Acupuncture & Pregnancy
Dr Tom Kelton Acupuncture
Back Pain, Pregnancy, Fertility
Acupuncture draws from a history of treating women in pregnancy for thousands of years, but has also been adapted to our modern knowledge of safely and evidence based medicine. Studies has shown it to have wonderful benefits for overall wellness, and to counter specific complaints during this time. These include morning sickness, hip and lower back pain, depression, breech position and in shortening labour.
In all the peer- reviewed scientific studies, not one has shown there to be any increased risk for the use of acupuncture in pregnancy or labour. Dr Tom works with your obstetrics team or midwife to help you through a healthy pregnancy.
