So You're Pregnant

Posted by Tabitha Fennell on 23 January 2016
So You're Pregnant

Here at our Gold Coast acupuncture clinic, Studio Qi, we focus on all things to do with pregnancy and over the next 9 weeks I'll be explaining how acupuncture can be your saviour.

Some conditions that go along with being pregnant can't be treated by Western Medicine due to concern for the growing baby. So that's why acupuncture is so beautiful, it doesn't put anything into or take anything out of your body, it purely just balances it.

So lets get one thing clear... Acupuncture is totally safe to have at all stages of being pregnant.

Safety tip: Make sure your Acupuncturist is accredited and has a clinic that regularly treats pregnant women. All accredited Acupuncturists are taught what points you must never use during pregnancy, so you will be safe. These points help produce oxytocin which is the hormone that will start your contractions and labour. These points are great to use at 40 weeks.

So I will go through my list of conditions but if you have any, please let me know and they will be at the top of my list for discussion.
