From the moment of conception your body undergoes enormous changes to allow it to grow, carry, birth and nurse a healthy baby. These changes put huge demands on your body. Using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines we can help support you through this amazing process.
Physical discomfort often becomes an understandable problem late in a pregnancy as the hormone relaxin softens your ligaments and joints, your belly grows and your centre of gravity is pushed forward of its normal position. Acupuncture in particular is great for alleviating pain.
A weekly treatment for the final three weeks of your pregnancy is what we like to recommend, focussing on preparing the mother for the labour, supporting her recovery and smoothing the transition to parenthood.
