Prenatal :

I had regular acupuncture with Graeme throughout the 3rd trimester of my pregnancy and in the months following the birth of my son. 

I found this extremely beneficial. On a physical level the acupuncture supported my body as it went through the huge changes of late pregnancy and then birth. It helped to relieve tension and pain in my upper back and strengthen weakness in my lower back. 

As I prepared to birth Graeme was able to use specific points to help my baby move into a good position and help my body begin the process of softening and opening. 

Emotionally the acupuncture sessions helped to steady my mood and allowed me to understand the myriad feelings and emotions around birth and becoming a mother. 

Overall I found the acupuncture to be an important part of preparing my body and mind for a natural and empowered birth.
