Growing a new life puts demands on the female body that can result in many unpleasant symptoms.  Yet at a time when we might desire it most, medication is often not a safe option.  Acupuncture safely supports the body’s natural processes as it adjusts to the dramatic hormonal changes of pregnancy while encouraging healthy fetal growth.  Traditional Chinese Medicine can help alleviate these common pregnancy and post-partum symptoms without dangerous side-effects:

  • morning sickness
  • fatigue
  • swelling
  • headaches and migraines
  • heartburn
  • acid reflux
  • insomnia
  • constipation
  • back pain
  • sciatica
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • depression and anxiety
  • post-C-section issues
  • lactation problems

When appropriate, a small number of the safest herbs can be used in pregnancy.  Our herbs go through the most rigorous testing to ensure that they are correctly identified and free of contaminants.  Simple herbal prescriptions have been shown to help calm the fetus and prevent miscarriage.
