Acupuncture for Pregnancy

During pregnancy your body does amazing things! Not only is it busy growing a brand new human being, but it also has to adapt to a new 'normal' for sustaining you. Sometimes this can cause negative symptoms, such as back ache, heartburn or discomfort.

Staying healthly during pregnancy

Acupuncture can support a healthy pregnancy by alleviating some of these negative symptoms. I also use acupuncture to prepare women for labour; usually from 37 weeks a women can receive pre-labour acupuncture which research has shown can decrease the duration of labour and reduce the likelihood of intervention. I also offer acupuncture and moxa treatment to postpartum mums to promote healing after labour; this helps to heal any scar tissue, reduce swelling and pain and promote milk production.

Common symptoms acupuncture can help to alleviate:

  • Morning sickness
  • Heart burn
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Back pain
  • Swollen or achy joints
  • Breach presentation (acupuncture and moxa can help your baby turn)
