Benefits of Acupuncture During Pregnancy

Acupuncture during pregnancy has received a mixed response from the medical fraternity. There’s a growing body of research, especially from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) that supports acupuncture for pregnancy, especially for controlling labor pain.

At BH Acuhealth Clinic in Beverly Hills, Dr. Mitra provides licensed acupuncture therapy for a healthy pregnancy and post-pregnancy recovery. The benefits pregnant women can expect include the following:

1. Conception: Acupuncture improves the chances of getting natural pregnancy as it reduces stress and restores hormonal balance.

2. Morning Sickness: Pressing or stimulating the P6 acupressure point helps control acute nausea, vomiting, and similar symptoms.

3. Body aches and pains: Acupressure tends to reduce lower back pain and other body aches as a woman enters into subsequent trimesters.

4. Ease labor pain: Acupuncture is likely to ease women into labor as it helps reduce the pain in the pelvic area due to uterine contractions.

5. Induce Sound Sleep: Stimulating acupuncture on specific points helps reduce heartburn, headaches, fatigue, and other symptoms that likely disrupt restful sleep during pregnancy.

6. Depression: Pregnancy brings joy but can push some women into depression. Acupuncture helps women reduce anxiety and erratic mood swings.

7. Mental Calmness: Acupuncture can bring the feel-good factor into your life and prepares you mentally to embrace the new life after childbirth.

Dr. Mitra’s acupuncture therapy helps expecting women overcome anticipated problems in pregnancy. Embrace the new life with confidence! Start acupuncture today and experience the overwhelming benefits for yourself and for your baby’s natural development.

A Word from Dr. Mitra

“Once my patient is pregnant, my job is to make sure she is able to keep the baby. In the case of one patient, I worked on her to make sure she would not have any early contractions. I made sure she was able to hold the baby by nourishing the placenta, and increasing her blood circulation. I stimulated her body in a way that it could relax and reduce any excessive hormones, which allowed her body to concentrate on supporting the baby. That increased the chance of a successful pregnancy. She eventually gave birth to a lovely baby girl.”

Dr. Mitra has been an angel as I have been on my fertility journey!! I began seeing her after a failed IVF attempt, preparing for a second attempt. Based on her recommendation to change my diet, and having weekly sessions with her before my 2nd attempt, my AMH levels improved to normal and I had lost 20 lbs all within 2 months time. I believe her help allowed for a successful 2nd IVF procedure, and I am well into my second trimester currently! She is very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about her patients and their experience. I would highly recommend her as a wonderful acupuncturist!

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 7 months. I started seeing Mitra Daneshrad in November 2019 because at that time my cycles started becoming irregular. Before seeing a fertility specialist at the one year mark of trying or, taking any fertility medication we wanted to try an alternative approach. Fast forward to February 2020 and I just found out we're expecting! Thanks to Mitra and her knowledge and experience with infertility and acupuncture for helping us through our ttc journey. Mitra is extremely sweet and friendly and makes you feel super comfortable and relaxed. If you've ever questioned whether acupuncture works for infertility, I believe it does! I would definitely recommend Mitra to any couples who are struggling with trying to conceive.

I was initially referred to Dr. Mitra for lower back and sciatica pain related to a herniated disc. Her weekly treatments offered relief as well as a feeling of rejuvenation in my overall body. The added bonus of seeing Dr. Mitra is her extensive knowledge and experience with fertility and the female reproductive system. She not only worked on my back pain, but was also able to help with my cycle and any other issues that would come up for me such as nasal congestion. She is a great practitioner to have in one's overall health & wellness regimen.

Extremely healing, helpful and friendly. I have been coming to her for over a year and the treatments are always beneficial. And I am rather particular, so that means a lot. Well kept offices and other great doctors in the same space. She also shares daily affirmations to meditate on while on the table, which I enjoy.

Dr. Mitra is the absolute best! I was lucky enough to do Accupuncture sessions with her throughout my infertility struggles, pregnancy, birth of my miracle baby, post natal recovery and now as I try for my second! Mitra is so knowledgeable, kind and a fertility expert. She also treats any additional symptoms (emotional and physical) you are faced with each week. Truly, I believe she was integral part of my healthy pregnancy. She is very accommodating and truly cares.

Yes, absolutely. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) gives a green signal to acupuncture for pregnancy to manage labor pain. Also, it should only be performed by a licensed acupuncturist who knows how to professionally use needles without causing pain or discomfort.  

At BH Acuhealth Clinic, Dr. Mita Daneshrad, a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, has 14+ years of experience in treating pregnant women with acupuncture and ancient Chinese medicines. 

Undergoing regular acupuncture therapy helps reduce various common pregnancy symptoms ( nausea, pains, insomnia, etc.)  whilst building emotional strength for motherhood. 

We will monitor and moderate the frequency of acupuncture sessions based on the health outcomes and overall impact on the patient. 

Typically, Dr. Mitra has had patients who conceived after 3-4 months of starting acupuncture therapy. However, every patient is different. The number of acupuncture sessions depends on many factors, including your physical condition, age, medical history, and how your body responds to the acupuncture treatment. 

How about we hop on a call and schedule a medical consultation? It will help you gain clarity and a fresh perspective on conceiving.

Acupuncture is fast emerging as an alternative therapy for those who are struggling with infertility and/or postpartum depression. You heard us right! 

During pre-pregnancy, acupuncture helps to reduce stress levels, regulate menses, and improve ovarian health— all of which is crucial for natural egg development and conception. Acupuncture when used as an adjunct therapy to IVF, IUI, or other fertility treatments can improve the effectiveness of health outcomes. 

Likewise, the post-pregnancy phase has its own set of physical and emotional challenges for new mommies. Acupuncture can help with the recovery process after childbirth while containing postpartum depression. From helping women relax to gaining physical strength and increasing milk supply, we work on multiple stages of childbirth.

Acupuncture for pregnancy has been found to be safe and effective, especially against common symptoms, such as morning sickness, back pain, and stress. However, it should be performed by a qualified, licensed, and experienced acupuncturist who knows how to insert needles without causing any unexpected harm or discomfort. 

Regardless, you may experience mild reactions such as swelling and pain. However, it isn’t something that you need to worry about as they are temporary and would subside with time. 

At BH Acuhealth Clinic, we educate and empower women to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. Contact us
