Prebirth acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that can promote and enhance a natural and efficient labour. Treatment can start from 36 weeks with the aim of preparing the cervix and pelvis for labour while also promoting your sense of well-being and relaxation prior to your due date. From 41 weeks acupuncture can be used as a natural form of induction.
Acupuncture is also an ideal form of treatment during pregnancy as it offers drug free relief for a multitude of pregnancy related conditions: e.g. morning sickness, anxiety and fatigue, pelvic girdle pain, pregnancy related hypertension and constipation. Breech babies can be encouraged to turn using moxibustion.
Please contact Helen to book an appointment or ask any questions. Mention Embrace Bump to Baby when you speak to her for block session discounts.

My name is Donna Thomson and run Beauty Revived, bringing beauty and massage treatments to you in the comfort of your home. As a mobile therapist, I have many different types of clients from the very busy to the very old and lots of people in between. Pregnant ladies in particular benefit from a whole range of treatments from holistic massage to beautifying those tooties, which are hard to reach. Leading up to the birth many ladies like to have a leg and bikini wax, and an eyelash tint so that they haven’t got to worry about the daily beauty maintenance before and after the birth. But whatever you needs Beauty Revive will leave you feeling revived, refreshed and rejuvenated!
