Acupuncture may be extremely useful during pregnancy as it offers a drug-free treatment option for a multitude of problems that can arise during pregnancy. This may include:
- morning sickness
- sciatica and symphysis pubis (pelvic) pain
- musculoskeletal pain
- low energy
- fluid retention
- and to gently prepare the body for labour.
Acupuncture may be used to assist energy levels, improve sleep and enable the body to deal better with the stresses of pregnancy.
