HQ 48 Acupuncture in Pregnancy and Obstetrics with Debra Betts

Have you heard the Chinese saying that a pregnant woman should read beautiful poetry, and no one should deliver bad news to her?

In this episode we discussed all things pregnancy related with Debra Betts – including the merits of this old superstitious advice.

We covered everything from the basics of pregnancy, and forbidden points, through to some more complicated scenarios around inducing labour, and the rise of gall bladder attacks during pregnancy in modern times.
