Effective Pregnancy & Prenatal Care Methods

Prenatal Acupuncture

The hormonal changes that come with pregnancy can have an impact on a woman’s psyche. “Pregnancy just by its nature can bring out some underlying psychiatric and emotional issues,” said co-author Deirdre Lyell, MD, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford University. This is where acupuncture sets in. Acupuncture increases your blood flow, which leads to an improved distribution of oxygen and nutrients.

Simultaneously, it lowers the level of inflammation in your body and supports your immune system. Research proves a bigger reduction in depression symptoms for women using acupuncture treatment. 50 percent had a reduction in the symptoms! During pregnancy acupuncture has the following benefits:
