Congratulations!

Your dream came true and you are pregnant.

You've either heard or know from your previous experience that your first trimester can be challenging: morning sickness is no joke and can put you in bed for weeks with exhaustion.

It has been 25 years since my first trimester, but I still remember the feeling: as though I am in a stormy sea 24/7!

Sleepiness, constant fatigue, lack of energy, an excessive appetite, especially when you are working or studying, can make life difficult.

Do you know that Acupuncture can relieve ALL these symptoms safely and effectively?

Acupuncture In Pregnancy

Acupuncture during pregnancy can help you reduce back pain and ease swollen feet, insomnia, anxiety, constipation, tiredness, cramps, headaches/migraines, and heartburn.

When you get close to the due date, we can work on breach presentation, blood pressure issues, and severe edema.

In China and other countries acupuncture is used to do C-section anesthesia and relieve labor pain. Here in the USA, we can stimulate your natural labor, expedite the hours in labor and relieve pain. But, our care doesn’t stop there...

Acupuncture after Pregnancy

After delivery a busy mom might need help with:

  • Postpartum depression
  • Reduced milk production
  • Mastitis (inflammation of the breast, while feeding)
  • Full, deep recovery from the pregnancy and labor

For acupuncture in pregnancy or for natural postpartum care and recovery in Newport Beach, Mission Viejo, Santa Ana or in the Orange County area please schedule your first complimentary consult below.
