Acupuncture in pregnancy and childbirth

Some women feel very healthy when they are pregnant. However, many endure a variety of ‘normal’ pregnancy symptoms.

    "Sam has been
   really great,
   giving me more
   frequent treatments
   as I needed them to
   help with various
   symptoms and
   supporting me
   though an exciting
   but often
   bewildering time."

Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free option, which can be effective for many pregnancy-related symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting, headaches, back and neck pain, and more.

Many women have regular treatment throughout their pregnancies to support their changing bodies and to manage tiredness. Some common acupuncture treatments in pregnancy include:

  • Optimal foetal positioning
  • Pre-labour treatments
  • Induction for labour
  • Treatment during labour
