Acupuncture for Pregnancy :: As an acupuncturist and birthworker, I draw upon traditional practices from Chinese Medicine and knowledge from my family passed through generations to support clients with healthy pregnancy. Ancient wisdom for modern times!
Physical symptoms during pregnancy that acupuncture can treat include preventing miscarriage, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, fatigue, insomnia, back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, body swelling, gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes, breeched position, and labor induction.
Emotional symptoms during pregnancy that acupuncture can treat include stress, anxiety, depression, worry, fear, anger, sadness, and overwhelm.
Acupuncture is beneficial while trying to conceive and throughout the entire pregnancy. I especially encourage pregnant mamas to come in for acupuncture during the first trimester to establish a strong foundation for the pregnancy, and during the third trimester to prepare the body for labor and birth, and ensure a smooth postpartum recovery.
