For any women that are pregnant or trying to get pregnant out there, here’s a great little tidbit for you on acupuncture benefits for pregnancy!
Acupuncture Benefits for Pregnancy
Acupuncture techniques that are intended to treat depression appear to mend symptoms in women that are pregnant, according to a study. This suggests that it may actually be better as an alternative to antidepressant prescriptions for the duration of a woman’s pregnancy.
Depression during pregnancy is a huge risk element for postpartum depression. Postpartum depression is linked in certain scientific studies with lesser cognitive and emotional growth in children. Some doctors have also linked depression in pregnancy to a low birth weight for the child.
Some people have even linked Acupuncture to helping them get pregnant when they were previously having difficulty. Whitney Harris wrote an article for Fitpregnancy.com detailing the different methods she went through to try to conceive before turning to acupuncture, and ultimately getting pregnant.
Acupuncture works in many different ways and improves many different lives as you’ll see throughout this blog!
