Through acupuncture I offer effective treatments to support mother and baby from conception, throughout pregnancy, to birth.

With considerable experience in the field I am a member of both the Zita West national network of affiliated acupuncturists, (the largest integrated reproductive health clinic in the UK) and on the Herts Acupuncture Childbirth Team (specialising in pregnancy, obstetric and fertility care).

Acupuncture can ease a woman through the many physical and emotional changes that occur during each trimester of her pregnancy and can help to ensure a comfortable and healthy pregnancy.

Through the effective use of gentle needle technique and moxibustion*, I help nurture and support mums to be.

*Moxibustion refers to a method of applying heat to particular parts of the body. It can be especially useful for certain conditions, including being used to turn a breech baby.

Common conditions treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine include:

1st Trimester 2nd Trimester 3rd Trimester
Morning sickness Heartburn High blood pressure
Colds/flu Carpal tunnel Pelvic pain
Threatened miscarriage Leg cramps Incontinence
Anxiety Sciatica Back pain
Digestive irregularities Hemorrhoids Breech baby
Sinus congestion Muscle aches & pains Edema
Anaemia Preterm labor Insomnia
Fatigue/low energy Labor preparation
Recurrent miscarriage Labor induction
