Many women that have come to me for help with fertility then stay on during their pregnancies to help manage the physical symptoms that come during each trimester, such as morning sickness, fatigue, anxiety, low back pain and insomnia. Acupuncture treatment is tailored to fit the needs of the soon-to-be Mommy and her lifestyle.
Most of my clients choose to have weekly treatments to stay balanced emotionally and physically, to adjust to the different changes they’re experiencing in their bodies and to keep stress levels low. They often come weekly for the entire pregnancy or at least through the first trimester.
For those patients that I haven’t seen much during their pregnancy, they will often return toward the end of their pregnancy to prepare themselves emotionally and physically for their upcoming delivery. Heartburn, constipation, fatigue and pre-delivery anxieties usually arise during these last weeks of pregnancy prompting women to come back in for a bit of treatment.
