Women’s Wellness: Pregnancy & Post-Partum Treatment and Care

acupuncture for pregnancyDuring pregnancy, you can often experience a myriad of issues such as heartburn, back pain/ sciatica, migraine headaches, nausea/ morning sickness, and fatigue.

Since traditional over the counter medications are contraindicated for pregnancy, most people tend to suffer through these symptoms.

However, acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat all these and other side effects/symptoms.  You are always welcome to set up a free consultation with Joe if you are suffering from any of the above issues or any other health concerns that may arise during your pregnancy.


Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), IUI, and IVF Support

A combination of acupuncture and/or herbal supplements can effectively complement your ART treatment and may significantly boost your chances for success. Research shows that acupuncture can increase the efficacy of IVF procedures up to 45%!

At Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center, we can help support you in the following ways:

  • We start by looking at your overall health and nutrition, which is most beneficial to begin about 2-3 months prior to your ART procedures (which may include IUI or IVF). Starting Nutrition Response Testing as well as MFT so early improves your overall health and assists in the regulation of your nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems. This allows your body to be at its most optimal health for conception. Acupuncture treatments also provide an easier ART procedure if completed before your embryo retrieval.
  • During your fertility protocol, Acupuncture can increase the qi/blood flow to your uterus, thickening the endometrial lining and preparing it for embryo implantation.
  • We provide Acupuncture both before and after your embryo transfer. Even if this is the only step you take, it will increase your chances of achieving pregnancy by reducing stress, relaxing the uterus, and reducing cramping.

To better facilitate fertility and overall body health, we recommend that our patients receive a minimum of 6-9 weeks of consistent acupuncture treatment while following comprehensive lifestyle recommendations. During this time, the focus is on regulating any imbalances that may occur elsewhere in the body in order to maximize your potential for a healthy pregnancy and birth.
