What Your Treatment Would Look Like
Acupuncture treatments support those who are just beginning to family plan as well as those who have a history of infertility or miscarriage. We generally recommend starting with three months of weekly or bi-weekly treatment, after which we will evaluate our progress and revise our treatment plan as needed.
In addition to regulating hormones and boosting fertility, acupuncture stimulates the body to repair and regenerate tissues and blood cells. By doing so, treatments tone the uterus, bring circulation to the reproductive organs, and build a flourishing uterine lining. This helps your get body pregnancy-ready and also assists in your postpartum recovery.
Your acupuncture treatment may include moxibustion and cupping therapy and, if applicable, we will prescribe herbal formulas to enhance your treatment. Our approach integrates both Western and Chinese Medicine, and we are happy to collaborate with whoever you already have on your wellness team.
Acupuncture is very safe during pregnancy and regular treatments in the first trimester are highly recommended to support early implantation and development. Once pregnant we generally move to a once a month treatment schedule (especially at the beginning of trimesters) to facilitate a smooth pregnancy but we may opt for more if you are encountering symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, headaches, body pain, carpal tunnel, insomnia or other issues unique to you.
Regular Acupuncture care through pregnancy has been show to facilitate natural labour induction and promote optimal baby position in preparation for childbirth.
