Natural Support for All Your Pregnancy Needs
Labor & Delivery
Your Initial Consultation is Free.
Come in and meet us in person. Learn more about our approach and what we do. The free consultation is an opportunity to review your health history and goals and see if you’re comfortable with our philosophy and recommendations.
We use tiny needles to get dramatic shifts by smoothing out hormonal shifts, improving blood flow, and reducing inflammation. Acupuncture activates and awakens your body’s innate healing process while regulating your nervous system to help to rest and heal.
Herbs & Supplements
Our custom-formulated herbal remedies and nutritional supplements work together to address your patterns. There are many herbs that are safe to use in pregnancy that can help with everything from sleep to blood pressure.
We teach you simple yet powerful strategies for using the food you eat to optimize your health without letting it take over your life. Small changes can support your healthy pregnancy and nourish your baby’s body too. And we’ll never ask you to give up chocolate.
Create a lifestyle that works for you and your healthy pregnancy. We will help you build a toolbox of simple strategies that fit into your life, support you and your baby, and help you feel more vibrant along the way. We know how busy life can get so we keep our recommendations simple and manageable.
Every woman I know anticipates nausea and morning sickness as a miserable but necessary part of pregnancy. While not every pregnant woman experiences this malady, many do, but acupuncture and herbs can help reduce the severity and frequency of symptoms. Research shows that weekly acupuncture treatment lessens nausea, retching, and vomiting in early pregnancy. In more severe cases, acupuncture and herbs can help women avoid the use of medication to manage their symptoms.
For many women, the later stages of pregnancy are difficult because of pain. As the baby grows and puts increasing pressure on the mother’s body, she may develop muscular or skeletal pain, such as back pain, sciatica, or symphysis pubis (pubic bone) pain. Acupuncture and shiatsu massage can be a much-needed form of relief, lessening pain and discomfort, and without the dangers of pain medications during pregnancy.
Towards the end of pregnancy, most babies will rotate into a head down position in preparation for birth. Breech, or head-up position, occurs in 3-5% of pregnancies at term, and typically indicates a cesarean birth. Acupuncturists may use both needles and a moxibustion technique to encourage baby to move into optimal position for delivery. Read all about Breech Position and Eastern Medicine here.
Megan and I first began working together when I was still in acupuncture school and working as an intern in the student clinic. Over the years, we had the chance to work together on a number of issues- digestion, support while trying to conceive, and...
As the popularity of acupuncture has grown, so has the notoriety of the so-called 'forbidden points' of pregnancy. As someone who's been through a couple of pregnancies, I know well the anxiety it can provoke to have such a small and vulnerable person so reliant upon...
When I first met Audrey and Charlie, they had been trying to conceive their first child for over 4 years. When it became clear after a year that a pregnancy wasn’t going to be as easy to achieve as they’d hoped, they began looking for answers. Not long after, Charlie...

Your Initial Consultation is Free.
What to Expect
At your free consultation, we will review your health history, current condition, and goals, and lay out a plan to get you there. Have your questions answered and see if you’re comfortable with our approach and recommendations. Request your free consultation here.
During you initial visit, we dive deep to get a crystal clear understanding of your root cause patterns. We ask lots of questions, feel your pulse, and check for areas of tension or pain, all to inform our understanding of your body and what treatments are the best fit for you. You will have your first acupuncture treatment at this visit and leave with a simple treatment plan to guide you.
Each week you return for follow-up acupuncture sessions to keep you moving forward. We will check on your progress, make adjustments as needed, and keep your momentum going.
Once you’re feeling great we help you transition toward maintaining your results. We gradually increase the time between sessions until you no longer need to come in regularly (although lots of folks love their monthly self-care visits!)
