Acupuncture for Pregnancy Support
Pregnancy is an amazing and wonderful time for many women, but some expecting mothers suffer from muscular pain or severe morning sickness such as nausea or vomiting. This usually lasts for 5-12 weeks but for some women it can continue throughout the entire pregnancy.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatments may be able to support and assist pregnant women with pregnancy related musculoskeletal pains, nausea and vomiting.
Another symptom for some pregnant women includes constipation. This is a common occurrence, however extra fibre, adequate food and water intake, magnesium and exercise may significantly help to allevilate symptoms.
Stress and anxiety could be high during pregnancy for some mothers. Acupuncture treatments help to support feelings of anxiousness and bring a sense of relaxation for the mother during her pregnancy.
During the third trimester, muscular pains related to pregnancy such as back pain, carpal tunnel or leg pains can cause discomfort for some pregnant women. Whilst these symptoms improve after giving birth, during the last few weeks, acupuncture may help to relieve these muscular pains without the need for medication.
Our main goal is to support you during your pregnancy and provide personalised care to you throughout this important and beautiful time in your life.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine may help to support post-partum recuperation for the mother. Acupuncture can also used in paediatrics and babies.
