Acupuncture, Pregnancy and Childbirth.

Hello,

Hope all is well in your world.

Most definitely busy in mine.

Firstly the¬† Romi and Megan stories, as 2 full term mums put the heat on acupuncture to induce the delivery their babies ‘NOW !’

Secondly the ‘Debra Betts Pregnancy and Childbirth Workshop‘ held in Brisbane over the weekend and a couple of images from down the coast last weekend.

Next Saturday afternoon 2nd August 2-5pm will be the 3rd in a series of workshops that I am presenting on the ‘Clinical Application of Japanese Acupuncture’ as part of my mentoring program.

The Romi Story in Brief.

2 weeks of acupuncture, in this case 4 treatments and Romi and Trent are now the proud parents of twin daughter’s, weighing in @ 6lb. 12 ozs ea. the 3 girls did it ‘Naturally’ in 7 hours, No drugs.

Phew…..sometimes?

Full Warrior Status for Romi!

( An Extra13lbs.10ozs in that Tummy )

A few days earlier and Megan rang me from the labor ward advising me that she was cancelling her appointment due to the imminent birth of her daughter, Sophie weighed in at a whopping 10lb. 8 ozs.!!!

This interview was recorded 2 days after Megan’s 1st treatment ( Moxa needle SP6 and rice grain moxibustion BL67, for 2nd Treatment I added BL32,33,34 with deeper needling ).

A couple of days later Sophie was born.

No wonder Megan was cracking the whip during the treatments.

Mega congratulations to 2 very powerful and strong willed mothers.

Ewes are Awesome!

On the weekend Debra Betts presented a lucid and very important workshop on Pregnancy and Childbirth.

Whilst focusing on Acupuncture, Debra managed to convey much of her vast experience as a mid wife and acupuncturist to a captive audience.

Make no mistake, this was an important workshop if you come anywhere near expectant mothers.

Debra’s immense knowledge and experience were obvious and the concise, matter of fact way in which she communicated with us only enhanced the presentation.

Her clinical insights garnered over so many years of practice were gold and I am positive that all who attended left feeling ‘armed and dangerous’.

Thanks Debra,  for the inspiration and a very rewarding and illuminating weekend.

All the best for Sydney and Melbourne.

Grandma, simply the ‘catch of the season’ when she snatched Ruby mid air, only inches from crashing to the floor after she toppled off the table whilst attempting to catch a balloon.
