Miscarriage Q&A

What causes a miscarriage?

A miscarriage describes a spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before week 20. Many miscarriages occur due to the improper development of the fetus. There are also maternal health factors that can contribute to the loss of a pregnancy, including:

  • Infections
  • Thyroid disease
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Cervical or uterine disorders

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness provides holistic acupuncture treatments to help prevent a miscarriage. The specialists can treat the underlying conditions that increase your risk for pregnancy loss before you become pregnant. If you’re currently pregnant, acupuncture promotes healthy well-being, which can support you in carrying the baby to term. 

How does acupuncture support a healthy pregnancy?

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to prevent miscarriages. The techniques the Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness providers use focus on restoring balance in your body, boosting blood circulation, and stimulating your body’s natural healing processes.

Acupuncture sessions can address miscarriage-related issues like:

  • Poor-quality egg and sperm
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Uterine lining issues
  • Autoimmune disorders

Expectant mothers who are over 35 years old can also benefit from routine acupuncture treatments to prevent pregnancy complications and miscarriage.

If you experience a miscarriage, your acupuncture specialist can use techniques to cleanse the uterus and revitalize your overall health. They can also support your recovery from a dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure and help you navigate the emotional stress of a miscarriage.

What other treatments can prevent miscarriage?

In addition to acupuncture sessions, the Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness providers specialize in Chinese herbs to support wellness.

They customize a care plan using herbs and other supplements to prepare your body for pregnancy. The providers can also recommend supplements that are safe to use during pregnancy to support maternal health and the development of the fetus.

You can also receive recommendations for exercises, stress reduction techniques, and diet changes that keep you physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.

If you are recovering from a miscarriage, the specialists can work with you on a care plan to restore your reproductive health if you plan to become pregnant again.
