2)   Addressing Symptoms of Pregnancy

Morning sickness/nausea, fatigue, sore breasts, spotting, gas, bloating, insomnia, indigestion, heartburn, swollen ankles/feet, leg cramps, backache, headache, forgetfulness, ligament pain, allergies and appetite are just a few of the symptoms safely addressed with acupuncture.

3)   Balancing Emotions

Mood swings, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, frustration and overwhelm are emotional states that acupuncture can balance in pregnancy.  Often hormonal transitions, fatigue and the fact that you are carrying around another person 24-7 lends to emotional upheaval that with a session of acupuncture provides you a "re-set" to enable you to be happier and more tolerant of stressors.
