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:
- Conception: Acupuncture improves the chances of getting natural pregnancy as it reduces stress and restores hormonal balance.
- Morning Sickness: Pressing or stimulating the P6 acupressure point helps control acute nausea, vomiting, and similar symptoms.
- Body aches and pains: Acupressure tends to reduce lower back pain and other body aches as a woman enters into subsequent trimesters.
- 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.
- Induce Sound Sleep: Stimulating acupuncture on specific points helps reduce heartburn, headaches, fatigue, and other symptoms that likely disrupt restful sleep during pregnancy.
- Depression: Pregnancy brings joy but can push some women into depression. Acupuncture helps women reduce anxiety and erratic mood swings.
- 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is acupuncture safe during pregnancy?
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.
2. How many acupuncture sessions do I need to get pregnant?
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.
3. How does acupuncture help in pre and post-pregnancy?
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.
4. What are the risks of acupuncture for pregnant women?
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.
