Jordemoderhuset offers acupuncture to relieve different pregnancy discomforts and for cervical ripening before labour.
Acupuncture to relieve pregnancy discomfort is a tried and tested method with no side effects which is used at a number of antenatal clinics and labour wards around the country as part of the public health service. At jordemoderhuset our acupuncture treatment can be combined with massage if needed
Acupuncture is used for a number of pregnancy related discomforts:
- Lower back pain
- Pelvic pain
- Fluid retention
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Swollen and restless legs
- Varicose veins and haemorrhoids
The first treatment lasts one hour. The midwife examines you and writes a report. Subsequent treatments, if needed, last 45 minutes. For discomfort such as nausea, lower back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome it is often recommended to have several treatments. Not as a cure but rather a way to relieve the symptoms.
