how acupuncture can help in the third trimester

When you become pregnant, acupuncture provides safe, gentle support for you and your baby’s health. Acupuncture during pregnancy has been used safely for thousands of years. Acupuncture can be used safely throughout every phase of your pregnancy to improve your health, relieve issues, and prevent complications. Regular acupuncture treatments during your pregnancy can reduce miscarriage risk, reduce nausea, heartburn and constipation, improve sleep, energy and moods, relieve body pain and headaches, and strengthen and prepare your body for labor. Complimenting your prenatal care with acupuncture can provide an option for concerns that arise during pregnancy. Adrianne Ortega has advanced training and considerable expertise in treating pregnant and postpartum people.
