Starting a family can be a really special and exciting time, but sometimes pregnancy and even the months after childbirth can come with a number of challenges for many women. Symptoms can range from morning sickness to back aches or postpartum depression. To alleviate these, there are a number of things you may need to adjust so you can feel your best.
HOW ACUPUNCTURE SUPPORTS YOU DURING PREGNANCY:
Acupuncture is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine, used to re-balance energy known as “qi.” The needles promote better blood circulation, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance one’s immune system and strengthen the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
During your pregnancy, it can ease the different ailments for all three trimesters such as:
HOW INCREASED BLOOD CIRCULATION SUPPORTS YOUR BABY’S DEVELOPMENT:
During pregnancy, the unborn baby (fetus) depends on its mother for nourishment and oxygen. Since the fetus doesn’t breathe air, their blood circulates differently than it does after birth:
All the necessary nutrition, oxygen, and life support from the mother’s blood goes through the placenta and to the baby through blood vessels in the umbilical cord.
Waste products and carbon dioxide from the baby are sent back through the umbilical cord blood vessels and placenta to the mother’s circulation to be eliminated.
Acupuncture can be vital for delivery support, especially in cases of BREACH POSITION, and can even induce labor, when necessary.
Once your baby is safe, acupuncture can also be used if you are experiencing postpartum symptoms such as depression, anxiety, restlessness, loss of appetite and insomnia.

HypnoBirthing is a type of natural childbirth where the mother is in a conscious but hypnotic state during labor to achieve an easier birth.
HypnoBirthing aims to help a woman deal with any fear or anxiety she may have around birth.
Her body is relaxed and less likely to release adrenaline and other stress hormones, that can cause anxiousness, and prolong the labor.
It is important for the mother and companion to have thoroughly practiced this process before labor, with a Hypnotherapist. For optimal effectiveness, it is recommended to have five to six sessions starting at around week 30 of the pregnancy.
Massage Therapy is widely used in all cultures to evoke feelings of deep relaxation and reduced anxiety. During pregnancy this need for relief is crucial!
Prenatal massage can help to relieve aches in your back and neck, and address leg cramps. Fewer aches and pains can lead to a better night’s sleep which is essential for an expecting mother’s health!
Prenatal massage can also;
Reduce nervous tension
Help relieve depression or anxiety
After birth, a professional massage can help the body relax, promote blood circulation and help in the body’s recovery!
Your therapist will be specially trained in how to position and support your body throughout the massage.
Exercise and movement is considered vital for maintaining mental fitness, and can reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Physical activity produces endorphins, which act as natural painkillers, improving the ability to sleep, which in turn reduces stress.
However, go easy on yourself at this time! Love and embrace your growing body, fill your heart with gratitude, and move with joy! Let go of the need to stick to a regimented workout routine, allow ease and fun into your life with things like yoga and dance.
