Spring Acupuncture offers you natural and safe pregnancy support acupuncture that helps you through each stage of pregnancy, and prepares you for your new life once the baby is born.
Firstly, Congratulations! Bringing a new life into this world is something that should be cherished and celebrated. However, we here at Spring know this exciting time is not always smooth sailing. Morning sickness, body aches, tight muscles, poor sleep, digestion issues, threatened miscarriage, breech presentation are just a few of the joys of pregnancy, and the list just keeps going.
Experiencing any of these symptoms/conditions can prove to be very challenging, especially when you’re expected to continue with your day-to-day life. Acupuncture can assist you through each stage of your pregnancy allowing you to enjoy this precious time and feel that ‘Glow’. Maintaining an optimal level of physical and emotional health is vital as your body grows and changes whilst nourishing this new life.
Our labour preparation treatments will assist those who want to avoid a medically induced labour. Labour preparation acupuncture will softly guide the body to relax and naturally produce its own oxytocin. These treatments can begin anytime from 36 weeks (providing baby is in good health and position) to allow the body plenty of time to prepare for the birthing process.
Research: Breech Presentation
In December, 2012 the British Medical Journal published an article investigating the use of moxibustion in primary healthcare to correct non-vertex presentation. They concluded that moxibustion at acupuncture point BL 67 is effective and safe to correct non-vertex presentation when used between 33-35 weeks (1). Furthermore, they reported, ‘we believe moxibustion to represent a treatment option that should be considered to achieve version of the non-vertex fetus’ (1). (See Research Here)
