Pregnancy and labour can leave a woman exhausted and depleted, and care is needed to recover her reserves and build up her strength. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to both boost her energy and aid her recovery. If the mother is breast-feeding, promoting the health of the mother, will also promote the health of the new-born baby.

- Post-natal depression
- Insufficient lactation
