There are numerous reasons why some women have a relatively smooth pregnancy while others can’t wait for it to be over! But once pregnant, every woman goes through dramatic physical and emotional changes.
Chinese Medicine provides a safe, effective and natural approach to successfully managing various pregnancy “symptoms” without side effects to the mother or the baby.
For centuries, Acupuncture and specific herbs have been used to relieve many symptoms and complications during pregnancy ranging from nausea and vomiting to gestational diabetes, preventing pre-eclampsia, management of fibroids, fatigue, low back pain, headaches, heartburn, hemorrhoids, and others. In fact, regular treatment throughout pregnancy enhances the health of the mother, prevents complications and influences the development of the baby.
According to the World Health Organization, Acupuncture has also been found effective in relieving labor pain as well as significantly reducing the duration of labor. It is used during labor itself to facilitate pain relief and boost energy, but can also help stimulate contractions without the use of drugs.
Acupuncture can provide other benefits post-delivery, too. In addition to restoring a mother’s energy levels after the stress of birth and alleviating depression and anxiety, Acupuncture can be used postpartum to relieve backache, perineal or other kinds of pain.
