At What’s Good, we understand that pregnancy can bring a host of physical and emotional challenges. We’re here to provide safe and effective care to help you feel your best throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine are natural and gentle treatments that can effectively alleviate common pregnancy symptoms like nausea, fatigue, insomnia, constipation, low energy, and pain. We’ve seen firsthand how these treatments can make a significant difference in our patients’ lives.
Our practitioners have decades of experience helping pregnant people navigate the ups and downs of pregnancy. We’re passionate about providing evidence-based care and staying up-to-date with the latest research and best practices.
Studies have shown that acupuncture and herbal medicine can not only relieve physical symptoms but also support emotional wellbeing. These treatments can reduce stress levels, prevent baby blues and postpartum depression, and support labor and delivery, reducing the likelihood of interventions during the birthing process.
Here are some published studies that support the benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicine for pregnancy care:
Nausea & vomiting
A randomized controlled trial published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that acupuncture reduced nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy. (Smith et al., 2002)
A randomized controlled trial published in Obstetrics and Gynecology found that acupuncture improved sleep quality in late pregnancy. (Manber et al., 2010)
A randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research found that herbal medicine improved constipation in pregnant women. (Feng et al., 2018)
A meta-analysis published in the Journal of Pain Research found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain during labor. (Chen et al., 2017)
Baby blues & postpartum depression
A randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that acupuncture reduced the risk of postpartum depression. (Manber et al., 2019)
Labor & delivery
A meta-analysis published in the Journal of Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine found that acupuncture reduced the need for medical interventions during labor and delivery, including induction of labor and C-section. (Guittier et al., 2018)
