TOP 12 REASONS TO GET ACUPUNCTURE DURING PREGNANCY
Unique Benefits of Acupuncture During Pregnancy
Hooray! You’ve just gotten that long-awaited for BFP (“big fat pregnancy” test result)! Now what?
The next nine months will be full of excitement, revelations, and challenges. As your baby develops, your body will go through incredible changes
In our clinic, not only do our fertility patients struggle with getting pregnant, but staying pregnant as well. A positive pregnancy test is just one part of the baby marathon in our clinic as there is still plenty of progress to be made. Next step: staying pregnant, and healthy for the next 9 months.
From prepping the soil to tending the garden
Our Comprehensive Fertility Program is designed to “prepare the soil” for implantation. Improving egg and sperm quality before conceiving, balancing hormone levels, and strengthening the uterus so it can carry important cargo for the long haul. Now it’s time to continue to tend to that precious fruit (and mama) during pregnancy.
When performed by a well-trained practitioner, prenatal acupuncture can provide safe, effective and gentle care during this most precious time of your life. Providing you with some much needed assistance and creating the best environment for your baby’s developmental needs. These treatments can provide relief of so many of the discomforts commonly experienced during pregnancy and can make these nine months a lot less difficult. In addition, receiving acupuncture during pregnancy statistically reduces labor and delivery pains and allows for a smoother and healthier delivery.

Our mission is to help women feel their best
As a Women’s Health & Fertility specialist I am passionate about spreading the word on how Acupuncture and Herbal medicine can improve women’s health. It provides me such great joy to offer care during pregnancy to women who often think they have no other option a safe, effective, and conservative option.
We have worked with many of Jacksonville’s best midwives, and OB/GYNs providing the best adjunct prenatal care to ensure women feel their best during pregnancy. We would be happy to work with you at any stage of your pregnancy! If you are considering acupuncture to gently prepare you for labor please give us a call near week 35 for the most effective treatment series. If you have been told your babe is breech positioned we can also help! Best window of opportunity for turning breech babes is between weeks 34-37.
A word of caution:
When considering prenatal acupuncture, please seek a trained Licensed Acupuncturist with specialized training in Obstetrics.
Unfortunately, most acupuncture schools only offer a cursory introduction to obstetric care. For the most effective, painless, and SAFE treatment, it is important to go to a Licensed Acupuncturist who has completed post graduate specialized training in OB/GYN.
