Helping you with symptoms that may arise such as nausea and vomiting, fatigue, reflux and back & hip pain are all part of treatment during pregnancy. Keeping your immunity strong so you avoid colds and flu is preferable for many women who seek acupuncture.
Preparation for labour includes ensuring energy levels and overall function of the body are optimised within the bounds of what acupuncture treatment can offer. The idea is, that in balance, the body is more likely to do what it is designed to do, naturally. Any niggling symptoms will be addressed so the woman feels relaxed, happy, and ready for the impending birth.
If your baby is overdue and medical induction is imminent, to help encourage labour, we use shiatsu and classic induction points.
