ACUPUNCTURE DURING PREGNANCY


Many women want to have acupuncture during their pregnancies.   Research suggests that it may help with lots of common issue, though as with most research into complementary therapies generally there is not enough data to definitely prove (or disprove) its efficacy.   However, I believe that acupuncture can be really beneficial for ailments that are seen as par for the course in pregnancy particularly when women are worried about taking medication.


Acupuncture can be very effective in treating:

 

  • Morning sickness
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Breech presentation
  • Miscarriage
  • Induction of labour when overdue dates
