MISCARRIAGE AND ACUPUNCTURE

Reference image

A miscarriage is the loss of an embryo or foetus due to natural causes before 20 weeks of pregnancy. When the loss occurs in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it is referred to as an early miscarriage. If the loss happens after this, it is called a late miscarriage. About 85% of the loss of the baby occurs during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Most miscarriages that occur during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy may occur because something was wrong with the foetus, for example, a birth defect or a genetic disorder. However, by addressing underlying imbalances in the body, a miscarriage can be prevented from happening.

By having regular acupuncture treatments, especially from early conception to 12 weeks of pregnancy, a miscarriage may be significantly reduced, and pregnancy can be supported to reach full term.

“From a traditional Chinese medicine point of view, if there is weakness in the body where the body isn’t at its optimum health, miscarriage is more likely to occur as the mother needs to be healthy to nourish the foetus.” 

THE BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy to assist with the prevention and recovery of a miscarriage. Suffering from a miscarriage can be a very stressful and traumatic event. It can physically affect your body as well as your soul. 

Acupuncture is particularly beneficial to regulate the body hormones after a dilation and curettage (D&C) and prepare your body for your next pregnancy.    

 

REGULATE HORMONES

After a miscarriage, it may take some time for your menstrual cycle to become regular and for ovulation to occur. Acupuncture can assist in regulating the menstrual cycle. 

SUPPORT PROGESTERONE LEVELS

Acupuncture can assist with healthy progesterone levels. Progesterone is an important hormone to maintain the lining of the uterus. Healthy progesterone levels prevent spotting and bleeding as well as preventing miscarriage.

PREPARE ENDOMETRIAL LINING

By increasing blood flow to the uterus, supporting healthy progesterone levels, acupuncture can nourish, thicken and prepare the endometrial lining for your next pregnancy.

INCREASE BLOOD SUPPLY TO THE EMBRYO 

As acupuncture increases oxygen supply to the uterus, treatments can assist with cell division and implantation of the developing embryo.

“By having regular acupuncture treatments, specially from early conception to 12 weeks of pregnancy, miscarriage may significantly be reduced and pregnancy can be supported to reach full term.”
