When should I start my treatment?

Treatment can begin anytime throughout pregnancy as symptoms appear. We recommend pre-birth acupuncture to begin starting at 36 weeks. Breech presentation should ideally be seen between 34-35 weeks.

When receiving acupuncture treatment during pregnancy, we recommend asking your doctor or midwife if it is the right treatment for you.
