Yes. Acupuncture is a wonderful modality to treat pregnant women. The most important point is to always inform your acupuncturist if you are trying to conceive or if you are pregnant. If you might possibly be pregnant but are not sure, let your provider know! The timing of your cycle is critical in choosing the appropriate points for your health goals. A very small number of acupuncture points are contraindicated during pregnancy. This means they cannot be used safely on pregnant women. Always get acupuncture from a licensed acupuncturist, let your acupuncturist know about any health concerns and diagnosis you have, and always let your acupuncturist know if you MAYBE MIGHT have conceived or if you are pregnant. If you satisfy these three criteria, your chances of receiving a safe and therapeutic acupuncture treatment are just as high as for those who are not pregnant.
