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.

High/low blood pressure
Migraine and other headaches
Back ache and sciatica
Pelvic pain (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)
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.
