With the average age of pregnancy dramatically increasing, pregnancies are becoming more complicated and it is much more important for women to be supported throughout their pregnancies. Chinese medicine provides some of the most powerful tools to support a healthy pregnancy. In this 3 day seminar, Jeffrey Yuen will discuss Classical Chinese Medicine approaches to the evaluation and treatment of pregnancy related complications. He will also discuss appropriate physiological responses and how we can be instrumental in preventative and supportive capacities, even where outward appearances may not indicate a problem. Topics that will be covered include: techniques to support proper fetal development, classical pulse techniques of pregnancy and gender identification, classical strategies of gender selection, prevention of miscarriages, nausea, HG (hyperemesis gravidarum), breech presentation, intrauterine growth restriction, placental insufficiency, premature labor, labor induction, preeclampsia, and more. Day 1 and Day 2 will discuss the pathogenesis and theory. Day three will be a practical session.
Seminar: 9am - 5pm
