Pregnancy and Acupuncture

Women’s wellness, wellbeing, fertility, and pregnancy have been our focus ever since we began. Helping people create families is what we are here to do.

Getting pregnant, it can be easy for some but very difficult for many. Philippa Youngs understands and has spent over a decade providing a safe and nurturing space to provide care and assistance with this.

Becoming pregnant can be an anxious time. Anxiety can be even more poignant if a miscarriage has been a part of your journey.

A full range of comprehensive and safe services are on offer at Good Egg Clinic to help you on your pregnancy journey.

A diet rich in nutrition and optimized for the reproductive system, along with assisting your body to be regular and ready for a fertile future is best, and we suggest coming in before you begin your family making journey so we can help you prepare.

During pregnancy, there are many options available to you to assist your body to do all the right things. One example is acupuncture.

Acupuncture can help you relax and enjoy the great news. Pregnancy acupuncture nourishes the mother and supports you to safely carry to full term by enhancing the production of blood and promoting optimal function of your internal organs.

It is merely extraordinary what your body does and goes through as you grow your child. As a result of changes to your hormones, growing bellies & extra stress and pressure on your body, pregnancy can also include some unpleasant symptoms.

Acupuncture can be useful in relieving pregnancy-related fatigue, headaches, heartburn, hemorrhoids, carpel tunnel, sinusitis, backache, constipation, restless legs, cramps and more.

Morning sickness is a common complaint I see in the first trimester of pregnancy. Using specific acupuncture points to harmonize the stomach and rebalance the body can bring you relief.

With all the work that your body is doing it is little wonder that fatigue is common during the first and third trimester of pregnancy. Acupuncture at regular intervals can optimize your sleep and the way your body uses its fuel to sustain you throughout your pregnancy. Evidence shows acupuncture can provide a substantial and positive increase in energy levels.
