Supporting Pregnancy & Labour
- Reduces morning sickness, stress & anxiety

- Reduces muscle aches
- Encourages a breech baby to turn

Acupuncture can help relieve some of the symptoms which you may be experiencing during pregnancy, such as morning sickness and tiredness. It also helps you to feel calmer and sleep better, enabling you deal with your everyday life easier.
During labour, there are many acupuncture points which can be rubbed by your partner to assist you through the different stages of labour. I usually meet with couples together to explain these points. Partners particularly feel that it helps them to feel more involved and gives them something useful to do.
