Meeting your needs during
this extraordinary time

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help ensure optimal wellness during pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of extraordinary physical and emotional change, a time of great importance to your health and well-being. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help meet the unique challenges of pregnancy, ensuring optimal care for you and your baby in a safe and natural way, without harmful medications.

How acupuncture can help during pregnancy

During pregnancy acupuncture can help with:

  • back pain and sciatica
  • breech birth
  • constipation
  • edema
  • fatigue
  • heartburn
  • hemorrhoids
  • labor and delivery
  • morning sickness
  • physical issues
  • postoperative healing
  • psychological issues

Regular treatments help maintain your body’s internal equilibrium (homeostasis) enhancing the health of you and your baby throughout your pregnancy, and helping prevent potential complications while nurturing your baby’s development. During the 1st trimester, we set the foundation for a healthy pregnancy, using acupuncture to alleviate morning sickness, vomiting, fatigue, and headaches.

During the 2nd trimester, acupuncture offers relief and balances the body, alleviating heartburn, hemorrhoids, stress, sleep problems, edema, and elevated blood pressure, while limiting weight gain.

During the 3rd trimester, acupuncture helps prepare the body for labor and delivery, helping to alleviate sciatica, hip, joint, pubic, and back pain.

Your unique journey to childbirth

Every woman’s experience during pregnancy is as unique as she is. The above are listed as general guidelines. Your symptoms may follow a “typical pregnancy” pattern, or not. Some women experience morning sickness throughout their pregnancy and some never experience morning sickness the whole nine months. We treat you according to your experience. One set of symptoms isn’t better or worse than another. It just is. And we are here to help you through this special time.
