Through acupuncture I offer effective treatments to support mother and baby from conception, throughout pregnancy, to birth.
Acupuncture can ease a woman through the many physical and emotional changes that occur during each trimester of her pregnancy and can help to ensure a comfortable and healthy pregnancy.
I combine gentle needing technique with moxibustion, which is a method of applying heat to particular parts of the body. It can be especially useful for certain conditions, including being used to turn a breech baby. The moxibustion gently encourages the baby to turn in the right direction.
I have extensive experience working as an acupuncturist in this field, and prior to this worked as a midwife (no longer practicing).
I am a member of both the Zita West national network of affiliated acupuncturists, (the largest integrated reproductive health clinic in the UK) and on the Herts Acupuncture Childbirth Team (specialising in pregnancy, obstetric and fertility care).
If you’re interested in treatments during your pregnancy, contact me with an email or phone call, so I can learn about where you are, and if it feels right we can schedule an appointment.
