Acupuncture has been utilized over 3000 years to help pregnant women thrive in mind, body and spirit. This leads to babies that are healthier in mind, body and spirit as well.
I treat nausea, heartburn and pain through the pregnancy most commonly. Acupuncture works well for these complaints- quickly and thoroughly- helping new moms enjoy the pregnancy experience and connect more positvely to the fetus (and daddy).
I also encounter women that are struggling emotionally, either with the hormonal changes or external factors because life happens. Its crucial to manage our emotions in pregnancy because severe or prolonged negative emotional states can and will affect the fetus. I see evidence of this in my work.
Many adults continue to hold onto trapped emotions absorbed from mom in the womb! Taking on mom’s stuff can almost “preprogram” us before we are even born. This is natural and common and, as we have all seen, we can overcome mom’s stuff though our own growth and maturity. BUT, wouldn’t it be nice to clean the slate before we begin! The potential for growth is then unhindered as your young child starts their journey! I LOVE cleaning the slate emotionally in fetuses before they are even born and help mom and baby connect more fully and intimately through the pregnancy experience.
