Threatened Miscarriage

Threatened Miscarriage

Threatened Miscarriage is another area where acupuncture may be helpful to relieve the signs of threatened miscarriage and help with lower abdominal cramping and spotting,most Obstetricians and Gyneacologists adopt a wait and see approach in this situation, and there is really not a great deal that they can offer a women in this unfortunate situation. I have used Acupuncture in a number of instances in my clinic. If at the first signs of a possible threatened miscarriage, signs like lower abdominal cramping, collicky pain refering from the lower abdomen around to the lower back, spotting or bleeding occur, if the woman contacts her Acupuncturist to let him or her know what the symptoms are, their Acupuncturist should then immediately advise their client to contact their GP, Gynaecologist or Obstetrician for medical advice, if there is no alternative offered,then an acupuncture treatment may be offered  to help in the treatment  of a threatened miscarriage, but treatment should start as soon as possible, I advise all my pregnant women clients that if they have even the slightest signs of a threatened misscarriage to call me immediately, it doesnt matter what time of day or what day it is just call me once they have been in touch with their Medical Practitioner, I have gone to my clinic at 5am on a Sunday morning and treated one of my clients. If you are a practitioner who deals with conception , pregancy or fertilty you must expect to be called out at all hours of the day and night in a situation where miscarriage is a possibility, it is imperative that treatment be given as soon as possible if you feel that you may be able to help with signs of a  threatened  miscarriage.
