Pregnancy care

Pregnancy care

Northside Acupuncture offers pregnancy support treatments, the first Trimester is generally when Acupuncture can be the most beneficial for the expectant mother, wether it be to help with Nausea and Morning sickness, Threatened Miscarriage or just Tiredness and lack of Energy, weekly treatments have shown to be very beneficial during the first Trimester. Then an Acupunture treatment every six weeks during the pregnancy is recommended, up until 34 weeks when Pre Birth Acupuncture begins, this is a weekly treatment that helps soften the tendons in the Pelvis, Hips and Pubic Symphisis, helps clear Fetal Toxins that have been passed from mother to fetus,  helps softens and ripen the Cervix, and research has shown that the pre birth Acupuncture  reduces the  actual labour time by half, on average labour time with out Acupuncture is 10 hours, with the pre birth acupuncture it is on average 4 to 5 hours and sometimes even less.

At 40 weeks or if the baby has gone past it's due date Acupuncture Induction Treatments are available, this is a much more gentle and subtle form of inducing contractions and labour than a medical induction at the hospital.
