Pediatricians

Pediatrician’s in South Florida that come recommended from moms. Choosing any doctor is very important. Ask people that you trust who they use.

- morning sickness
- anxiety and stress
- headaches
- natural labor incentive
- helping to prevent postpartum depression
- relaxation & lactation support
- prolapses
- allergies and asthma
- back and sciatica pain
- edema – swelling
- premature labor contractions
- pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) which can lead to toxemia
- breech presentation
- stalled early labor
- fatigue and insomnia
- constipation, diarrhea and hemorrhoids

Acupuncture is helpful for many issues including encouraging fertility, helping to alleviate many of the common discomforts of pregnancy such as hip, leg, and back discomfort; headaches; and the pregnancy-induced skin rash (PUPPS) that sometimes occurs. It is beneficial for pregnant women to receive weekly acupuncture beginning at the 37th week to help with reducing labor duration, relaxation and to help with a smoother birth process. Acupuncture is also used as a more natural way to help induce labor. Postpartum, acupuncture can help with lactation stress, postpartum depression, fatigue, and assist with the emotional transition of birth into parenthood.
