Acupuncture During the Second Trimester
The second trimester is often referred to as the “honeymoon” of pregnancy – while it’s not quite a walk on one of our beautiful beaches (like Wrightsville Beach or Carolina Beach), the early symptoms of the first trimester have usually lessened, and the third trimester is a few weeks away. Still, occasional acupuncture treatments during this time can be beneficial, especially for persistent heartburn, improved sleep quality, balance issues, and low back pain caused by an ever expanding belly.
Acupuncture During the Third Trimester
Emotions may run high while preparing for pregnancy and delivery, causing stress and anxiety. For those women who suffer from depression and stopped taking medication while pregnant, feelings of dread, gloom, and hopelessness might resurface. In both scenarios, prenatal acupuncture can offer relief in a safe and natural way, ensuring a calm and serene environment for both mother and baby.
