How can Acupuncture help?
With pregnancy, many difficult conditions from morning sickness to acute migraines, digestive issues and other aggravating discomforts can occur frequently.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years on pregnant women as a safe, conservative tool to combat common health issues that arise during pregnancy.
Acupuncture performed within the first trimester of pregnancy usually focuses on increasing energy, decreasing headaches easing morning sickness and balancing stress both emotional and physical.
Acupuncture performed within the second trimester focuses generally on lower back and pelvic pain, as well as conditioning the mother’s body for overall health. Allowing for an environment where the baby can flourish.
Within the third trimester, Acupuncture has some of the most important benefits helping ease pain, improve sleep, digestive function, control stress and improve conditions like breach and when the time comes labor pains. Studies even have shown Acupuncture as a very effective tool in the last stages of pregnancy. Many Acupuncturists even perform their services during labor in hospitals and birth centers.
