Acupuncture in Pregnancy

Acupuncture in Pregnancy: Traditional Chinese Medicine has promoted specialized treatment for women in pregnancy care and postpartum recovery for over 3000 years. Pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal recovery are viewed as essential to and as a window of opportunity to enhance a woman’s well being and health. Therefore if proper care is not taken the resulting problems may affect a woman for her whole life.

Today this care is becoming increasingly widespread and is used by acupuncturists and specially trained midwives in countries such as Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, and New Zealand.
