FAQsCommon Questions & Answers About Our Treatments For Pregnancy & Postpartum
IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?
In skilled hands, acupuncture is absolutely safe during pregnancy. We never place needles in dangerous areas that would cause damage to you or baby.
WHAT ABOUT HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS?
We are very experienced in using herbs and supplements during pregnancy. However, your comfort level is our primary concern and we will respect your wishes should you choose not to take them.
DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?
We can absolutely do this for you. For over a decade we’ve given dietary advice to many hundreds of pregnant women who have all had healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
CAN NATURAL MEDICINE REALLY HELP MY PROBLEM?
Absolutely. Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.
DO YOU DO “ACUPUNCTURE LABOR INDUCTION?”
We prefer to call it “birth facilitation” because nothing we do is forceful or overly stimulating. We have successfully helped many women to give birth on time and avoid medical induction.
WHAT ABOUT TURNING BREECH BABIES?
Acupuncture is a modality which can help turn a breech presentation safely. We feel the safety of mother and baby comes first and any attempts to manually turn your baby should be done in a hospital or OB clinic setting where baby’s heart-rate can be monitored. We will work in conjunction with your OBs recommendation.
CAN ACUPUNCTURE CAUSE CONTRACTIONS?
Yes, but only if certain points are used and those points are forcefully stimulated. We avoid points known to stimulate uterine contractions so you have nothing to worry about. Again, we’ve treated many women during pregnancy and we’ve never had a case of inducing early labor with our treatments.
We address the ROOT CAUSE of your issues without the use of drugs or other invasive procedures
