Prenatal and Postpartum Health

Miscarriages are relatively common, affecting 15-20% of pregnancies, mostly within the first trimester, though they can occur later. Recurrent miscarriage, defined as three or more consecutive losses, poses particular challenges, with only about half of these cases finding a definitive cause through testing. Known factors include genetic abnormalities, structural issues with the uterus, endocrine disorders, and premature labor, with increased parental age also heightening the risk.

Chinese Medicine and Recurrent Miscarriage

Chinese medicine offers a holistic approach to enhancing fertility and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. It aims to address underlying imbalances potentially causing recurrent miscarriages, which may not be identified by conventional Western diagnostics. By analyzing the menstrual cycle’s frequency, volume, and quality—along with other health indicators—Chinese medicine evaluates a woman’s reproductive health and potential fertility issues such as PCOS, endometriosis, or hormonal imbalances. Treatment may involve acupuncture, herbal remedies, and lifestyle adjustments to correct these imbalances and support a healthy pregnancy.

Acupuncture and Recurrent Miscarriage

Acupuncture is recommended before and during pregnancy to help prepare the body for conception and reduce the risk of miscarriage. It can optimize the endometrial lining for embryo implantation and is useful in treating hormonal imbalances and improving gamete quality, addressing common miscarriage causes. Continuing acupuncture during pregnancy can help maintain the pregnancy and address issues as they arise.

Acupuncture for Emotional Healing Post-Miscarriage

Miscarriage can also lead to significant emotional distress, characterized by grief and hormonal fluctuations. Acupuncture supports healing by addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of recovery. As part of a holistic approach, it treats the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, helping to alleviate emotional distress and physical symptoms following a miscarriage.

    Dr. Logman is quite incredible! I’m an individual who is very active and likes to push physical boundaries in training … Coming from Long Island, I was certainly pretty jacked up physically, but within one session, I felt significantly better… She’s 1000% worth seeing regardless of your location. Thank you for actually being the healers we need!

    I was in such great hands with BK. As a lifelong sufferer of mental illness, acupuncture made me feel like a million bucks. Just so you know, you need more than 1 visit to recover from whatever ailments. Now that I’ve had 5, I feel like a whole new person. So glad this place exists! Your health is your wealth, after all. I’ll be back for more!

    Dr. Logman and her entire staff are all super nice and knowledgeable. I have been experiencing on and off back spasms for a really long time and feel like I may finally be in inching towards healing my lower back! Every session so far has left me feeling better and more relaxed.
