Acupuncture during Pregnancy Delayed Labor, Nausea, Miscarriage.

Acupuncture is very save when done properly. During any stage of pregnancy.
Initial Acupuncture treatments are aimed at fertility, if the patients was diagnosed with infertility. (Usually defined by Western Medicine as trying to conceive for at least a year. Most natural conception occurs within 6 months of treatments, however I had at least a dozen of cases of conception after as little as 3 to 10 Acupuncture visits. Not a  very common occurrence however).

In the first trimester:
we use acupuncture to prevent miscarriage and reduce nausea and vomiting. There are special points that allow put body to put a stronger hold on fetus. There are also points and treatments to reduce nausea and vomiting and of course stress !

Second Trimester:
Acupuncture can regulate and prevent cases of Delayed Labor, Breach Baby and just make the whole birthing experience smoother.

Third Trimester:
Is more a preparation for delivery and addressing, if present Breach Baby, Delayed Labor and any physical discomfort like sciatica, back pain (from gaining weight etc.)

After delivery and after months of nurturing the fetus, the woman's body is under strain and it needs to regain balance and restore energy to normal levels. And that is what we do after. Some
may suffer from depression or stress and sleepless nights etc.
Unfortunately less women come at this stage, though it is equally important, but understandably explainable by the fact that the new Mom is so preoccupied with the new addition.
