Even the most beautiful pregnancy takes sometimes a few problems with it. Drugs take the most expectant mothers understandably prefer only in exceptional cases. Therefore the acupuncture in the spotlight has shifted in recent years.
Pregnant women, midwives and doctors also have discovered the advantages of this old Chinese treatment method.
Boost for the self-healing powers
Acupuncture uses body’s pathways and regulation mechanisms to resolve errors. They supported so the organism, to help themselves. Placing thin needles to determine acupuncture points, stimulates the body to compensate for the disturbed balance of some functions. The acupuncture points are exactly specified points along the so-called energy pathways (meridians). Each individual areas of the surface of the body and certain organs are connected through these meridians, so the traditional Chinese medicine.
Like any effective treatment, even acupuncture is not completely free of side effects. For example the complaints can spread, as in homeopathy, initially, before it goes up. However, side effects occur very rarely. Therefore, acupuncture in pregnancy and childbirth is considered very suitable form of treatment. Placing the needles is typically not perceived as unpleasant. Where the personal sensitivity plays a role here as well, as the experience of the / of the attending. An acupuncture session takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
Relief from pregnancy complications
Acupuncture treatments have proven such as nausea in early pregnancy. Acupuncture to treat of the annoying sciatica pain that plague many pregnant women in the later months is useful. Other typical fields of application are sleep disorders and heartburn. However, an acupuncture treatment requires a little patience. With a single session, it is usually not done. In terms of cost, ask for advance, whether is a deductible for you. Since there are major differences, depending, who treats you (E.g., doctor or midwife) and for which cash you are insured.
Rotary incentive for the baby
Some babies just don’t turn into birth position wearing maternity swimwear at homeagerly. The “Indian bridge”, an exercise that should give space to rotate the baby can then be helpful. Now insert the midwives and doctors also moxibustion (here stimulates the warmth of glowing sagebrush leaves acupuncture points near the little toe) and acupuncture. Research suggests that this leads to an increased blood circulation of the umbilical cord and thus stimulating effect on the baby. It moves more and make it may under its own power, to change its location. Incidentally, the acupuncture points, which should stimulate such a turn may be stimulated only from the 36th week. Previously, their stimulation could trigger premature labour. An example that shows: The acupuncture treatment in pregnancy is in the hands of experienced doctors, midwives, or similarly qualified therapists.
Time saving in the opening phase
For your baby in the world to do, need to be reduced uterine neck and cervix or open. This part is already happening in the weeks before the birth, obstetricians and gynecologists and midwives speak at the shortening of the cervix by “Zervixreifung”. Now it is certain that birth preparation acupuncture supports this process, and this shortens the opening phase of the birth. With the result that the birth as a whole often faster runs. Some maternity clinics, but also midwives, offered therefore birth preparing acupuncture treatment. It starts from the 36th week.
Pain brake during childbirth
The analgesic effect of acupuncture is known. It turned out that acupuncture alleviates labour pains and the treated women need less pain medication. Many also report they would have felt more relaxed after inserting the needles. Others are experiencing a certain exhilaration that gives them new strength. Another advantage is that acupuncture does not affect a woman’s ability to actively work with at birth. 2008, 76 percent of the respondents birth clinics said in a survey of the German society for the study of pain after all: Yes, we use also acupuncture for pain relief.
Acupuncture, studies showed that can also improve the intensity of the contractions and make sure that they regularly come.
