Pregnancy Support

Congratulations, you’re pregnant! We offer a complete plan that addresses every stage of pregnancy. Once that embryo is safely ensconced in the womb, we will support you and your partner on every step of your exciting and miraculous journey.

First Trimester

We like to see you once weekly from the first positive pregnancy test through the first trimester to:

  • Prevent Miscarriage

  • Decrease nausea and vomiting

  • Improve energy

  • Relieve musculoskeletal pain

  • Improve sleep

Second Trimester

Since women tend to feel their best during the second trimester, visits are less frequent. Conditions we commonly address during this period include:

  • Insomnia

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Hypertension

  • Gestational diabetes

  • Low back pain

  • Leg cramps

  • Hyperemesis gravidarum

Third Trimester

Treatments during this time focus on any musculoskeletal complaints, such as low back pain that have come up as a result of your pregnancy. Ideally, this is a great time to start preparing your body for labor. We recommend having pre-birth acupuncture  treatments weekly from week 36 until delivery. Pre-birth treatments have been shown to:

  • Ripen the cervix

  • Maintain the baby in the best position for labor

  • Support energy levels for women going into labor

  • Decrease the amount of time spent in labor

  • Reduce the incidence of induction or cesarean section

Postpartum

Acupuncture after delivery can be a wonderful way to help support the new mother. Common conditions that can be addressed during this time include:

  • Fatigue

  • Insufficient lactation

  • Insomnia

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Cesarean recovery

  • Bowel irregularities

  • Blocked ducts and mastitis

We recognize that each person’s journey is different and we are committed to offering a personalized approach for you and your family’s unique needs.
