During this heat, babies tend to cry more. That can have a number of reasons…
Enjoy gentle massage, relax – it is also good for your baby.
Relief from nausea, tiredness, fluid retention, back pain or anxiety.
Help prevent a miscarriage: get treatment in the first trimester in particular.
When pregnant, you are more sensitive, so I rarely apply acupuncture, but offer gentle treatment based on the principles of acupuncture. The treatment stimulates the body to heal itself, not adding, removing or suppressing anything.
Do you use medication? Is your medication contra-indicated during pregnancy? Fortunately a lot of disorders can be treated effectively without medication, using the principles of acupuncture, but without needles.
When a baby is in breech or transverse position, a subtle treatment helps the baby turn spontaneously to the right position. This is one of the amazing manifestations of nature, I don’t even have to touch the tummy. This simple treatment prevents many caesarean sections. It is usually done around the 33rd, 34th week of pregnancy. Please consult your obstetrician or gynaecologist first.
Prepare for a smooth labour, be more relaxed and ease the way.
If your baby is overdue and your obstetrician / gynaecologist is considering inducing labour, first try the natural way with moxibustion (an acupuncture method using herbs), to gently help the contractions start. The medical routine can make labour come on too fast, making it difficult for the body to adjust.
Has you baby arrived? Congratulations! May I help you recover your zest?
