Acupuncture for Obstetrics and Pregnancy-related Conditions

 


 

Morning Sickness” Nausea, Retching and Vomiting

Early stage pregnancy and hormonal imbalances manifesting as nausea, vomiting and wretching can be effectively treated with acupuncture treatment. Treatment involves one or two acupuncture needles that are gently manipulated to settle the stomach Qi and balance the system. It is a very safe and efffective treatment, even in these very early stages of pregnancy..

 

Turning Breech Babies

Acupuncture and TCM can successfully turn breech babies with very gentle and relaxing techiniques that can also be adopted at home. By safely realigning the uterine energies, baby will gently and smoothly shift into the appropriate position. This may or may not include acupuncture treatment and/or moxibustion (heat source) treatment.

 

Inducing Labour

Treatment for labour induction gently moves Qi and Blood circulation, tonifying and relieving Qi energy stagnation and gently activating (though not forcefully contracting) the uterus. Acupuncture is a very safe and effective treatment to gently and naturally induce labour for overdue pregnancies.

 


 

Post-Natal Care

 

Mother will experience severe Qi and Blood exhaustion during the labour process. Sleepness nights and other stresses involved in the early stages of motherhood show how important acupuncture and TCM (including Chinese herbal medicine) treatment is, to rebuild the constitution after labour. This not only to tonify the depleted and stressed organ system and overall energies, but to also prevent these deficiencies leading to common post-natal diseases such as post-natal depression, mastitis, insuffucient breast lactation and other breast-feeding problems.

 


 

If you are suffering with these or any other post-natal conditions, acupuncture and TCM is also very effective at treating these disorders, particularly when combined with Chinese herbal medicine. Similarly, it is always an advisable nourishing and tonifying medicine immediately after labour to replenish the mother, aiding her swift recuperation of strength and endurance necessary for the early stages of motherhood.

 


 

If you are pregnant and would like to know more about how acupuncture and TCM can help you, book an appointment at one of our clinic locations, or contact us for more information.
