Acupuncture to Prevent Miscarriage

Support for Couples at Dan-tien Acupuncture Clinic

At Dan-tien Acupuncture, we specialize in supporting couples to maintain a healthy pregnancy. As more couples decide to have children later in life, the frequency of miscarriage has increased. While the exact cause is often unknown, the most common reason is chromosomal abnormalities. Other factors include structural problems, autoimmune issues, and hormonal imbalances.

How Acupuncture Helps

Addressing Hormonal and Autoimmune Factors

  • Acupuncture has been shown to help with many hormonal and autoimmune-related causes of miscarriage.
  • Combined with herbs, dietary changes, and supplements, acupuncture can significantly improve the likelihood of a successful pregnancy.

Reducing Stress and Improving Hormonal Balance

  • Acupuncture helps reduce stress, which can negatively affect hormonal levels during pregnancy.

Before Conception

  • Using acupuncture and a tailored diet before conception can help reduce the possibility of chromosomal problems in both partners.

Recurrent Miscarriages

Recurrent miscarriages are defined as having two or more miscarriages. Investigations into recurring miscarriage often only take place after three losses. Causes include:

  • Parental chromosomal anomalies
  • Maternal blood clotting disorders
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Structural uterine anomalies

For up to 50% of women, a causative factor is never found.

Threatened Miscarriage

  • Vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy may indicate a threatened miscarriage. Acupuncture can help reduce the chances of miscarriage, but it is advised to first see your doctor.

Comprehensive Support for Future Pregnancies

At Dan-tien Acupuncture Clinic, we support couples through their loss and help them become healthy and strong for future pregnancies. We create a relaxed and caring atmosphere where you will feel positive and nurtured. Our services include:

  • Stress management and relaxation techniques to help with anxiety and fear during early pregnancy.
  • Research has shown that supportive care can increase the likelihood of a live birth from 33% to 81%.
