Tricia post on December 3rd, 2012

There are many ways acupuncture can be helpful during and post pregnancy.  It is also often used to help in cases of infertility.  During pregnancy it can help relieve nausea and vomiting, ease body discomfort and growing pains, and aid in inducing labour.  If a woman is treated a few times before her delivery it can help calm her down in preparation for delivery.  Post pregnancy treatments focusing on aiding the woman’s recovery from delivery and the pregnancy itself.  It has been known to aid in breastfeeding if a woman is short of milk.
