Pregnancy Acupuncture in North London
We offer support for each trimester.
Acupuncture can be beneficial during pregnancy for:
- Birth preparation
- Serious musculoskeletal pain e.g. back pain, sciatic nerve pain and pelvic pain
- Turning babies from breech to head down presentation
- Severe vomiting (hyperemesis)
Acupuncture is a natural and gentle treatment which may help prepare for labour.
Acupuncture can be used to treat musculoskeletal problems. The insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body is proven to reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce endorphins (natural pain relieving chemicals), melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote wellbeing).
Severe vomiting (hyperemesis) can be experienced during pregnancy, usually during the first 12 weeks. Acupuncture can help to relieve the discomfort of hyperemesis.
“Having gone 7 days overdue with my second pregnancy, I decided to try acupuncture to avoid the need to be medically induced in hospital and also a second caesarean section. I had a very traumatic time in hospital and was anxious not to have another bad experience. i was recommended to see Colette by my reflexologist and in just three sessions, i went into labour and am now the proud mother of my beautiful daughter. Thank you, Colette for all your guidance and support, The acupuncture was amazing and most definitely worked! “
