The Acupuncturist can activate certain points on the body which will help to balance hormones needed for pregnancy, help to increase ovulation, help the uterus to become very healthy for implantation, all the while increasing circulation and nutrients to the growing fetus, helping mom to absorb and digest food better, etc. Acupuncture is AMAZING!
