Preventing Miscarriage

Chromosomal abnormalities account for the vast majority of miscarriages; these are embryos that are not viable. Treatable causes of recurrent miscarriage may be hormonal, structural, immunological, or unexplained. If you have experienced a previous miscarriage, or you are at risk of miscarriage, acupuncture and botanical medicine can support you during the first trimester and beyond.

Safe & Natural Options for Managing Pregnancy Side-Effects

There’s no need to post a list here, you’re all too familiar with the symptoms! You do not need to suffer for the sake of a healthy baby. All of the treatments used are natural, effective, and safe for you both. I also provide proactive strategies for preventing pregnancy complications, such as oligohydramnios, group B strep etc.

Pre-Birth Acupuncture

Acupuncture once weekly beginning at 36 weeks has proven to decrease time in labour, decrease the need for interventions during labour, improve the efficiency of contractions, ripen the cervix, improve pelvic health, and help you manage discomfort in those last few weeks of your pregnancy. I cannot recommend it enough!

Turning a Breech Baby

The best time for treatment to turn a breech baby is 34 weeks, but naturopathic treatment can still be effective in late pregnancy. According to research, the success of acupuncture and moxibustion for turning a breech baby is up to 75-80%. The best part is, you can also perform these strategies at home.

Labour Induction

If you’ve reached your due date and there’s still no baby, it’s time for induction acupuncture and other natural techniques. Acupuncture can also be used prior to a scheduled induction date to get your baby moving.
