Acupuncture for pregnancy & birth

Acupuncture for pregnancy and birth is a completely safe and natural treatment that can be used in combination with reflexology from the early stages right the way through to birth preparation.

We love supporting people during their pregnancy and find that treatments offer relief when all other options are not possible or haven’t been successful. A lot of people love to combine both acupuncture and reflexology during their pregnancy and both can be an excellent way to avoid an overdue labour and help turn a breech baby.

Anxiety in Pregnancy

We understand that pregnancy can be difficult, especially if you have been through fertility treatment, miscarriage and infertility struggles before getting to this point. Many people who came to us for fertility support, move to pregnancy support once they have conceived and it’s one of the most rewarding parts of this work. We know that being pregnant after loss and/or a difficult road to conception isn’t the end of the journey and that it can be both stressful and cause a lot of anxiety. People find that continuity of support and care with us can help alleviate some of these issues, especially during the first 12 weeks.

Preparation for labour and pre-birth acupuncture and reflexology

Pre-birth acupuncture and reflexology offers a safe treatment with the aim of promoting natural labour. You can use one or both therapies and both are ideally started from around 36 weeks.
