In recent years, traditional Chinese medicine has seeped into all aspects of modern assisted reproductive technology to play a role. For example, TCM assists in regulating menstruation and assisting pregnancy before pregnancy, inducing ovulation, improving endometrial receptivity, and increasing the pregnancy rate. Chinese physicians of all generations have attached great importance to the research on infertility.
Many studies have shown the effectiveness of TCM for fertility and how it boosts women’s fertility rates. Treatments like Acupuncture are able to better regulate hormone levels and stimulate ovulation to increase the chances of conceiving. Going on a TCM-recommended diet can also boost fertility rates by promoting a healthier lifestyle – by balancing the Ying (cooling) food, Yang (warming) food and neutral (neither cool nor warm) food.
After giving birth, a mother’s body continues to undergo changes. As the uterus shrinks, some may experience painful contractions. Eating nutritious meals, getting enough sleep, having the support of loved ones and drinking more fluids are some recommendations to help your body heal.
Changes in hormone levels, body physique and sleeping patterns may affect a woman’s mood after delivery.
This can develop during the first 6 months after birth, and can last over a year if left untreated.
The joy of motherhood is often mired by unpleasant symptoms of pregnancy such as water retention, bloatiness, body aches, cramps, fatigues and mood swings. Prenatal care treatment and postpartum care treatment play an important role in helping pregnant women in relieving physical pain and emotional tension
