Webinar Summary: Empowering Pregnant Patients on How to Prepare for Birth


In June, we hosted Amy Mager DACM, Lic.Ac., Dipl. OM (NCCAOM), FABORM for her FREE webinar, Empowering Pregnant Patients on How to Prepare for Birth.  









About this webinar:

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are incredible tools for supporting pregnant families in how to prepare for birth. In this webinar, our featured guest, Amy Mager shared a few tools you can immediately use to support your pregnant clients.

Please note: Amy does not use the language “”acupuncture induction” as we support pregnant people and are not a pitocin drip nor do we use Foley bulbs to dilate the cervix. However, we can use herbal medicine, acupressure, acupuncture, heat, and other tools to provide meaningful preparation for birth and connection with the growing precious one.

What You Will Learn:

  • Understand how to apply useful language to create an invitation for the baby to birth
  • Understand and know when to apply a traditional TCM formula used for centuries to ease birth
  • Understand and know when to apply presented skills to support new parents’ healing postpartum

Who Should Watch:

  • Practitioners and students looking to learn more about supporting families preparing to give birth
  • Practitioners and students with questions about supporting birthing with acupuncture and TCM
  • Practitioners and students looking to add to their Treatment Tool Box
