Pregnancy & Acupuncture 

Here With You & For You 

Pregnancy is one of the most amazing and exciting times in people's lives. It is also a time of great growth and change.  Both baby and mama are growing and tremendous hormonal changes are happening.  All this can bring about a wide array of sensations, aches and pains.  Lets not forget the infamous morning sickness, fatigue and emotional fluctuations. 

Acupuncture is a safe, natural and gentle treatment option and is used to assist with a range of pregnancy related conditions, offering women an alternative to taking medication. It can be used for the discomfort often regarded as part of a ‘normal’ pregnancy that just has to be endured.  

While acupuncture is viewed by many as an ‘alternative’ medicine, its use through pregnancy is widespread in certain countries such as Denmark, France, Germany, Switzerland and New Zealand, where midwives undertake specialized acupuncture training. 

Regular, weekly or monthly acupuncture treatments can provide both physical and emotional support throughout the  pregnancy as well as support natural labor, delivery and postpartum recovery.
