Congratulations, You’re Pregnant!
Can I get acupuncture when pregnant? Of Course!
Acupuncture assists in preventing miscarriage that is not due to chromosomal anomalies. Whether you’ve had previous miscarriages, assisted reproductive technologies (ART), or are newly pregnant, acupuncture treatment supports your pregnancy and the health of the fetus. Since 90% of miscarriages occur within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, your practitioner will discuss the appropriate treatment protocol for you during your pregnancy.
During your pregnancy, your body is constantly changing. Acupuncture helps maintain your health during pregnancy and assists in avoiding possible complications such as fatigue, nausea, low back pain, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, gestational diabetes, hyperemesis gravidarum (severe vomiting), and so forth. Further, acupuncture helps increase blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the placenta equaling a health, well-developed child.
Acupuncture during the last trimester can help you deliver on time if you are planning a vaginal birth and shorten your labor to make it more efficient. Acupuncture is also used to induce past-due mommies and turn breech babies.
Post Partum Recovery
After delivering your bundle of joy, you may experience swelling, lack of energy, depression, weight gain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and lower back pain. Acupuncture can help you get back on track so that a healthy momma equals a healthy baby.
