Acupuncture is a safe, drug free treatment choice to support you and your baby throughout all the stages of your pregnancy - from morning sickness to labour induction.  This fact sheet on obstetrics produced by the British Acupuncture Council summaries research on how acupuncture may be of benefit during pregnancy.

Your traditional Acupuncturist may employ a range of traditional Chinese medicine techniques, depending on your condition.  For example, Acupressure (firm sustained pressure to a specific acu-point) or moxa (burning herb) may be used with, or without the use of needles.  As traditional Acupuncture is an holistic treatment, it will be decided which treatment modality/ies would best suit you at your initial consultation.
