ACUPUNCTURE IN PREGNANCY
Acupuncture may be especially useful at all stages of pregnancy. It is good for relieving stress and an effective treatment for some of the more common ailments of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, back and pelvic pain.
There's plenty do in the last few weeks of pregnancy in helping to prepare you for the birth. For example, it may help to induce labour, or to turn breech babies, as well as to help with pain relief during the birth itself. I recommend women to come to us on a weekly basis from 37 weeks onwards for labour preparation.
POST NATAL ACUPUNCTURE
For centuries Chinese medicine has regarded pregnancy as a potentially draining process and has developed routine restorative post natal treatments. In the West we seem to expect everyone to be a super-mum and bounce back immediately! Post birth sessions can start from about a week after delivery. It may be useful to rebuild your constitution or for specific conditions such as insufficient milk, post natal depression or back pain.
