Acupuncture and Pregnancy Support

Pregnancy Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to naturally help women before, during and after childbirth.

At TwelveM Acupuncture, here in Ottawa, we can provide support for the health of mothers and growing babies. Regular acupuncture throughout your pregnancy may help promote a natural and smooth labour and delivery.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes dramatic emotional and physical changes to support the growth of the baby, so inevitably every woman will respond in a particular way. With acupuncture, we may assist with:

  • Anxiety and worries

  • Morning sickness

  • Fatigue

  • Back pain

  • Sciatica

  • Insomnia

  • Nausea, heartburn and digestive issues

  • Constipation

  • Breech baby position

  • Labour induction

  • Difficult breastfeeding

  • Postpartum depression

  • Postpartum uterine bleeding

Pregnancy Acupuncture

Acupuncture may also support recovery, as well as restore energy after childbirth, improve breastfeeding and increase low milk supply.

Our treatment is drug-free

Acupuncture is a natural and safe treatment, which can be the best choice during pregnancy, as the use of medication is limited. We simply use needles to help stimulate the body’s own natural ability to adapt, heal and recover.

Your doctor and midwife must be aware of your treatment with us, as they are your primary carers during pregnancy, so listen to their advice.


To know more about acupuncture during pregnancy please send me a message or book your appointment!
