Supporting fertility is not just about boosting your ability to conceive and getting you pregnant but also nurturing a safe, comfortable pregnancy and birth of a beautiful healthy baby. 


Acupuncture during pregnancy is an ideal form of treatment, as it offers drug- free relief from a multitude of problems that can arise during pregnancy and childbirth. Conditions regarded as normal in pregnancy can be address with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine preparing a woman's body by tonifying and nourishing.

Baby position in the womb
Acupuncture during pregnancy london
Ideally for the labour, baby is positioned head down facing your back with the chin tucked in his/her chest and the back of the head ready to enter the pelvis. Most of the babies settle into this position within the 32 and 36 weeks. Acupuncture and Moxa are great natural treatments that help the baby find the optimal position. My only recommendation would be to not wait for week 36, if your baby still need a little nudge to turn. The earlier you come, the more successful the treatment is. 

With mothers that I worked throughout their pregnancy, I have noticed over the years that the babies settle in the right position earlier (generally week 30). 

By week 36, the size of the baby will allow very little space for manoeuvre and more intervention might be needed (manually spinning the baby). 

"Eca's treatments and advice guided me through an amazing pregnancy and my dream birth. Having her by my side was the best thing I did for my baby, myself and my husband."
