Pregnancy Acupuncture for your Third Trimester

This is the period of time from 28 weeks to birth.

Congratulations you’re in your third trimester, let’s continue to Bring It On!

By now you may be wondering just how big that belly can get and are starting to turn your attention to labour, delivery and even baby names. During this time you may find that some uncomfortable issues arise. As your baby and belly is getting bigger and you’re getting breathless you may find you need some support to alleviate any ailments or discomfort. Bring It On Pregnancy Acupuncture is a natural, safe and gentle method to use. This is also the time that your baby should turn head down. If you have been advised by your medical professional that your baby is breech (not head down), then here at Bring it On we can help you get baby into the desired position for delivery.
