Fertility & Pregnancy

Acupuncture offers a SAFE, EFFECTIVE and drug-free treatment option during pregnancy.

Nausea during Pregnancy

Acupuncture is very effective in reducing both the severity and incidence of nausea & vomiting during pregnancy.

Muscular - Skeletal Pain

Back pain, rib pain, sciatica & symphysis pubis pain are common in pregnancy and can be reduced with acupuncture.

Breech and Posterior babies

Moxibustion can have a significant effect in helping turn breech babies. Ideally treatment is at 34-35 weeks, but still can be used later in the pregnancy.

Labour preparation

3 - 4 weeks prior to the due date a treatment to prepare the pelvis and cervix can be commenced. This is followed by one treatment per week until labour begins.

Induction

Acupuncture can provide a gentle inducement to labour if the baby is overdue and can be an effective alternate to a medical induction.
