Pregnancy support

For over 5000 years Traditional Chinese Medicine has been a helpful treatment for women in pregnancy care and postpartum recovery.

Acupuncture may be able to help pregnant women with pregnancy related musculoskeletal pains, nausea and vomiting from the first trimester through to birth.

Value is placed on promoting preventative care and addressing symptoms as they arise during pregnancy.

Pre Birth Acupuncture

Acupuncture is recommended weekly from 37 weeks as part of preparation for birth. Acupuncture points are chosen according to a woman's constitution and pregnancy history and incorporate a set of points that may assist in ripening and preparing the cervix* for labour.

Pain Relief

Acupressure is a viable alternative to pain relief and can be self-administered or applied by your support person(s) during labour.  

If you are interested in using Acupressure techniques during labour, a video tutorial and booklet can be downloaded on the DEBRA BETTS WEBSITE.

To learn more, The Healing Point offers one-hour birthing acupressure sessions for expectant mothers and their support person(s).

Melissa will work with you to develop a customised pre-birth treatment plan to reassure, support and guide you through the final weeks.
