Yes, it is good to continue acupuncture while pregnant if you are under the age of 40.

Yes, it is OK to continue treatment while pregnant. There are points that must be avoided during pregnancy and your practitioner should know which ones shouldn't be used.

Absolutely! As a matter of fact- I quite frequently receive referrals from high risk OBGYN's around the city. I treat a wide array of issues ranging from insomnia, nausea, sciatica and breech position to inducing labor.

yes, but avoid some of the strong or sensitive points.

Yes of course. Most of my fertility patients receive treatments up to and even during labor. It is safe when performed by a trained physician and is beneficial for many things including fatigue, nausea, back pain, depression that often accompany pregnancy. Just make sure the physician is professionally trained.
Vanessa McKay (Orangeburg, NY) on Dec 30, 2011
YES! Especially if you were using acupuncture to become pregnant, it is advised to continue with treatment. It doesn't have to be as often, but it will definitely help with pregnancy related symptoms.
Rebecca Vasquez (San Diego, CA) on Dec 2, 2011
YES!!!! And congratulations!!! I am pregnant myself and am an acupuncturist. Acupuncture can help throughout the pregnancy. (It can also help with fertility, my specialty). It will help in the first trimester with morning sickness/nausea and with fatigue, later to reduce back pain, or way later to induce!!! How exciting! If you would like more info, or would like a referral for someone in your area, feel free to email me. Best, Rebecca Vasquez, L.Ac. (in San Diego) firstname.lastname@example.org www.acumaster.com
