How Acupuncture Can Help During Pregnancy

Acupuncture can assist throughout various stages of your pregnancy, or with conditions associated with your pregnancy. This includes:

Preparation for labour

In preparation for labour, our aim is to soften the cervix, relax the muscles to open up the pelvic area with acupuncture treatments. It is recommended that you commence treatments at 36-37 weeks of conception to prepare the pelvis and cervix for labour.


It is important for women who have previously miscarried to be very careful in the first trimester to protect their new baby. Acupuncture treatments can be given prior to your next pregnancy to strengthen your body, while herbs and acupuncture can also be offered during the new pregnancy.

Morning Sickness

Acupuncture treatments can be used to alleviate symptoms of morning sickness, with treatment frequency depending on the severity of the sickness.

Induction Treatments

If you are overdue, our various treatments support your body to assist the promotion of labour.

Vaginal Birth After Caesarean (VBAC)

Acupuncture in the last three weeks of your pregnancy can help facilitate your wish to achieve a VBAC.


Pre-eclampsia is a very serious condition that must be carefully monitored by your obstetrician. At our acupuncture clinic, we have assisted women with the symptoms associated with  pre-eclampsia to stabilise the pregnancy.

Breech Baby Treatments

If your baby is in a breech presentation we can assist from as early as 32 weeks. The earlier we can assist you the better the outcome.

Post-partum Acupuncture Treatments for You & Baby

Acupuncture treatments can be continued after giving birth, helping new mothers recover their energy to pre-pregnancy levels and alleviating symptoms associated with mastitis, which is an uncomfortable inflammation of the breasts.  If you suffer from insufficient lactation, our treatments relax the shoulders to assist with milk let down. 

We also have a strong interest in a range of other women’s health concerns, including infertility, IVF support, menopause and endometriosis. At Eastern Therapies, we take a holistic approach to your wellbeing, focusing on hormones, pressure points, herbal medicine and more.

It is recommended that treatments continue after birth because postpartum health is very important for you and your baby. Acupuncture can help new mothers recover their energy to pre-pregnancy levels while helping to treat conditions such as:



This condition is very painful and will cause a lot of discomforts. Even though you may be on antibiotics for this problem, we can speed up the process of recovery with just a couple of acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture can relieve the pain and inflammation and deflate your engorged breast from the very first treatment.


Insufficient lactation

I have assisted women to double their milk supply from acupuncture and herbs. Usually, we free all the tension in your shoulders to assist with the milk let down as well as work internally on your organs to assist milk production.
