Help and Support During Pregnancy
A Patient's Perspective - My story by Elizabeth
I made my first contact with you after having suffered
from very bad nausea in the early pregnancy. With you professional
help and knowledge of Acupuncture, I had stopped feeling
nauseous and my energy levels had so much improved which
had made the remaining months of my pregnancy enjoyable
and I was feeling fit and healthy.
In the last few weeks of pregnancy I contacted you again
in order for you to start preparing me for natural labour.
I had 5 visits altogether during those last few weeks of
my pregnancy. A day after the last visit I went into labour,
I was 3 days overdue. It all started so well but in the
end I had to have an instrumental delivery, ventouse my
baby was facing up rather than down and I was not able to
push down, as they wanted me too!!
I believe that the acupuncture treatment helped so much
to start the natural labour as with my first child I had
to be induced with pessaries and intravenous drip the labour
and delivery was very traumatic
With my second child I also had the instrumental delivery
but it was so much less stressful due to me being more relaxed
after the acupuncture treatments. I also believe that since
the birth, my baby has been calm, content and has been feeding
very well, is all due to me having had the acupuncture relaxation
I would recommend you and your acupuncture treatments
to any pregnant woman in order to prepare you and your body
as well as your unborn baby for natural labour and for relaxation.
If I ever decide to have another baby, I will definitely
again make contact with you.
Once again, Thank You ever so much for all your help and
support throughout my pregnancy and for putting up with
me and my questions and concerns, which you had always answered
with enthusiasm and optimism.
