Is Acupuncture safe during pregnancy? Absolutely! A board certified Acupuncture Physician is trained to know which points to avoid. Most of these points are what we refer to as “blood movers” and later on in the pregnancy can actually be use to induce labor.
At StillWaters Healing Center, not only are our physicians skilled at Acupuncture for Fertility but also in the prenatal care of mom. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, please let us know so we can tailor your treatment accordingly.
Acupuncture treats the following during pregnancy:
- Morning Sickness
- Back Pain
- Round Ligament Pain
- Gestational Diabetes
- Premature labor
- Premature Cervical Ripening
- Breech baby
After you have your bundle of joy, it’s important to see us a couple weeks after you’ve given birth. Postpartum can sneak up on anyone and the trials of taking care of a newborn might make lactation difficult, your immune system shot, and energy low. Acupuncture can help with all of these issues and more!
