Acupuncture for Pregnancy
The female body undergoes an amazing transformation in pregnancy. As your body changes and adapts to supporting 2 human beings, it is imperative that you stay healthy and keep your immune system strong.
That said, there is bound to be general physical discomfort and achiness caused by the growth of the fetus inside of you, as well as from fluid retention, and sluggish digestion.
Pregnancy can also trigger emotional upset because of fluctuating hormone levels. While these are all normal occurrences, some women do experience more severe symptoms than others. No matter what your situation is, we are here to help.
Acupuncture has been used in China for thousands of years as a means to regulate the female menstrual cycle and to support each woman through her pregnancy. It is a safe, natural and effective way to keep you and your baby healthy, happy and more comfortable without the use of harmful medications. Our primary objective as practitioners is to help you feel great throughout your pregnancy, and to help your body and mind prepare for labor and delivery. When you are out of balance, we can help you to come back to your center — and to stay there as long as possible. If you are healthy and feeling great, then baby will too!
For a Healthy Pregnancy:
We recommend regular bi-weekly, weekly or monthly treatments throughout your entire pregnancy, depending on your overall general health and the severity of your symptoms. Regular treatments will ensure that your immune system stays strong and that you feel your best.
After conducting a thorough evaluation and an initial exam, an acupuncturist will use the information gathered to create a unique treatment plan to address your individual needs and concerns. Once we have identified which organ system or line of energy has become unbalanced, this helps us to find the “root” of your symptoms to treat you more effectively.
Acupuncture can help to alleviate the following:
- Morning sickness/nausea
- Low back pain/sciatica
- Labor and Delivery pain
- Insufficient Lactation
- Excessive Lactation
- Post-Partum Depression
Don’t wait until you have discomfort and symptoms — remember, this is preventative/wellness medicine for you and your baby. If you are looking for a way to stay balanced or re-balance without the use of drugs or synthetic hormones, Acupuncture is your best solution. It’s never too late or too early to get started, so call us today to book an evaluation and create a plan for your pregnancy.
