Using acupuncture to prevent miscarriage
I always advise my pregnant ladies to continue with their acupuncture treatment throughout pregnancy as it will help to ensure they have a healthy and easy pregnancy and should prevent miscarriage.
It is important to state that if there is a defect with the foetus itself then unfortunately acupuncture will not be able to save the baby, as miscarriage can be a natural process. However if you are habitually miscarrying then there is clearly a problem.
Acupuncture is used to help bring the mother's body back to optimum health so that the foetus has the best possible chance to develop and grow, enabling the mother to carry the baby to full term.
In my clinics I have been called out to help several nervous and worried mums and have thankfully been able to stabilise the mother's energy and calm the baby so that a miscarriage is avoided. It is important to call an acupuncturist as soon as you suspect there to be a problem. I offer a call out service for mothers who are experiencing problems but please feel free to call me if you are unsure and I will be able to assess your needs over the phone.
