Pregnancy Care Program

For women who would like to work with us during their pregnancy we offer comprehensive individual programmes of pregnancy care.

At the Australian Centre for Natural Medicine we have been providing treatment for Women during pregnancy for over 20 years.

Our Women’s Health services for supportive care during pregnancy base’s treatment approaches on Eastern Medical philosophy, offering an alternative theoretical understanding of pregnancy and the natural phases of change that occur in the body during this time.

This holistic understanding provides the basis of our pain free treatment approach for women suffering from symptoms that may arise during their pregnancy.

Treatments are tailored for each individual woman and pregnancy.
We believe women can benefit from supportive care throughout each stage of pregnancy.

In many cases a healthy mother supports a healthy birth and baby. Most women are passionate about ensuring their health during this time.

Each stage of pregnancy and some of the symptoms associated with it, either physical or emotional, are a natural result of changes in the female body during both pre and postnatal periods.

However when imbalances occur women can experience excessive symptoms or discomfort. In Chinese Medicine philosophy the female body during pregnancy is understood in a completely independent way.

Changes can be compared and understood within the greater environmental cycles like Lunar cycles (moon phases) and Earth cycle principles utilising the concepts of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang will undergo no more extreme changes in the body than during pregnancy.

In order to understand and manage symptoms this model of care and treatment focuses on you and the individual internal and external factors that might be contributing to the generation of these symptoms and conditions.
Our service is here to understand and support this process for each individual woman and pregnancy.

At Australian Centre for Natural Medicine our practitioners use Japanese style acupuncture. The gentle and relaxing treatment techniques are a functional means of positively influencing the body system. We aim to provide relaxation and comfort to our clients with pregnancy beds and positioning that allows 1st and 3rd trimester patients to deeply enjoy their acupuncture treatments.

Treatments can be stand alone or our complete pregnancy care program can be implemented. Treatments are also easily tailored to by synergistic with other resources women may be utilising to support their pregnancy such as medical treatments, midwife or doula, pregnancy yoga, birth plans and hypnobirthing etc.

If you are interested in receiving treatment or want to know more please feel free to contact Australian Centre for Natural Medicine on 07 55755300 during office hours or email us an enquiry.

We look forward to being of service.
