Acupuncture For Nausea During Pregnancy

Although nausea during pregnancy is often dismissed as something you ‘just have to put up’, it can be very debilitating.  Whilst it is often referred to as morning sickness, the nausea or vomiting can occur at any time of the day or night and significantly interfere with day to day living.  It is thought to affect about 50% of pregnancies and usually occurs between 6 and 16 weeks.  Factors that are believed to cause it include the massive hormonal changes that are taking place alongside fatigue, stress and other emotional considerations.
