Pregnancy Week 12-24

Second Trimester

During this trimester your baby begins to hear and respond to the outside environment. The baby's skeleton is developing bones which become visible during ultrasound, fat begins to form and the baby's sex becomes apparent. During this phase many changes take place as the mother's body grows in preparation for delivery. During this phase acupuncture can help to address many symptoms that arise such as fatigue, nausea, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, leg cramps, dizziness, edema, etc. Depending on the symptoms presenting we generally recommend one or two treatments per month.
