Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to drug therapy for many pregnancy complaints. At Community Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Park Slope, our goal is to enhance the wellness of mother and child from conception to birth and beyond, using careful consideration, and the highest of safety standards. I want to show you how acupuncture can ease painful symptoms, reduce stress and ensure the proper growth and nurturing of the fetus from day one.
Acupuncture in the first trimester is highly effective at combatting the nausea of morning sickness and reducing stress levels of the mother, but it is also beneficial to the developing fetus. The placenta connects the fetus and the uterine wall, allowing the mother to move nutrients to the fetus and for the fetus to dispose of waste and carbon dioxide through the mother’s blood supply. By improving blood flow to the placenta, acupuncture facilitates an enhanced flow of nutrients from the mother to her developing fetus.
Acupuncture is a wonderful and safe option for supporting the optimal health of the mother and fetus during its early stages of development. I am a specialist in acupuncture for pregnancy and have been a member of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine since 1997. You can be confident that your body and your pregnancy will be treated with the utmost skill and care. If you are looking to optimize the health of your pregnancy through the power of acupuncture, I urge you to call our office in Brooklyn at (718) 398-3100.
