How does acupuncture support pregnancy and labour?

Acupuncture offers a safe and effective way to support pregnancy and prepare for labour. Here are some ways acupuncture can provide relief:

  • From morning sickness to back pain and insomnia, acupuncture can provide relief from common pregnancy symptoms, enhancing comfort and quality of life.
  • Acupuncture can help balance hormones throughout pregnancy, supporting overall well-being and reducing the risk of complications.
  • Acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety levels during pregnancy, promoting a calm and positive mindset for both mother and baby.
  • Acupuncture techniques such as moxibustion can help encourage the baby to adopt the optimal position for birth, reducing the likelihood of breech or posterior presentation.
  • Acupuncture treatments in the weeks leading up to labour can help prepare the body for childbirth, promoting cervical ripening and reducing the need for medical interventions.
