Once the brilliant news of successful conception sinks in, the early stages of a pregnancy can be an anxious time, particularly if you have a history of miscarriage. Acupuncture during early pregnancy can support you and assist your body to do all the right things. It can also help you relax and enjoy the great news. Acupuncture nourishes the mother and supports you to safely carry to full term by enhancing the production of blood and promoting optimal function of your internal organs.
It is simply extraordinary what your body does and goes through as you grow your child. As a result of changes to your hormones, growing bellies & extra stress and pressure on your body, pregnancy can also be accompanied by a few unpleasant symptoms.
Acupuncture can be effective in relieving pregnancy-related fatigue, headaches, heartburn, hemorrhoids, carpel tunnel, sinusitis, back ache, constipation, restless legs, cramps and more.
Morning sickness is a common complaint I see in the first trimester of pregnancy. Using specific acupuncture points to harmonize the stomach and rebalance the body can bring you relief.
