Acupuncture for morning sickness in pregnancy

"Morning sickness" refers nausea or vomiting in pregnancy - which may occur at any time of the day. It is usually worse during the first trimester, sometimes extending into second trimester. Chinese medicine sees pregnancy as an altered state, and special requirements for the mother and baby need to be accounted for during this time.

Caring for your wellbeing in pregnancy

Pregnancy can be very physically taxing. When you feel tired, this is a sign from your body's intelligence to stop investing energy "out there" and to slow down, close your eyes and allow energy to flow within.
