Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is sometimes used in the early stages of pregnancy if there are any signs that the women's body is weakening and a miscarriage threatens, or where there has been a history of miscarriages. We have designed a Pregnancy Acupuncture Programme below to give support from early pregnancy till week 12.

Pregnancy Acupuncture Programme

This programme of 10 acupuncture sessions has been designed to follow on from our IVF Acupuncture Programme and IUI Acupuncture Programme or for patients who have conceived naturally to support them from conception to their 12th week in pregnancy.

Chinese herbal medicine (optional extra) and weekly acupuncture sessions are typically used in the early stages of pregnancy where conditions such as morning sickness, anxiety, sciatica, and pelvic pain can occur, as well as problems with sleep and digestion.

At the later stages of pregnancy additional acupuncture sessions and Chinese herbal medicine can be used if the babies' growth is not optimal, and even later again acupuncture may be sought if the baby is long overdue.
