Some new mothers-to-be will suffer a lot of different situations during pregnancy. One of the most common ones is morning sickness. Ancient Chinese doctors found many good methods to treat this to help new mothers get rid of the morning sickness or feel much, much better. It was either by using acupuncture, herbs, or even diet changes. If you feel that you have too much morning sickness, it is definitely a great idea to see an acupuncturist or herbologist.
Another common complaint during pregnancy are pains such as headaches, lower back pain, and stomachaches. All of these problems are pretty simple to deal with acupuncture. In our clinic, most people only need 1 or 2 sessions of acupuncture with 1, 2, or 5 needles in total. Only a few people need to come back for follow-up sessions. One of the amazing points of acupuncture for changing the position of the baby, only 1 point will take care of it, which is the last one of the urinary-bladder channel called Zhiyin. We have changed many babies’ positions with this.
A third common situation during pregnancy is a miscarriage. We developed a perfect way to prevent it including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet therapy, and lifestyle changes. We can proudly say we have saved a lot of babies’ lives this way.
Of course, there are many more problems during pregnancy such as constipation, difficulty in urination, and etc. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are the best choices. However, if you have high blood pressure during pregnancy, we would encourage you to go to an OB/GYN first. Every year, we get many referrals from different OB/GYN or IVF clinics for various problems during pregnancy and we help almost all of them.
