For acupuncturists and birth professionals, this book explains how yin yang and other principles of Chinese medicine can improve birth experiences as well as outcomes.

Accessible and engaging, the book includes an overview of Chinese medicine for women’s health, information on what happens before, during and after birth from both a biomedical and Chinese medical perspective,and a toolkit of treatment strategies for birth work. The techniques described include acupressure, Tui Na Chinese medical bodywork, needling, auricular acupressure and electrostimulation.
