Valley Acupuncture

Acupuncture for mums to be

As part of my scope of practice, I have completed post graduate training enabling me to safely administer acupuncture from early pregnancy up until labour. Please bring your midwife clinic notes with you at each session. If you are experiencing certain symptoms and looking for a drug free option, acupuncture offers a safe and natural approach in helping to alleviate some of these symptoms. Examples of some of the conditions seen in my clinic include back pain, headaches, lethargy and nausea. Pre-birth acupuncture can help you feel relaxed and prepared for childbirth and depending on your history, I can also demonstrate how to apply acupressure for labour.

Moxibustion for breech babies

If your baby is in the breech position it may be possible to try moxibustion. This involves applying gentle heat with a moxa stick near the edge of both the little toes for 20 minutes a day for 10 days. Your first treatment will be given with your initial consultation and a further 9 sessions will be carried out by yourself or your partner at home. All you need to know regarding safety and what to expect will be explained at consultation.

Pregnancy related nausea

Acupuncture helped to calm down the severe nausea I was experiencing and therefore enabled me to start eating again to regain strength.
Breech baby

When I found out my baby was breech, I tried moxa treatment which proved to be successful and my baby turned.
Overdue baby

Acupuncture relaxed me when my baby was overdue and within 24 hours of treatment I gave birth to a baby girl. A big thanks to Louise for being part of my birthing journey.
Relaxation prior to medical induction of labour

Having an acupuncture treatment the day before my medical induction was due really helped me to stay calm and focused.
