Acupuncture during pregnancy

The female body experiences significant changes during pregnancy. Some women go through uncomfortable symptoms. Symptoms like those listed below are common and can be treated with acupuncture.

  • First trimester: morning sickness, insomnia, anemia, breast tenderness
    Second trimester: swelling, tiredness, breech baby
    Third trimester*: breech baby, back pain, swelling
    *We can also use acupuncture to help promote a smooth delivery

  • Acupuncture works very well on these symptoms. As many pregnant mothers do not want to take medications, acupuncture is actually an ideal treatment because we don't use any medication or chemicals.

Acupuncture and delivery

  • Acupuncture can help the body be in its best condition for delivery. We also teach patients how to practice self-moxibustion as an at-home treatment .

Acupuncture in Postpartum

  • After child birth, the mother is literally exhausted yet she has to immediately start nursing her baby as her body recovers. Acupuncture helps with physical strain, like back pain and stiff shoulders, as well as concerns over breast milk, weak bladder control and leakage issues, cold feet, fatigue, and depression.

  • Happy mother, happy baby!
    Although it might be difficult to have a little time away from your baby, taking good care of yourself will let you be an even more loving and caring mother to your child, family and to people around you.
