SPECIALIST IN PREGNANCY COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES
WESTERN MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE – SUITABLE FOR ANYBODY.
Pregnancy and giving birth to your baby is a time of great change for body and mind, and one of the most significant experiences in a woman’s life.
The physical and emotional changes during and after pregnancy are the most significant in a woman’s body since puberty; and for some women with accompanying health problems – for instance nausea and sickness, fatigue, heartburn, constipation, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, pelvic girdle pain, leg and ankle pain, and emotional changes resulting in anxiety and even fear about labour, birth and parenthood.
These pregnancy ailments are often regarded as common and normal during pregnancy, yet it is can be very distressing for women and cause huge upheaval in their daily lives. Mainstream treatments/medicine are often contraindicated or limited during pregnancy, with a subsequent lack of support for women who suffer with symptoms, and/or women choose to not use conventional medicine during pregnancy. Preparation for labour and birth, coupled with hormonal changes, and adjusting to motherhood can cause anxiety and emotional difficulties.
