Acupuncture is versatile for pregnancy related issues. It is safe. It naturally brings the body back in balance so that the the problems do not have to be intervened with medication.
We had success with a variety of issues:
1. The first delivery was difficult, prolonged, and painful. With acupuncture for 3 weeks prior to term, the second delivery was smoother, quicker, and less painful.
2. Acupuncture reduced nausea and vomiting, which is common in the first trimester.
3. Acupuncture reduced low back pain, which is common in the third trimester. We also treated premature contraction, which threatened pregnancy.
4. Acupuncture accelerated cervix dilation past term date.
