At Taupo Acupuncture Centre we specialise in treating all conditions before during and after pregnancy.
Miscarriage is very draining on the health of the mother both physically and emotionally and it is important after a miscarriage that the mothers strength is built up before trying to conceive again. It is recommended that a duration of 3 months is spent nourishing and strengthening the body so as to enable a full recovery, this will ensure that the mothers body is able to cope with a full term.
How Acupuncture Can Help Prevent Miscarriage
The best way to prevent miscarriage is to get preconseption treatment, both parents need to be at peak health when they merge their cells to produce a baby. Acupuncture can specifically increase blood flow to the reproductive organs so that eggs and sperm have an addequate supply of blood while they are maturing. Better quality eggs, endometrial lining and sperm lead to better quality embryos and healthy implantation therefore reducing the risk of a miscarriage.
If hormone levels such as low progesterone are a factor for women, acupuncture can help strengthen the quality of the follicles so that they are better producers of progesterone after ovulation. Likewise, concerns with very light periods and thin endometrial lining can be treated by increasing blood flow to the uterus and working to balance hormones.
The hallmark symtoms of a miscarriage are vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain or cramps and lower back pain, if any of these symptoms are present you must be treated immediately, don't just "wait and see".
Acupuncture can be successful in the reducing the chance of miscarriage, it is important that if you are displaying any of the above symptoms that you have bed rest and keep warm.
