Healthy and fit while pregnant: that is what every pregnant woman dreams of. Being able to live your life: working, leading an active daily life, enjoy and participate with friends and your partner.

Happy ánd nauseous, tired, stressed or overdue

Many women feel less energetic when pregnant or suffer from pregnancy complaints that make them feel less fit and healthy. That’s not necessary, you really can feel better than that.

During the last weeks before delivery you might end up in unexpected situations: your baby is breech, your delivery is not starting, you suddenly may need a medical induction. And you have no idea what to do. This doesn’t have to be the case with you; it can be diverted, prevented or adjusted with some extra care. That’s what Chinese Medicin is all about.

Would you like a healthy and fit pregnancy?

Good for you to be introduced to acupuncture & advice at my practice! Because:

  • acupuncture is safe and comfortable, also during pregnancy
  • helps with most pregnancy complaints, so also
  • when you’re simply “not feeling well”, feeling emotional or gloomy.
  • It means help and support without the kind of medication you’d rather not take now,
  • even if you have a medical condition – and would rather reduce your medication now.
  • We will also monitor your moments of stress, and
  • strive for a relaxed and positive pregnancy.

Pregnant or Post partum: what are your needs?

You're pregnant, but not feeling fit and healthy.
You suffer from small discomforts, or
there is something that burdens you more than you can handle.

The treatment programme A new, healthy balance helps you adapting to the new situation  in the 1th trimester.

A pregnancy requires a new balance. This may involve tiredness and physical or mental discomforts. The aim of this programmes is to ease the symptoms, and support you to find your new balance.

We do this by adressing helpfull energy points: a safe treatment method for you and your baby. Usually a painless, pleasant and relaxing experience.

Each phase of the pregnancy has its own discomforts. Varying from morning sickness and tiredness to headache, sleep problems and pelvic pain. You realize it's better to pay attention to these signs and not let it get worse. You can find here which pregnancy symptoms acupuncture can relieve.

Even after giving birth, acupuncture can help you with easing symptoms or recovering from a c-section. Read more about post partum help, about symptoms whereby acupuncture can give you relieve here.

Usually, three to six treatments in a short period of time are sufficient to prperly help you feeling healthy again. You come preferably once or twice a week. The more intensive the treatment, the faster you get rid of it.

Your midwife or gynecologist sees reason to induce your childbirth in the hospital. If it can be done in a softer way, stimulating the delivery, then that is your preference. That is possible with acupuncture: moving towards delivery in a gradual way. Good for you and your baby.

  • prefer a soft and gradual way to stimulate delivery
  • rather prefer not to undergo medical induction
    as long as it can be done differently
  • have missed the programme Naturally Prepared for Delivery.

Don't hesitate to get in touch when you know induction is or might be upcoming.

A delivery is an incredible experience and it’s exhausting: no matter wether is a vaginal birth of through a C-section. To achieve a complete closure of the delivery, additional care, nourishment and relaxation in both your body and mind is necessary.
