Women can feel nervous when it comes to using acupuncture during pregnancy. A number of trials have been carried out and these have been reviewed by the Cochrane Institute in UK (considered the ‘gold standard’ in research for evaluating randomized controlled trials).
These trials have shown that in the hands of a fully qualified acupuncturist who is a member of a professional body, acupuncture in pregnancy is both safe and effective.
It is therefore an effective option at a time when many women choose to avoid taking medicine for minor ailments. Acupuncture is a non-invasive and safe solution for your discomfort.
Acupuncture can help some women who are having difficulties during pregnancy such as :
Nausea and morning sickness
Postpartum depression and exhaustion
Back pain and sciatica
