acupuncture during pregnancy

annelies espeel

hi there,

In this blog is about an indication of frequency of treatment options during pregnancy.

1) prevention-wise come in once a month. this will prevent lots of symptoms during pregnancy and at birth. good qi (energy)  and blood flow, strong jing (essence) is of the utmost importance for you and your baby.

2) from week 37 onwards come in once a week. This to smoothen the labour, make sure you are less stressed.

3)women who got pregnant with IVF/ IUI: come in once a week until week 12 to strengthen your womb, endometrium, and reduce your stress.

4) when you have complaints such as nausea, cold, vertigo, hot flushes, digestive troubles, swollen ankles, allergies... acupuncture definitely helps to reduce/relieve your symptoms, the frequency is depending on your symptoms.

5) baby in breech position from week 34 onwards, come in 1-3 times. there is a 30% chance your baby will turn without need of too much manipulation or even fear of having a c-section done.

IMPORTANT: when you know you are pregnant: ALWAYS tell your therapist, masseur ! they should be aware because some points can cause problems.
