Labor is one of the most difficult experiences that women can go through. It is stressful, painful, and scary, but also magical, beautiful and life changing. Chinese medicine is probably best known for its ability to change the position of babies that are in the breech position, but that is only one of many conditions that we treat in relation to labor. We can prepare the body for labor, which often allows labor to begin, we can help to provide the necessary energy to endure labor and we can help to manage the pain during labor.
In addition to extensive continuing education training on labor and pregnancy, Tuesday has undergone an intensive clinical internship with Claudia Citkovitz at Lutheran Hospital. Upon completion of her internship, Tuesday became credentialed to practiced acupuncture at Lutheran hospital and treats patients in the Labor and Delivery ward.
