Benefits of Pregnancy Acupuncture?

Holistic Approach

Stress Reduction

Acupuncture sessions help in releasing endorphins, the body’s natural stress-relievers, fostering a relaxed environment conducive to conception. This is particularly beneficial during the latter stage of pregnancy when overdue.

Happy Clients

I approached Charlotte as some of my NCT friends had seen her for support during their pregnancies.  I was experiencing terrible sickness and vomiting and had no energy to do anything.

After three sessions of acupuncture, my nausea subsided and I could return to work. Charlotte’s Blackheath Clinic is beautiful, so calm and peaceful. Her treatments were amazing and I felt so much better each time. Totally recommend Charlotte for support during pregnancy.

“Charlotte was recommended to me by my midwife and DOULA for help with natural labour induction.  It was a low risk pregnancy but the idea of a medical induction made me anxious and I wished to avoid this at all costs.

I was 8 days over due and after only one session of acupuncture, labour commenced during the night. I birthed my baby daughter naturally at home in a birthing pool.

Thank you Charlotte for your professionalism, gentleness and positivity, my dream of a home both came true”

Emma Clarke


“I came to see Charlotte for the pre-birth acupuncture programme at the suggestion of my independent midwife.

I had heard that it was a supportive and safe therapy in the latter stages to prepare for child birth. I really enjoyed these four acupuncture sessions from week 36.

I felt very relaxed and Charlotte is lovely and highly experienced. With a two year old at home, it was important to have some time to focus on my and my baby. My son was born naturally a few days before my due date. The pregnancy was quick and unlike my first child, I did not require medical intervention. I really recommend the pre birth acupuncture to any pregnant women, I think it really made a difference.”

Does acupuncture reduce risk of miscarriage?

Within fertility research, acupuncture demonstrates beneficial hormonal responses with decreased miscarriage rates, raising the possibility acupuncture may promote specific beneficial effects in early pregnancy. Pregnancy acupuncture is recommended weekly during the first trimester.

Does acupuncture help with morning sickness?

An Australian study of women in early pregnancy found those who received acupuncture treatments for four weeks experienced less nausea and dry retching than women who didn’t receive acupuncture treatments[1].

Is acupuncture safe during pregnancy?

Yes, acupuncture is a safe therapy for all stages of pregnancy. The Acupuncture Space specialise in pregnancy acupuncture, and are trained to know which acupuncture points are helpful during pregnancy and which points should be avoided. There are 6 bilateral points on the hands and shoulders, and around the lower leg, ankle, and low back that are contraindicated during most of pregnancy. 

My baby is breech, what can I do?

Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is recommended for breech presentation. Research studies highlight success rates in excess of 84% after 34 weeks. A moxa stick is used on a daily basis at home to turn the baby into a head down position. 

How effective is acupuncture for labour induction?

According to one study, 70% of the women who received acupuncture went into labor on their own, compared to 50% who received standard care. The women who received acupuncture were also less likely to deliver by cesarean section — 39% compared to 17%.  Both acupuncture and acupressure help soften and dilate the cervix with onset of labour contractions.
