Pregnancy

Pregnancy may well be a woman’s first experience of acupuncture where drugs are often not recommended.

Pregnancy Acupuncture can be used to help reduce symptoms such as nausea, heartburn, anxiety, high blood pressure, carpal tunnel syndrome, oedema, symphasis pubis disorder or back pain. Many women choose acupuncture to maintain good health during pregnancy.  

 

Julia can offer professional guidance for natural choices throughout pregnancy and sees women preparing to give birth at local hospitals or from home.  

 

Acupuncture is both safe and gentle and can bring great relief throughout pregnancy.  Research studies show that acupuncture moxibustion can help turn a breech baby.   Julia also offers induction acupuncture treatments and is often recommended patients by local hospitals to encourage the start of labour when the pregnancy reaches full term.
