THE NEEDS OF POST MISCARRIAGE CARE
Both spontaneous abortion (RPL, Missed abortion) and induced abortion,
damages the mother
more than giving birth naturally.
A woman's body needs more care then ever, since mothers not only go through the physical difficulties of a miscarriage
but also the emotional difficulties associated with losing a child.
In ancient Oriental Medicine text, a “person who has weak energy and blood cannot grow a child inside, as a dried tree cannot grow a fruit.”
1. If the mother’s body is in a condition not suitable to nourish the growth of a fetus, miscarriage often occurs. Oriental Medicine treatment is very important in order to create a good environment in the uterus.
2. A woman not only needs post miscarriage care for their own well-being, but also to prepare for the next pregnancy to prevent recurrent pregnancy loss.
1. After the induced abortion, it is very important to let the blood stagnation(Lochia) out and promote the functionality of the uterus.
2. Using Oriental Medicine to prepare for the next pregnancy is the best and most natural way to restore the uterus.
Terminating a pregnancy with surgery or drugs will cause lots of stress on the uterus and mother. Especially, after a surgical (scraping) abortion without a proper care, “Asheman’s syndrome” , which can cause sterility, can occur.
WHY ORIENTAL MEDICINE CARE FOR POST MISCARRIAGE?
In ancient Oriental Medicine text, a “normal childbirth is the same as a matured chestnut peeling itself. But when a miscarriage occurs it is the same as when a person tries to peel a pre-mature chestnut with tools.
The damage to a woman’s genitals is much greater than normal labor and it needs intensive aftercare.”
After the miscarriage, treatment to restore uterus and prevent sequela (after effects) is very important. This is the best way to prepare next pregnancy.
Right after the abortion, a mother has to heal from the emotional stress, eliminate the blood stagnation (Lochia), and minimize the damage to the uterus.
Therefore, according the pregnancy plan that couple has, treatments to restore, tonify, promote function of the uterus, energy, and blood is essential. This is the stage where we find and treat the cause of miscarriage and prepare for the next pregnancy.
This prevents recurrent pregnancy loss and leads to stronger implantation.
