Acupuncture in Pregnancy & Childbirth is a concise, highly illustrated and practical guide in using acupuncture to treat women throughout their pregnancy and labour. Drawing on an unparalleled wealth of experience as a midwife and an acupuncturist, the author has produced a book accessible to both acupuncture students and practitioners.
