Acupuncture During Pregnancy: Mom-to-Be's Best Friend

Acupuncture During Pregnancy: Mom-to-Be's Best Friend

As soon as they find our their pregnant many of my patients and friends ask “What can acupuncture do for me during pregnancy?”

Pregnancy and even preconception are such great opportunities to cultivate a healthy lifestyle in anticipation and preparation of the arrival of your new baby. 

To support their efforts and to promote optimal health for you and baby, acupuncture offers an effective and safe solution.  Most women will experience some undesirable symptoms associated with pregnancy, whether it be morning sickness, sciatica, or constipation, just to name a few.  My patients love knowing that they can find relief from their symptoms in a way that is not only effective, but safe for her and her baby.

Going into the last weeks of pregnancy knowing your baby is breech can be very anxiety provoking. At a time that can be very stressful, moxibustion offers a safe and effective solution with the added bonus of promoting relaxation and empowering partners to be actively involved in the care of mom and baby.
