Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Constipation is a highly successful treatment procedure for a condition that is all too common and cannot be resolved through medication. Too often difficulty in passing stool is just accepted as “normal” in pregnancy. Well it’s not, and it’s a needless discomfort.

From a Western Medical understanding the increase in the levels of progesterone and estrogen caused by pregnancy aid in relaxing the smooth muscle of the body and this would include the muscles of the digestive tract, making bowl movements sluggish and slow.

Of course is doesn’t help that during pregnancy many women also suffer from nausea (please read over my article, Acupuncture for Morning Sickness, for more information), as result needed fiber may not be ingested. Furthermore vital fluid necessary to moisten and regulate our digestive function may be lost, and fluid intake reduced.

Finally women are also often prescribed Iron Supplements a known side effect of which can result in constipation. Laxatives obviously are NOT recommended in pregnancy and even natural vegetable based ones can pass through to the placenta.

Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Constipation however is an entirely safe and highly effective form of treatment to resolve such conditions.

From a Traditional Chinese Medical point of view there are four primary patterns that are associated with Pregnancy and Constipation treatments and your Acupuncturist should be able to make a clear distinction as to which course of treatment in best to take. However, I hasten to add that it is often important to resolve any nausea (please read over my article, Acupuncture for Morning Sickness, for more information) or heartburn (please read over my article, Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Heartburn, for more information) prior to this as these predisposing factors may be leading to the imbalance resulting in constipation.

If you are pregnant and suffering from constipation or digestive problems, and want to ensure the best possible health for yourself and baby, without medication then perhaps you should consider Acupuncture for Pregnancy and Constipation Treatments.
