Acupuncture has been used for over 3000 years in China as a specialised treatment in pregnancy. It is an excellent treatment throughout pregnancy to tackle some less enjoyable aspects to being pregnant at a time where drugs may not be safe to use.
It can be used for birth preparation: a series of treatments from week-36 to prepare women for childbirth. Research has demonstrated that pre-birth acupuncture reduces the time spent in labour. It can also be used to turn breech babies: research is ongoing but results suggest an 80% success rate.
Wherever you are in your pregnancy journey, Maria is here to support you. Contact Maria to discuss how acupuncture can help you.
Deeply rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine is an extensive post-partum protocol known as the fourth trimester. The first 1-3 months after birth are to help moms recover from the stress of pregnancy, the trauma of delivery and to help rejuvenate the body.
Childbirth can be very draining on the mom in both energy and blood. There can also be a lot of different birth complications that can cause problems later on. In addition it takes time for the hormones activated during pregnancy to get back to normal.
With acupuncture Maria helps repair and re-align your body and mind’s energy to restore balance and wellness.
