Caring for yourself by using acupuncture during pregnancy is an excellent way to stay physically and emotionally comfortable and help prepare your body for birth. It has been found to be a safe and effective alternative to medication for treating a number of conditions that may arise:
- Headaches and migraines
- High blood pressure
- Hormonal changes
- Morning sickness
- Sciatica and back pain
- Skin problems
- Stress, anxiety and insomnia
It can also help prepare the body for labor. Acupuncture supports the growth and positioning of your baby. It can relax the mind and balance a women’s body to meet the demands of labor.
As you get closer to your due date acupuncture can help your body make all the hormones it needs to really get things moving!
Starting at 36 weeks regular weekly appointments are recommended!
