Pregnancy Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is a natural, safe and effective way to support both the expectant mother and baby in optimising a healthy pregnancy and childbirth. Having been in continuous use for over 2,000 years, traditional Chinese medicine & acupuncture have proven effective at relieving many discomforts and complications that can occur during these precious 9 months.

Labour Preparation:

From week 36 weeks onwards, weekly acupuncture treatments are given to help:
* Regulate hormones and promote relaxation
* Encourage baby into a favourable position
* Promote natural softening of the cervix & dilation

* Tone the muscles of the uterus
* Improve energy for the demands of labour
Prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for the birth 

Postnatal Care - The Golden Month
Postnatally acupuncture is effective in helping with recovering from childbirth as it promotes energy, sleep, tones the uterus, eases pain and improves breast milk production. If the birth is complicated or traumatic for any reason acupuncture is effective in helping with recovery from surgery, post natal depression and post traumatic stress. 
If you are considering using natural methods, and would like to know more on how the ancient art of acupuncture can support you in your motherhood journey, please contact Tamarin today.
