Pregnancy and Acupuncture

When done properly by a trained professional, acupuncture during pregnancy is considered safe and has few risks. One review reported that acupuncture wasn’t likely to be associated with miscarriage or other major complications. Instead, most risks associated with acupuncture seem to be fairly minor.

Acupuncture seems to have the ability to alleviate some of the undesirable symptoms of pregnancy like morning sickness, fatigue and depression. Some research has shown that in pregnant women who did depression-focused acupuncture, the treatment reduced symptoms by 63 percent.
