Pregnancy can be a wonderful time for the expecting mother, but it can also come with challenges. The mother-to-be may be having issues managing pre-existing conditions that were previously controlled with medication that is no longer safe for her to take. Or she may be suffering from symptoms related to the pregnancy and the hormonal changes in her body.
From a Chinese medical perspective, if a woman has a pre-existing tendency to deficiency of one of the 4 essential substances for health. Namely, qi, blood, yin, or yang then problems during pregnancy may occur, because those deficiencies will be accentuated now that these 4 essential substances are now supporting the fetus (or fetuses) as well.
In addition to deficiencies, the pregnant woman is more prone to a condition in TCM known as “qi stagnation”. The presence of the fetus, however natural and welcome, does cause somewhat of a road block for the free flow of qi especially in the middle burner, or digestive organs. This is often the culprit in cases of morning sickness and or constipation.
