Acupuncture has been used for many centuries to help women get a successful pregnancy.

From the onset of pregnancy, as your body learns to adapt to the physical and hormonal changes taking place, regular acupuncture treatments will effectively treat, without medications, early pregnancy symptoms such as early morning sickness, headaches, nausea, stress, anxiety and sleeping difficulties.

Later during the pregnancy, your fluid retention problems and lack of energy issues can be greatly improved with acupuncture.

In the final stages of the pregnancy,  your acupuncturist can harmonize the hormonal and physical changes taking place as your body gradually prepares itself for the delivery.

If you are overdue, specific acupuncture points and very gentle techniques can very safely, effectively, and painlessly be used to reduce discomfort, and induce the labor contractions.
