At The Centre for Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture pregnant women receive individualised treatments that have been shown to be safe and effective in helping improve the experience of pregnancy while supporting the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby.

 

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes dramatic changes to support the growth of the baby. These changes can also result in a range of physical and emotional symptoms from morning sickness to pelvic pain to anxiety.

 

For over 3000 years, traditional Chinese medicine has viewed pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal recovery as an important window of opportunity to enhance the woman’s wellbeing and to promote the health of the baby long after birth.

 

We focus on providing preventative care to strengthen the mother and baby, and also offer a range of gentle and natural treatments to address problems as they occur during pregnancy.

 

Chinese medicine and acupuncture can be used to treat a range of common pregnancy symptoms including:

 

• Nausea – acupuncture is often very effective in reducing both the severity and incidence of morning sickness, nausea and vomiting during pregnancy

 

• Muscular-skeletal pain – back pain, rib pain, sciatica and pelvic pain are common in pregnancy and can all be markedly reduced with acupuncture

 

• Anaemia

 

• Anxiety

 

• Constipation

 

• Carpal Tunnel syndrome

 

• Heartburn

 

• Haemorrhoids

 

• Insomnia

 

• Headaches

 

• Oedema

 

• Sinus problems

 

• Threatened miscarriage

 

• Tiredness and exhaustion
