01 May Acupuncture in pregnancy on the Wellpdx blog
I recently wrote a blog post for Wellpdx highlighting five common pregnancy discomforts that acupuncture can help alleviate. From heartburn and constipation to sinusitis and pubic pain, acupuncture excels at supporting healthy pregnancies. As the pregnancy draws closer to the end, points can be included to help prepare the body for a timely labor and birth. If baby is in a less than optimal position for labor, such as breech or posterior, there are points that can gently encourage the baby to move on its own. Acupuncture also provides a quiet moment to slow down and simply be in your body and with your baby. Read the full post to learn more.
