Stay Healthy with Acupuncture in Pregnancy.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for common complaints throughout pregnancy. Pregnancy acupuncture is fantastic way to manage health and keep you and your baby calm and comfortable.
Acupuncture treatments are suitable throughout all stages of pregnancy.
Acupuncture can help your body adjust and cope with all the changes your body goes through during pregnancy. I can help in the early stages for relieving common symptoms like morning sickness. As you head into your last trimester I can help the positioning of your baby and ensure your body is ready to give birth. Acupuncture is great to bring on labour and is now recommended by many midwives and even obstetricians.
Pregnancy Acupuncture treatment in the first, second and third trimesters.
Feeling sick or tired? During early pregnancy the most common symptoms women experience are nausea and fatigue. Acupuncture can help to increase energy levels and eliminate morning sickness in most cases.
Having sleep problems? Using acupuncture can help alleviate insomnia and benefit sleep quality.
Sick of aches and pain. A gentle acupuncture treatment can help to relieve pain on back and shoulders, manage sciatica and carpel tunnel syndrome, headaches and migraines without using medication.
Have you had a miscarriage and you are at risk, gentle treatments can help strengthen and support your body until pregnancy is established. Our clinic also recommends a specific herbal formula. Acupuncture helps to calm the mind and reduce cortisol levels thus reducing stress and anxiety.
Is the baby in the right position for birth? Babies who are in breech, transverse or oblique position can often be easily corrected with one or two simple treatments. This is best treated around 35-37 weeks gestation.
Acupuncture treatments in the last few weeks of pregnancy can greatly assist in preparation for labour and are a must for woman for a natural and empowering birth. These treatments have a fantastic effect on relaxing muscles and joints and relieving pain, calming the mind and reducing the risk of complications and often result in shorter and smoother labour. I recommend weekly treatments from 36 weeks onwards to help prepare you and baby for a stress-free labour.
