Treatments to Support You During Pregnancy and Beyond
Pregnancy is an exciting time, but there can be challenges, from pesky annoyances to major joy-stealing pains in the butt (and hips, and wrists and back!).
Acupuncture can help you enjoy pregnancy!
This very relaxing treatment can relieve the various pains that can come with growing a baby, from heartburn to carpal tunnel, sinusitis to pelvic pain, plus:
- reduce nausea
- improve sleep
- calm anxiety
- relieve pain
Acupuncture can help prepare you for labour!
Toward the end of pregnancy, it is especially lovely to set aside some relaxing time just for you. While you enjoy an acu-nap, acupuncture can:
- boost your energy reserves
- encourage a breech or occiput posterior baby to turn (week 34 is ideal for breech!)
- prepare your body for an efficient labour
Acupuncture can support your recovery after giving birth!
- support healing
- relieve night sweats
- calm afterpains
- improve milk supply
But is acupuncture safe in pregnancy?
Yes! The safety of prenatal acupuncture is well established in the literature. MaryBeth has pursued further training in prenatal acupuncture in the past, and is currently in a nine month-long program to deepen her knowledge and skill to provide expert care in pregnancy. She is a member of the Obstetrical Acupuncture Association. You and your baby are in good hands.
