Acupuncture during Pregnancy and Postnatal Care

Acupuncture treatments place emphasis on promoting preventative care to strengthen the mother and baby as well as dealing with problems as they occur during pregnancy.

Some of the conditions acupuncture is used for during pregnancy:

  • Anaema
  • Anxiety
  • Tired & exhaustion
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Oedema
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • High blood pressure
  • Itching
  • Threatened miscarriage 
  • Constipation 

Labour preparation 

Acupuncture is used 3 to 4 weeks prior to the due date to prepare the pelvis and cervix followed by further treatments until labour begins. Acupuncture can provide a gentle inducement to labour if the baby is overdue and can be an alternative to medical induction. 

Postnatal care 

Acupuncture has techniques to promote recovery such as 'mother warming treatments' and dietary advice to strengthen the body. Other conditions that acupuncture may help:

  • Mastitis 
  • Postnatal Depression
  • Night Sweats 
  • Insufficient lactation 
  • After pains 

Acupuncture treatments are available at The Aston clinic with Catherine  on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

Free 15 minute consultationa are also available.
