November 27, 2018 OBAA Co-President, Dr. Emilie Salomons is joined by OBAA Board Advisor Sarah Budd, a midwife and acupuncturist in the UK and OBAA Research Advisor Dr Debra Betts a lecturer, researcher and author of the book “The Essential Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy & Childbirth”.
Together they will cover the important aspects of adverse events in pregnancy. Sarah focuses on stillbirth from the midwifery and acupuncture perspective, and Debra covers the miscarriage aspect.
The panel discussion looks at how acupuncture and TCM can play a role in the emotional support, as well as addressing any physical discomforts from the birth such as after pains, breast engorgement, etc which are all such cruel reminders that she is a parent without having a baby to show for it. The panel will also look at ways to help with the post-natal recovery.
