Acupuncture During Pregnancy | Fertile Body

Have the pregnancy that you and your baby deserve

With the excitement of realising that a little one is on their way, it’s time to give your body the support it needs to nurture the new life inside you.

At Fertile Body we have over a decade of experience treating pregnant women and are passionate about helping you have the best pregnancy that you can.

Safe and painless, regular acupuncture helps support your body and can help alleviate many of the common but uncomfortable symptoms that can tend to accompany pregnancy.

Research has shown that acupuncture can help to reduce morning sickness  as well as helping to treat back pain which is so common in pregnancy. Additionally, acupuncture helps to trigger the release of the body’s natural endorphins and can help you to feel calm, relaxed and at ease throughout your pregnancy.

Acupuncture and natural supplements can be used to assist with  any digestive issues that arise during pregnancy as well as supporting your energy and well being throughout the different stages of pregnancy.

As part of our pregnancy treatment protocol we recommend weekly treatments in the first trimester, reducing to monthly until 35wks when we start weekly treatments again to help support labour and birth preparation.

Breech babies are another area that acupuncture may assist. This is most effective if the treatment is undertaken between 34 and 37 weeks.

We also recommend working with a doula as a great way to support yourself during pregnancy and childbirth. Jacki Barker is a highly experienced doula who we work closely with and is such a wealth of wisdom and knowledge about all things pregnancy and childbirth related. Her website is
