Securing Early Pregnancy

Acupuncture provides a safe, drug-free treatment that can help to secure early pregnancy in general, or particularly for women to have had the misfortune of previous early miscarriage(s). This is also a valuable treatment for women who have had difficulty conceiving in the first place, either naturally or through IUI, IVF, ICSI and would like further support to secure the precious early phase of their pregnancy. Some women who feel anxious because it is their first pregnancy or for other reasons also appreciate physical and emotional support through regular acupuncture sessions.

This form of treatment helps to secure a viable pregnancy by enhancing the physical aspects of the woman and her growing baby as well as the woman’s mental-emotional state , as both play important parts in producing a healthy full-term pregnancy.

Acupuncture may help to secure an early viable pregnancy for:

  • First time mothers to be
  • Previous normal pregnancy
  • Previous miscarriage
  • Multiple miscarriages
  • Difficulty conceiving naturally
  • First time mothers to be
