Aligned Modern Health of Chicago has six acupuncturists, all women who are licensed and certified, on staff. We apply our knowledge of eastern Asian medicine to complement conventional prenatal care for pregnant women who are suffering from problems such as:

  • Morning sickness and nausea
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety, stress, and depression

Acupuncture during pregnancy is painless and absolutely safe. Thin needles are placed at strategic points on the body to release and stimulate health-enhancing energy. Sessions typically last 45 minutes in our Chicago area clinics.

Because drugs are not used, acupuncture has minimal side effects and is also effective in promoting overall wellness in women after they give birth.  There is also evidence that acupuncture can ease labor and the length of labor itself.

Intrigued by the possibilities of acupuncture for pregnancy complications and its related health issues? Call Aligned Modern Health today at 773-598-4387 to learn more or schedule an appointment with one of our qualified acupuncturists.


If you are not pregnant after several rounds of high-tech fertility treatments, or if you merely suspect you may have difficulty conceiving, consider turning to Aligned Modern Health for help.

Acupuncture before pregnancy, when used in conjunction with conventional treatments such as in-vitro fertilization, is effective in helping women get pregnant. The procedure can be used to treat conditions that make it difficult to conceive, or as a method to boost the effectiveness of IVF.

You may start acupuncture for pregnancy at any point. Undergoing sessions at the first sign you are having trouble conceiving is ideal – you may be able to avoid taking fertility drugs entirely.

If you are already taking prescription drugs, acupuncture also helps you deal with side effects of that drug regimen.

Aligned Modern Health has five convenient Chicago health clinic locations to serve our patients – West Loop, Streeterville, Lincoln Square, Lincoln Park at Diversey, and Southport.
