Acupuncture and Early Pregnancy
Is there anything more hopeful, yet more stressful, than a positive pregnancy test? Particularly if conception was difficult or even achieved with the help of IVF, it can be hard to relax once pregnancy is confirmed.
It is common knowledge that the first 12 weeks of pregnancy are critical, and the chances of miscarriage during this first trimester are greatest. Thus, it is essential that you take care of yourself during this time.
If you have a history of infertility or miscarriage, we usually recommend weekly acupuncture treatments through the first trimester to help reduce the risk of miscarriage, manage anxiety and support healthy pregnancy.
