Acupuncture for Pregnancy & Fertility

Acupuncture is very safe to have during pregnancy and is an effective option at a time when many women choose to avoid taking medicine for minor ailments.
 

How can acupuncture help during pregnancy?
Acupuncture can be used as a natural alternative for the following:

 

  • Morning sickness

  • High/low blood pressure

  • Anxiety

  • Tiredness

  • Constipation

  • Tender breasts

  • Migraine and other headaches

  • Back ache and sciatica 

  • Pelvic pain (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)

  • Varicose veins
     

Acupuncture can turn breech babies

An adjunct technique to acupuncture called moxibustion has been used for many centuries   to turn breech babies. A herb called moxa is 'compacted' into a cigar shaped stick, one end of which is lit and it's slowly smoldered directly above an acupuncture point on the little toe.  Research is currently underway, but previous scientific studies have found promising results for the turning of breech babies; somewhere in the region of 80% success rate.

 

After the birth

Acupuncture is used by new mothers to increase energy levels, to promote healing and to combat the 'baby blues'. It also is very helpful in treating mastitis.
