Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Fertility

Week by Week Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy

During the first 6 months we recommend an acupuncture maintenance program of treatments once every 3 or 4 weeks to support your body’s energy levels, the developing fetus and any symptoms such as morning sickness, headaches, tiredness, anxiety etc.

If you have any more problematic symptoms then we would recommend weekly treatments until the symptoms are alleviated or the right balance for you has been achieved.

From week 36-37 onwards we recommend weekly treatments which focus on preparing you and your baby for birth.

In the third trimester (last 3 months) we focus on the baby’s position.  During this phase, acupuncture can correct breech or badly positioned babies and assist with labour induction.
