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.
