Ensuring a Healthy Pregnancy

Traditional Chinese Medicine provides a complete and effective framework to support and stabilize your pregnancy. With hundreds of Acupuncture protocols at our disposal, we can tailor a treatment plan designed to ensure optimal health during your pregnancy and to correct many common pregnancy problems. Acupuncture does not conflict with conventional medical treatment, and can serve as an effective complement to the recommendations of your OB/GYN. In fact, many OB’s in Houston refer their patients to us for supportive care in resolving pregnancy issues.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been used for centuries to treat pregnancy related problems. The treatment strategies we employ to help you are designed to be safe, effective, and support a healthy, problem-free pregnancy.

Why Do So Many Pregnant Women Come To Our Clinic Every Single Week?

Specialized Care

Since 2004, we’ve specialized in holistic obstetrics. Our Director, Chris Axelrad, serves on the Executive Board of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine – and was President from 2014 – 2016. He and the entire staff have done extensive post-graduate training in women’s health, fertility, and pregnancy care.

Unparalleled Experience

Perhaps nobody in Houston has treated more pregnant women with acupuncture and natural medicine than we have. Because we are also a fertility clinic, we treat several hundred pregnant patients yearly.

Trusted By Doctors

Many of Houston’s top OB/Gyns refer their patients to us for a reason. We take great care of you – AND we help you get great results.

A Spirit Of Service

We know how stressful it is when you are having health issues during pregnancy. We will always give you our best effort and make sure you are listened to and cared for.

Common Questions

IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?

In skilled hands, acupuncture is absolutely safe during pregnancy. We never place needles in dangerous areas that would cause damage to you or baby.

WHAT ABOUT HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS?

We are very experienced in using herbs and supplements during pregnancy. However, your comfort level is our primary concern and we will respect your wishes should you choose not to take them.

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

We can absolutely do this for you. For over a decade we’ve given dietary advice to many hundreds of pregnant women who have all had healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.

DO YOU DO “ACUPUNCTURE LABOR INDUCTION”?

We prefer to call it “birth facilitation” because nothing we do is forceful or overly stimulating. We have successfully helped many women to give birth on time and avoid medical induction.

WHAT ABOUT TURNING BREECH BABIES?

While acupuncture has a stellar reputation in this area, we choose not to provide this service. We feel the safety of mother and baby comes first and any attempts to manually turn your baby should be done in a hospital or OB clinic setting where baby’s heart-rate can be monitored.

CAN ACUPUNCTURE CAUSE CONTRACTIONS?

Yes, but only if certain points are used and those points are forcefully stimulated. We avoid points known to stimulate uterine contractions so you have nothing to worry about. Again, we’ve treated over 2,000 women during pregnancy and we’ve never had a case of inducing early labor with our treatments. Ever.
