Pregnancy conditions which may be treated include:
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pelvic pain
  • Other musculoskeletal complaints
  • Sciatica
  • Mild anxiety and depression
  • Acupressure during labour for pain relief

Acupuncture can be used as a routine pre-birth preparation to help promote efficient labour and reduce labour time. It can also be used to induce cervical ripening when a woman's due date has been reached.

Pelvic & Musculo-skeletal pain - the combination of "hands on" treatment such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, appropriate stretches and stabilizing exercises with acupuncture is particularly effective at dealing with pelvic pain in pregnancy.
