For over 3000 years Traditional Chinese Medicine has promoted specialised treatment for women in pregnancy care and postpartum recovery.
Today this care is becoming increasingly popular and used by acupuncturists and specially trained midwives in countries such as Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, and New Zealand where acupuncture is available in specialised ante natal clinics and maternity hospitals.
Acupuncture to Enhance Your Wellbeing During Pregnancy
Pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal recovery are viewed in traditional Chinese medicine as a window of opportunity to enhance the woman’s well being. Conversely, if adequate care is not taken the resulting problems may continue long after the birth.
Value is therefore placed on promoting preventative care to strengthen the mother and baby as well as dealing with problems as they occur during pregnancy. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for women throughout different stages of pregnancy.
