Re: Acupuncture While Pregnant?

Acupuncture is great in general, and especially good during pregnancy. Just make sure, like with a chiropractor, that you're working with someone that is trained to work with pregnant women. There are some points that are hugely contraindicated by pregnancy, but I would think anyone who's liscensed ought to know those. It's probably more a matter of if you get someone who's had a little extra training, they'd be able to help you more (sort of like the difference between going to a family practicitioner and an OBGYN)

If you've never done it before, don't plan anything that requires a lot of brain power for the rest of the day. Mine always left me really mellow and kind of spacy.
