Chi Care

Prenatal Acupuncture

Acupuncture & herbal support can not only balance the endocrine system to overcome infertility, it can also provide relief from morning sickness, low back/pelvic pain, headaches, depression, sleep issues, and much more! We can also connect you with TCM Placenta Encapsulation specialists.

Moxibustion is another favored aspects of TCM in which your practitioner will hold lit mugwort incense inches above specific energy points to stimulate the shift of subtle energy without the use of needle filaments. Many herbal teas and tinctures can support the stages of pregnancy, lactation and postnatal recovery.

Birth Art

Prenatal Belly Henna

Traditionally hennaing the pregnant mother is a blessing to mother and baby for safe birthing and the celebration of new life. The perfect way to adorn yourself for your baby shower, Blessingway, maternity photos, and delivery! Every belly henna is designed by the mother and the artist together to make a beautiful and meaningful henna design.  It is such a lovely experience to have your belly decorated and something you will remember forever. Henna body art is an ancient way to honor the pregnant woman's inner strength as she prepares for birth. The henna plant paste painlessly stains the outer layer of the skin and then gradually fades away over 2 weeks. The design lasts about as long as a bouquet of flowers.

Rites&Ritual

Blessingway Ceremony

A Blessingway, or Mother’s Blessing, is a celebration of pregnancy and becoming a mother that focuses more on the mother than the baby. During a Blessingway, a group of her closest friends will come together and honor her pregnancy and journey into motherhood. They will offer words of wisdom around preparing for birth and postpartum and often include a small ceremony to mark the occasion. Not only are blessingways a beautiful way to honor a mother, but is also changing the way we as humans view birth. Somewhere along the way, we have forgotten that it is our purpose to bring new life to Earth, this is what we do, we create love! Bringing back into the light the sacred ceremony of a Blessingway, we are reopening a chapter for women, men, and families to view birth as a sacred rite.
