Pregnancy Acupuncture - London

Pregnancy Acupuncture, London

Our pregnancy acupuncture clinics in London offers specialist services in pregnancy acupuncture.

Our obstetrics acupuncturist, Charlotte Steed worked for renowned midwife, Zita West and is proud to receive referals from independant midwives, hospital maternity units and the Barkantine Birth Centre.

Our pregnancy acupuncture clinics offer maternity reflexology and pregnancy acupuncture during all stages of pregnancy.

We offer pregnancy acupuncture for morning sickness, breech babies, pelvic and back pain, and our pre-birth acupuncture programme is extremely popular.

We offer pregnancy acupuncture for labour induction, and post-natally for hormonal re-balancing, c-section healing, lacation problems and baby blues/post natal depression.

Our Pregnancy Acupuncture Programme

Preparing for a Pregnancy
Preparation for pregnancy can begin several months prior to conception. If both partners adopt a preconceptual healthcare programme including fertility acupuncture, reflexology and nutrition for at least 3-4 months prior to conception, it is possible to have an impact on the health of both the egg and sperm and reproductive outcomes.

The First Trimester: (0-12 weeks)
We recommend weekly pregnancy acupuncture during the first trimester. During this stage, there is an increased risk of miscarriage and an even higher risk with IVF pregnancies or where there has been recurrent miscarriage. Maternity reflexology is not available until week 13.

The Second Trimester: (13-28 weeks)
We recommend bi-weekly or monthly pregnancy acupuncture or maternity reflexology during this stage depending on the symptoms associated with your pregnancy.

The Third Trimester: (29-36 weeks)
We recommend bi-weekly or monthly pregnancy acupuncture or maternity reflexology during this stage depending on the symptoms associated with your pregnancy.

 

The Third Trimester: Pre-Birth Acupuncture (week 36-40)
We recommend Pre-Birth Acupuncture in the final four weeks of pregnancy from week 36 to week 40 to prepare for childbirth. We receive referals for this programme from medics, and midwives.

Post-Natal Care
Acupuncture and reflexology play a key role in the post-natal period to aid recovery. We recommend a couple of acupuncture or reflexology treatments post birth, the first being 3-5 days after childbirth. This treatment is extremely gentle and supportive and helps to restore a hormonal balance.

We offer a 'Mother Warming' treatment which involves the use of a moxa stick to warm the lower abdomen. It is soothing and therapeutic and wonderful post c-section as it aids recovery.
