Acupuncture for Pregnancy

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting and terrifying times in a woman’s life. From start to finish it’s a constant roller coaster of unknowns especially for first time mothers. Through each trimester your hormones are changing so fast you don’t even know how to deal with the symptoms and before you know it another new set of symptoms have begun. Some trimesters may be easier then others but each comes with its own challenges. Many women can have moderate to severe symptoms throughout their pregnancy and sometimes have no idea what to expect. We’ve all heard stories from our close friends and family but until its you throwing up all day and feeling completely drained its hard to
truly understand.

Once those symptoms start showing up you may call your OBGYN and they may say its normal. The time keeps passing by and you continue to feel horrible without a real solution besides taking medication that could potentially be harmful to your baby. This is a common concern for many of my patients that feel they don’t have any options. But you have options your doctor may not know about and that’s acupuncture! Many woman have used acupuncture to help increase their fertility but did you know it’s also beneficial during your pregnancy and even postpartum.

Benefits of acupuncture for pregnancy are…


 Nausea and Vomiting
 Lower back pain and sciatica
 Low energy
 Hormone balance
 Inducing Labor
 Breach positions
