Insomnia during pregnancy is a common complaint for a variety of reasons, including nausea, increased urination at night, heartburn, difficulty changing positions and stress. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be a great relief for this condition, working to address the root of the problem and improve overall health and wellbeing.
If insomnia was a problem prior to pregnancy, this can often become exacerbated during pregnancy. Expectant mothers should aim to incorporate mild physical exercise during the day, relaxation during the evening and a regular night-time routine to actively address this issue. A combination of Acupuncture, along with Qi Gong meditation exercises can also help ease stress, calm the mind and address any underlying imbalances which may be contributing to the insomnia.
