Acupuncture in pregnancy

Acupuncture is not a substitute for Western prenatal medical care but is possibly the safest alternative treatment to ease the most common problems during pregnancy.

Acupuncture offers complementary care that has many benefits and very few side effects unlike many drugs.

Acupuncture may also help with fertility. Studies show that acupuncture can increase the chances that assisted reproductive technologies (ART) will result in a live birth by 10 to 15 percent or more, for example.

Acupuncture also has been proved to help during Labor and to ease post partum disorders.
