Many people are familiar with acupuncture being used for pain relief, stress reduction and achieving emotional balance.  TCM's unique diagnosis of internal conditions means that acupuncture is used for treatment of a wide range of health problems.

Acupuncture in Pregnancy

Acupuncture in pregnancy is well researched as an effective therapy and can be used safely in cases where there are few other treatment options.  Single use disposable needles are used.  It can be used for the following conditions:

threatened miscarriage, bleeding in pregnancy

nausea, vomiting, heartburn, constipation

fatigue and exhaustion

urinary tract infections

anaemia - in combination with supplementation

insomnia

musculoskeletal conditions - pubic symphysis pain,

  lower back pain, sciatica, carpel tunnel, neck pain


Acupuncture is both safe and beneficial for you and your baby.  Regular treatments throughout the pregnancy enhances the health of the mother, prevents or minimises other health problems and supports the development of a health baby.

During the first 6 months for optimal vitality we recommend acupuncture treatments every 3-4 weeks.  These treatments assist and support the developing baby, morning sickness, headaches, tiredness, anxiety etc.  With more problematic symptoms we recommend weekly treatments until the symptoms are alleviated.

From week 36 we recommend weekly treatments which focus on preparing you and your baby for birth.  In the third trimester there is a focus on the baby's position and acupuncture may correct breech or badly positioned babies and assist with labour induction.
