My main passion and focus is all things hormonal. Working with and helping pregnant mums to be at their healthiest is where I'm happiest. Having had three pregnancies and births of my own, I also know first hand how well acupuncture can support you through the nine months, your birth and into motherhood. Our website studioqi.com.au has some informative articles on what we can treat during pregnancy and just how safe it is. 85% of my clients are women in all stages of pregnancy, so I treat a lot of different disorders that come with being pregnant. Acupuncture naturally brings the balance back to the internal organs and muscles, promoting qi, blood and oxygen to all areas of the body. The pregnant woman's body is amazing and generally very few treatments are needed to get a great result.
Here is a list of common treatments:
1. Morning sickness
2. Supporting tiredness by boosting energy
3. Shoulder and back pain
4. Carpal tunnel
5. Heart burn
6. Headaches - migraines
7. Fluid retention - vaginal varicose veins
8. Breech baby turn around
9. Induction at 40 weeks
10. Anxiety about giving birth
12. 4 weekly treatments before birth - this gets their body and mind ready for a streamline birth, and has been shown through studies that there will be less intervention with labour.
13. Milk let down
14. Post natal depression
Of course all treatments that the mother has will enhance qi, oxygen and blood flow to their baby.
I'd love to answer any questions you may have so please don't hesitate to call me or email me with your inquires.
Best, Tabitha Fennell
