Having a baby is a beautiful and exiting time, but sometimes our bodies need a little extra help to feel better. When performed by trained and skilled professionals, like our practitioners here at The Acupuncture Room, acupuncture is safe in pregnancy and a great alternative to taking medicine.

Pregnancy issues?

The correct balance of hormones is essential for a successful pregnancy. High levels of progesterone and oestrogen are important for a healthy pregnancy but are often the cause of some common unwanted side-effects in the mother. Acupuncture can be used to treat issues that are often regarded as part of a ‘normal’ pregnancy, but can still be debilitating for the mother to endure.

Acupuncture, acupressure, cupping and moxa can be used to address a wide range of issues such as:

  • Nausea
  • Lower back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Headaches
  • Heart burn
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Breeched and posterior positioning
  • Labour preparation (from 36 weeks)
  • Preparation for VBAC, medical induction or planned Caesarean section
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Breast feeding issues

Our practitioners can offer

  • Symptomatic relief
  • Labour Preparation (from 36 weeks to encourage beneficial pregnancy hormones, aid cervical ripening and fetal positioning)
