Acupuncture has been found to be a safe and effective option for helping to address many health issues, including fertility, pregnancy and postpartum issues. Many women report experiencing physical discomforts such as morning sickness, pregnancy back pain, and fatigue during pregnancy.
At our acupuncture clinic in Auckland NZ, we have a team of professional acupuncturists who can help you relieve these discomforts and promote a healthy pregnancy using TCM.
Acupuncture has been shown as an effective method of helping to relieve various pregnancy discomforts like lower back and pelvic pain, pregnancy sciatica as well as morning sickness. You can also employ Chinese acupuncture as a way to help prepare for childbirth with what are referred to specifically as labour acupuncture treatments.
After delivery, many women find acupuncture treatments essential for rebuilding their Qi and blood, increasing their milk supply, and dealing with postpartum depression.
Several studies have been done to measure the effects of acupuncture on pregnancy-related pain and discomfort. Most, like this pregnancy-related acupuncture study which measured the positive impact acupuncture has on low back and pelvic pain in pregnancy, found it to be a helpful modality for women suffering from pain and other pregnancy-related difficulties.
