I’ve had a lot of success with my patients, helping them fall pregnant or relieving pain and stress. Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture during the third trimester of pregnancy are normally used for treatment of these 4 areas.
Reduce Pregnancy Pelvic And Back Pain With Acupuncture
During the your 3rd Trimester your pelvic ligaments soften to ready for labour and your growing baby bump will combine to shift your centre of gravity. This makes you susceptible to a back injury. You shouldn’t lift heavy objects and at all times avoid sudden movements.
Research has found acupucture effective in gently relieving back and pelvic pain during pregnancy and my patients have reported the same to me personally.
Turn Breeched Baby With Chinese Medicine
Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment for turning a breeched baby. This involves burning Moxa above certain points of the body, which have a warming effect and stimulate the turning of your baby.
Acupuncture In Preparation For Labour
Want a shorter and smoother labour?
Acupuncture in preparation for labour starts around week 35 and research shows 1/3 redcution in epidurals, 1/3 reduction in emergency caesarean and 1/3 reduction in inductions.
Treatments are weekly from week 35 until birth.
Promote Contractions With Acupuncture To Induce Labour
If you arrive at your due date, you can use acupuncture prior to your induction date to increase your chances of labour starting without being induced. Several treatments are usually needed and can be performed daily.
