Acupuncture is also very helpful in pregnancy for treating conditions such as morning sickness, constipation, heartburn, nausea, back pain, pubic symphisis pain and dizziness.
Closer to the birth Acupuncture can be very helpful in turning breech babies, easing lower back pain, induction (only if overdue and chemical induction date set), and easing the birthing process itself. Nicola Renovich Haven Acupuncturist; has considerable experience in treating these conditions and has undertaken specialist post graduate obstetric acupuncture training.
Pre birth Acupuncture Treatments from 36 weeks can greatly reduce the likelihood of going overdue and needing induction. Pre-birth treatments have also been shown to increase the likelihood of a smooth birth without complications.
