Acupuncture and Pregnancy

pregnant-womanAcupuncture has many benefits in pregnancy. It may help relieve fatigue and morning sickness in the early weeks and alleviate back pain/sciatica, pelvic pain (pubis symphysis).

To prepare for labour, we recommend a weekly program of “pre-birth” acupuncture as you approach your due date (from about 35 weeks). Ann uses various styles of Acupuncture to help with the following pregnancy-related issues (other issues also respond – you are always welcome to call to discuss your specific needs):

  • Morning sickness
  • Tiredness/exhaustion
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Swollen ankles and fingers
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Indigestion, acid reflux
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sciatica and low back pain

Ann is very experienced in working with women at all stages of pregnancy and after birth. Acupuncture treatments are eligible for health-fund rebates.
