At Vitalize, we love working with pregnant mamas. The conditions that arise during pregnancy are unique and the treatment options can sometimes feel limited. There is always the extra step of asking how this will impact the growing babe. It is best to assume that anything you ingest will pass to the baby, and this includes herbs and supplements. This certainly does not mean that you have to stop all your herbs and supplements when you get the BFP (big fat positive!). And it also doesn’t mean we can’t treat your nausea, fatigue, sinus congestion, swelling, heartburn, insomnia, etc. with herbs. Our practitioners are informed about herbal safety and can guide you.
You may already know that we at Vitalize treat a lot of fertility and women’s health. This includes pregnant women with their myriad complaints. Let’s face it, as much as we may look like glowing goddesses, a pregnant body can be very uncomfortable. So here are some of the things acupuncture can treat in pregnancy, a time when other treatment options are limited.
