During pregnancy, acupuncture can be used to alleviate many related symptoms: nausea and vomiting, insomnia and fatigue, anxiety and depression, pelvic pain, itching and pregnancy induced hypertension.
Acupuncture and moxibustion can help turn a baby in a breech position, ideally around 34 weeks but may still work as late as 37-38 weeks.
Pre birth treatments from 36 weeks have been shown to facilitate birth by loosening the ligaments, ripening the cervix and helping the baby to descend naturally.
As a mother I have had the personal experience of 3 very different births, and as a practitioner helping many expectant mums through this life-changing transition to motherhood. Working with pregnant mums is my most rewarding work.
