Thank you for giving me healing and a space of peace and serenity for the past few months couldn’t have gotten through it without you!

During pregnancy its highly beneficial to nurture our emotions and to build inner stillness and to be open and kind to ourselves, rest often, eat well, look at beautiful paintings, eat exquisite and healthy nourishing foods and seek out classical, beautiful music.  It is such an amazing job to be making a whole person and helping their being come to life. 

Acupuncture can be used safely throughout your pregnancy for general wellbeing.  Many women say that they even just love lying up on the Acupuncture bed for a well- earned rest.  


There are certain key times for acupuncture such as having a session at the end of 3 months and at the end of 6 months to replenish the mother’s qi and reserves or essence.

From 36 weeks on weekly acupuncture is recommended to aid the birthing process. 


…more kind words.

Hello Emer, Al arrived on Monday night at 21:30, after induction at 10am that morning. He’s fab and we’re in love with him. Labour was quick to come and tough through to delivery. But delivery was short enough and no major trauma apart from a few ‘below’tears. Am sure your skills played a big role in all of the above, so thank you for everything! I met a woman who was induced at the same time as me, still having Labour pains as I was wheeled to my room at midnight with Al. I’m glad we took the week to try everything. Chat Soon.

Just a quick note to say how amazing Emer is. This Lady does make miracles!! Started seeing Emer at the beginning of the year for fertility acupuncture. With her help & support, miraculously 3months later we got pregnant :) Thank you x I am seeing Emer on a regular basis since & she helped me to combat pregnancy nausea, inflamed sinuses & even horrible pregnancy rash!!! I was waking up at night in agony for the last few weeks wanting to peel my skin off but with her help (few needles & a few ear pricks :)) I finally slept through the night.. Thank you Emer! You do know how to make miracles..

Pre-birth Preparation.


From 36 weeks we also recommend a weekly Acupuncture session to prepare you for birth.

ACUPUNCTURE LABOUR PREPARATION

From 40 weeks onwards we can carry out labour preparation Acupuncture.   If you are overdue you may require more than one session.

Specific points are used to stimulate and strengthen uterine contractions, promote proper fetus positioning and encourage the downward movement of Qi (energy) which can bring on labour.

All published studies have shown acupuncture to be safe for both mother and fetus when applied by a qualified practitioner.   

It is well understood that acupuncture helps to increase endorphin release. Acupuncture in labour helps the mother to remain calmer and more focused, increasing her body’s capacity to produce endorphins and bringing a greater capacity to cope with the labour pain.


Roughly 2 years ago I met Emer and started my journey with acupuncture, I had been through a rough time having been diagnosed with PTSD following a car accident and then suffering a miscarriage which all led to extreme anxiety . Myself and my partner were on a journey to try conceive again but I knew I needed to deal with my anxiety and that’s what led me to try accupuncture. I regularly attended with Emer and along with a few sessions of CBT I got my anxiety in check, both helped me to make some positive changes to my life. Once I felt back to myself my journey to conceive began unfortunately it was not as simple as I hoped.. following a trial on Clomid I then went to start the IVF process all the while I was still having accupuncture, Emer advised on diet and supplements and also how to take care of myself to encourage conception. I regularly attended with Emer because it was my hour to look after myself and bring myself “together” as well as help with conceiving. Roll on to Christmas 2017 and just before I was to begin the IVF process I found out I was pregnant. During the 9 months I kept attending accupuncture because it kept me centred but also the support from Emer reduced my worry and fear of miscarrying ... emotionally I was in a fantastic place again due to my accupuncture and finally having baby Fionàn!! I’ve mentally been in a great place afterwards. I cannot recommend Emer and accupuncture enough... I’m throughly grateful to Emer and I couldn’t have shared this whole experience with anyone better. 🥀 Forever grateful Emer L.
