carries quite low. So far, not too many aches just the occasional round ligament twinges.
3 therapies that have helped me with pregnancy pain:
. #1 Acupuncture #2 Yoga #3 Epsom Salt Baths
If you haven’t had acupuncture during your pregnancy, I highly recommend getting regular treatments.
Why? Because your body is going through some major physiological changes such as 40-50% more blood volume pumping through your body, weight gain and edema, hormonal surges affecting mood, sleep, and nipples! Plus more relaxin output which makes your ligaments more loose and joints unstable. Oh did I mention many women also get constipated?
Acupuncture combined with yoga can help increase circulation, break up stagnation to alleviate pain, help to balance hormones and get your bowels moving and nourishes that growing baby by bringing fresh blood and Qi to the uterus!
I also love acupuncture for labor support to ensure baby is ready for the big day! Head down, cervix ripe, pelvis open and mama feeling confident, rested and grounded! I love supporting myself in this way! #selfcare#naturalpregnancy#mindfulmama 🤰💪👶💕
A powerful visualization technique, and one I did during a breakthrough time in my life, is to sit down and for half an hour each morning and write three pages of what an ideal life looks like.
For me, it was followed by a major breakthrough in my career area. I wrote pages on my ideal scenario in the present tense as if it’s already happened, that I had achieved the goal that I wanted.
Another step, is to convince the subconscious mind through autosuggestion. Autosuggestion is this idea of repeating beliefs, repeating things that you want, so that your subconscious believes it.
This creates a dissonance between your waking mind and your subconscious mind. If you say you’re healthy and your logical, conscious mind doesn’t believe it, but your subconscious believes it; then it creates a tension.
The conscious and subconscious start to work together to create what your subconscious is being told through that autosuggestion. We can do this through picture, words and phrases that you repeat to yourself, or acting out a desired future—for instance walking across the stage of the place where you’ll receive your diploma when you graduate.

Basic Ear points for Fertility: Shen Men to calm, Uterus of course, LV, SP & KD. #AcupunctureRocks
This point is AMAZING! It helps with problems like nose bleeds, nasal congestion, headaches, and even high blood pressure–but my number one favorite reason to use this is best explained in the words of my daughter… “Mom, when you put that point in my forehead it feels like all of the stress, anxiety and troubles in my mind just slowly drip out of my head like warm water. My whole body sinks into relaxation and I go into a deep happy place.”
Isn’t that awesome? She has a way with words. But honestly, all of our patients have special descriptions of how Yin Tang makes them feel. It is always tied to deep relaxation. One of my patients even calls this point her “Coma Point.” It’s that powerful for relaxing emotions. I’d say it’s one of the number one most used points used in our clinic.
Does #acupuncture hurt? If babies can handle it with no fuss and no tears, it’s safe to say that acupuncture is gentle and relaxing.

Pregnancy the second time has been so different! Not only are you caring for another small child but you’re also creating another human being for the second time!
Your body is amazing and I commend those who have done it multiple times! I was very nauseous and 🤮a lot the first 17 weeks. Things are much better now but I still have occasional waves.
I’m also older. Approaching the big 40 this April. That’s right! 40!!!
So many women I work with are in their 40s who are trying to conceive and studies show that concurrent acupuncture and herbs along with western approaches are 65-75% more effective in conception than without.
We were fortunate to get pregnant quickly just like our first. It’s becoming more the norm for parents to be in their late 30s and 40s. I am grateful to have led a full life of adventure and travel before settling down into motherhood.
Don’t get me wrong. Travel is still very much a part of our journey now as a family. But I got out a lot of other goals while kid free (like 3 other careers, international travel, and non profit work!)
Happy to walk this path and be able to share what I’ve learned along the way to new mamas! 🤰👶 #naturalpregnancy#number2#wellnessmama

As a high level sportsperson I have many people on my team. From coaches, mentors, friends, family, physio and a sports masseuse! As part of relaxation I attend @flinnfit regularly to keep my muscles performing in tip top condition. Last night we used some new CBD muscle balm to reduce pain and soreness!
I normally suffer with calf soreness and a tight rectus femoris (Quad muscle) this balm has worked wonders over the evening and I feel fresh today.

Have you ever noticed that an especially busy or stressful month can be followed by more intense premenstrual symptoms? Your period is like a monthly report card offering clues on your overall health 🧐 🤔 Yet so often these helpful clues go unnoticed until things get more serious.
Factors such as the length of the cycle and the nature of the menstrual flow (heaviness, clots, accompanied symptoms such as cramps, headaches or mood changes) are all significant and can identify any glitches in the smooth movement of Qi and Blood.
Taking notice of these details (even recording them in a journal or app) can help to pick up on the early signs of imbalance and take more informed and proactive steps towards maintaining your overall health, plus your acupuncturist will love you! 🤓🤓

Sore, swollen boobs is not a requirement of a menstrual cycle, despite what you may have been told! .
Often this is a telltale symptom of Liver qi stagnation (yes, the same thing that may get you huffing and puffing - see the post with Princess Di in home shorts just below). Have a side stretch, go for a walk, dance around (for the love of god hold them so they don't get more sore!), and take your herbs!
PS have you had a chance to say something about your period to a stranger yet?? I haven't yet. Maybe I'll drop it with the local barista tomorrow - he's kinda grumpy, which could prove great. 🤗

Although #gastroenterologists diagnose IBS frequently, many people don’t even recognize the symptoms. Symptoms may include pain in the abdomen, change in bowel habits, #constipation , diarrhea, #indigestion , #nausea , excessive gas, abdominal cramping and loss of appetite.
In TCM, the spleen, liver and gallbladder all play vital roles in gastrointestinal health.
Acupuncture Points for IBS:
#LargeIntestine4 – This point is located on the back of the hand bilaterally, between the thumb and forefinger, where the mound of flesh is the thickest. Large intestine 4 is the source point for the large intestine channel and it is great for aiding in digestive disorders. #Stomach25 – Found bilaterally on either side of the belly button, about 2 thumb widths away from the center of the navel. This point helps move abdominal blood, which can alleviate gastrointestinal disorders. #Ren6 – Located 2 finger widths below the belly button on the midline of the body, this point strengthens the large intestine and helps relieve constipation and abdominal cramping.
Dietary Recommendations for IBS:
Nutrition is very important in the treatment of IBS.
Most people who suffer from IBS need to increase their intake of #fiber . Foods like bananas, almonds, blueberries and avocados are all great choices. It is also recommended to avoid excessive #gluten intake. Gluten is found in most breads and pastas. Processed, greasy and fried foods are also not good choices for IBS sufferers, as they disrupt the #gut microbiome and are hard to #digest .
Seeking help from a #LicensedAcupuncturist is a great way to handle IBS. #TraditionalChineseMedicine can guide you along the path to #wellness and can work cooperatively with your gastroenterologist’s regimen to give you the best chance of success.
