Pregnancy Acupuncture with Chloe Player – Mona Vale, Northern Beaches
With a passion for working with pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy I use acupuncture, cupping, moxa and some acupressure to achieve the most comfortable pregnancy possible.
Due to the fact that acupuncture has very few side effects, many pregnant women now seek this alternative to drug therapy for a number of common pregnancy complaints. Studies have shown that acupuncture can help with Prenatal support including relief from morning sickness, pregnancy induced migraine, back pain including symphysis pubis and hip pain, high blood pressure, diabetes, breech, insomnia, anxiety, birth preparation and induction.
Acupuncture is also commonly used to treat headaches, migraines, high blood pressure, sinusitis, fatigue, skin problems, cold and flu, insomnia, stress and anxiety.
Something I have been seeing a lot in clinic lately is breech and full term pregnancies seeking acupuncture to help avoid medical intervention – whilst it’s often successful it’s the readiness of the baby and stage of the pregnancy that determines the outcome. I suggest starting labour preparation acupuncture from 36 weeks and for breech and posterior bubs 34 -36 weeks.
Don’t forget to have acupuncture post bub –
I regularly help ladies with mastitis, poor milk flow, plantar fasciitis, wrist tendonitis, anxiety, exhaustion and low iron postnatally. It can be hard to make it in for treatments but in our clinic, we make sure babies are most welcome and help you to relax as much as possible.
Whichever stage of pregnancy or trying to conceive you are at I would love to be able to help you have the best experience during your birth or pregnancy possible. Feel free to get in contact today.
