Last Two Weeks

You’re in the final stretch now (pardon the pun!). This can be a long two weeks waiting for your due date, you may have finished up work and feel like you’re just waiting for the bomb to drop. Acupuncture at this time, towards the end of your pregnancy is referred to as Pre-birth or pre-labour acupuncture. You may be feeling anxious, stressed, huge and bloated (are those really my feet?) wondering if your cervix is ripening and if baby’s head is engaging. Concerns about how the birth will go can begin to dominate your thoughts. We can help with all this and more:

    • Oedema, bloated, swelling
    • Breech presentation or malposition of your baby
    • Pregnancy-induced hypertension
    • Birth preparation treatments such as Cervical Ripening
    • Facilitating baby’s head engaging
    • Labour Induction treatments
    • Heartburn
      Pelvic pain or instability
    • Headache
    • Restless legs
    • Haemorrhoids

We haven’t listed all possible conditions so if your condition is not listed here, we can still help
