Pregnancy Care

Many women are faced with a variety of ailments that can arise during pregnancy.  Acupuncture may be able to help pregnant women with:

Nausea and vomiting, fatigue, constipation, pregnancy related heartburn/reflux, pregnancy related musculoskeletal pains and cramps, dizziness, aphonia (loss of voice in pregnancy), oedema, pain related to carpal tunnel syndrome, discomfort caused by haemorrhoids and vulvar varicosities. 

At AcuHealth we understand that every pregnancy journey is different and we will individualise your treatments to assist you in reaching your full health potential during pregnancy, making this a more enjoyable time of your life.


PREPARATION FOR LABOUR

Many women would prefer to minimise medical intervention in the induction of labour.  Although there is no substantial evidence to support the use of acupuncture in the induction of labour, our pregnant clients often turn towards natural treatments in preparing their body for the birth of their child . For these reasons, our practitioners often see women from as early as 32 weeks onwards to provide support and assist with the final stages of pregnancy.
