Acupuncture can be used safely and with great results for many of the most common conditions in pregnancy. This includes backache, sciatica, nausea, vomiting, itching, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, haemorrhoids, pubic-symphysis pain, hip pain, mal-positioned foetus, and delayed labour.

Treatments are also given for post-natal complaints such as back pain, general weakness, night sweats, extreme blood loss, depression and mastitis amongst others.

Acupuncture is used with great results in the prevention of miscarriage. It is far more effective to treat recurrent miscarriage prior to getting pregnant so that any contributory imbalances may be treated.

If you are pregnant and worried about miscarriage the undertaking a program of acupuncture can be a safe, effective and beneficial treatment. In such cases approximately three months of treatments can be expected.
