What can an acupuncturist help a pregnant women with?

An Acupuncturist can offer a safe and effective treatment for many of the common discomforts associated with a pregnancy. During the first trimester, acupuncture can reduce nausea and vomiting, fatigue, anxiety, constipation. It can also help to prevent miscarriages, particularly if someone has a history of repeated miscarriages. During the second trimester, acupuncture can eliminate aches and pains that appear due to changing posture and shifts in weight. Much research has been done to show that acupuncture is effective in eliminating pelvic pain, sciatica, low back and upper back tension, and headaches. Finally, in the third trimester, acupuncture can turn breech and posterior babies, prepare the body for labor and naturally induce labor.
