Many women in Melbourne are aware of the benefits of acupuncture during pregnancy, such as preventing miscarriage, keeping mother and baby relaxed and calm along with treating mild side effects that occur throughout. I am always amazed at how cognisant mothers are these days when it comes to birth preparation.
Women who have found pregnancy acupuncture beneficial tell their friends and family and it spreads like wildfire. Often a woman will book in with me at 36 weeks on the dot because she knows that this is the optimal point to start because her best friend told her. Pregnancy birth preparation acupuncture starts 4 weeks before the estimated due date (EDD), rather than trying to get things going at 41 weeks, though it’s never too late!
Given birth is a transformational process, (yes, it’s an absolute miracle that baby is squeezed through the vaginal canal and into the wonderful world!!!) and there is always some form of trauma or loss involved, preparing the body with acupuncture treatment, with the knowledge of an experienced practitioner and the natural tools you can help yourself with can reduce your risk of birth intervention and increase your chances of better recovery. Many highly reputable obstetricians and midwifes in Melbourne refer their patients to have pregnancy birth preparation acupuncture because they see the differences between births that do and don’t have it.
Pregnancy birth preparation can reduce birth anxiety and worries, assist in baby getting into the right position, improve circulation for mother and baby, alleviate aches and pains, soften the cervix, encourage baby to engage and much more. Please share this with a lovely mother who is about to bring their baby into the world.
