At Nuwa we are focused on supporting you through your pregnancy. We aim to provide you with the best treatment plan throughout your pregnancy from the beginning to the arrival of your baby.
Pregnancy is an exciting and wonderful journey that can come with certain unwanted symptoms. We are especially trained to support you though all aspects of your pregnancy.
We recommend weekly treatment for the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy to help prevent miscarriage, manage morning sickness symptoms, increase energy, alleviate constipation and bloating, reduce stress/ anxiety and improve sleep.
During this phase of your pregnancy Acupuncture can be every 4 weeks if you have no complications or complaints. The benefits of having acupuncture during the second trimester include: maintaining energy, sleep, hormonal symptoms, headaches, back pain, hip pain, stress, sciatica, bloating/ constipation, hypertension and general wellbeing.
As soon as you are 35 weeks Acupuncture can start preparing you for birth. Weekly treatments up until labour may help encourage the baby to move into the optimal position, increase energy, relax the hips and lower back, ripen the cervix, reduce anxiety, reduce swelling (oedema) and manage blood pressure.
The purpose of your treatments will be to help prepare you for birth and to encourage you to have an efficient labour with minimal medical intervention.
*If your baby is in breech then it is recommended to start coming for treatment from 32 weeks.
Acupuncture and massage can be given to assist the healing process after birth, prevent/ improve post natal depression and encourage production of breast milk. Acupuncture can also be beneficial for mastitis.
