Pregnancy Health

Family Tree Acupuncture can recommend natural and practical steps to contribute positively to a healthy pregnancy. We believe healthy people make healthy babies and consequently your health, lifestyle and environment take on even more significance during pregnancy.

You are what you eat – a principal never so important as during pregnancy. For example, we know that if your diet is lacking in certain B vitamins, and/or iron, that the quality of your blood will suffer and you may become anaemic. We also know that exposure to certain toxic substances can cause cellular damage – possibly affecting your fertility and the health of your baby.

Good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle before and during pregnancy can make the difference between health and illness and supports the general constitution of your child for life. Preparing for your pregnancy helps you to be as healthy as possible so you can nurture the healthiest baby.

Consider This
