There are many changes physically and emotionally throughout a pregnancy, birth and in the postpartum period. A number of health concerns during pregnancy are considered 'par for the course' because they are not easily alleviated with western medicine. As many conventional pharmaceuticals cannot be used during pregnancy, this is a time when complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, are especially helpful. Because it does not introduce any substance into the body, acupuncture is ideally suited to treat the following conditions:

    "There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don't ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it." -Sheryl Feldman
