Are you looking for natural ways to support your general wellbeing during pregnancy?
Perhaps you are feeling stressed and run down and finding it harder to cope this time then in previous pregnancies?
Maybe you’ve been diagnosed ‘high risk’ and are looking for options to help you and your baby have the best possible chance of a natural delivery?
The treatment of pregnancy related ailments with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs has been around for thousands of years and offers a highly effective system of medicine that can enhance a healthy pregnancy and treat many common ailments during this special time.
The same principles that the ancients used to balance the pregnant body for health and wellbeing are as relevant today as they have been throughout centuries of use and offer a safe and effective alternative to complement your antenatal care.
Although Acupuncture and Chinese Herbals may be new to you, they work in treating a wide range of ailments in pregnancy. Both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbals can increase blood flow to the ovaries, optimise ovarian functioning and follicular development, improve egg quality and a healthy corpus luteum and decrease the incidence of miscarriage. They also increase blood flow through the uterus, promoting a healthy endometrial lining and optimising placental functioning.
The result of this increased blood flow to the uterus and placenta include increased delivery of oxygen and nutrition to the baby—giving bub the best chance of being healthy.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the 13 lunar months of pregnancy have the potential to be profoundly transformative and powerful in a woman’s life, and it is a time where improved vitality and deep joy is available. Unfortunately, not all women have this experience of pregnancy, so much so that many women expect pregnancy to be full of discomfort rather then a sense of improved wellbeing.
I’ve had many clients tell me they have been ‘lucky’ to not have any complaints during pregnancy rather then realise this isn’t ‘lucky’ this is ‘healthy’.
