Why acupuncture for pregnancy?
Acupuncture is safe and effective during your pregnancy and can help with a number of problems associated with pregnancy, such as nausea, vomiting, pelvic pain, stress, sciatica, back pain, anxiety, insomnia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. There really is no need for you to suffer any of those symptoms as with regular acupuncture treatments you can look forward to the arrival of your baby in a relaxed and pain free best self.
Following delivery, acupuncture is beneficial in the cases of insufficient lactation, wound healing and scar tissue repair, and post-natal depression.
I often work in collaboration with midwifes to ensure patients go through a healthy and stress-free pregnancy.
I also provide training services to midwives and birthing partners wishing to provide further support at home and at birth using acupressure and massage to enhance the effects of acupuncture treatments.
How I work with you
This is the most advanced pregnancy and pre- and post-natal care based on authentic Chinese acupuncture adjusted to the needs of a modern mother and supported by research that confirms acupuncture efficacy.
I aim to work with you both in early stages of your pregnancy and in preparation for birth, as well as extend care in a postpartum period. Your acupuncture treatments are always reviewed according to pregnancy stages, your symptoms and your constitution.
I am very lucky to be working with a team of birth work experts The Happy Birth Club, ante natal classes with a difference in West London, as their maternity acupuncture expert, helping hundreds of women achieve their best birth experience stress and pain-free.
To spread the word about how using acupuncture in pregnancy throughout different stages of gestation can improve your birth experience, I was invited to contribute a section on acupuncture benefits that was published in The Happy Birth book this April.
