Women’s health and pregnancy
Women’s bodies experience a number of hormonal patterns in day to day life and across their entire lives. A combination of lifestyle and genetic makeup influence how these continuously changing factors influence how women feel and how their health is affected.
Maintaining the balance is a complex and delicate process, which when not managed effectively leads to a number of health issues including: infertility, insomnia, menstrual pain/irregularity, fatigue, weight gain, low libido, irritability or anxiety.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine
Acupuncture offers safe, effective, drug-free treatment during pregnancy. Treatment is typically received once per month, or more frequently to counter any challenges that may arise, such as morning sickness, pain, insomnia, heartburn or a baby in breech or posterior position. In the last month of pregnancy, treatment is recommended weekly to reduce the likelihood of induction, labour time and the number of interventions required during labour. If inducing labour medically is required, acupuncture offers a highly effective alternative.
Many women seek acupuncture during pregnancy because they want effective relief without the worry of medicinals adversely affecting their baby. Sometimes, the use of herbal medicines are recommended. Rest assured that our practitioners are aware of which herbs and formulas are not advised during pregnancy, and your prescription will have been used safely in pregnancy for centuries.
Wholistic Natural Medicine also provides preconception care, post-natal care and treatments to enhance fertility and support IVF.
