While recurrent miscarriage is classified as the spontaneous consecutive loss of three or more pregnancies, even a single loss can be devastating, being both physically and emotionally draining.

At the London Acupuncture Clinic, it is an area we have been specialising in for over 15 years, including working inside a western recurrent miscarriage clinic.

By taking a holistic and thorough look at the whole body, we can look to identify any potential causes of miscarriage, including

  1. Embryo quality issues
  2. Hormonal issues (progesterone levels and thyroid function)
  3. Blood clotting disorders
  4. Immunological factors

The Benefits of Acupuncture for Recurrent Miscarriage

  1. Regulating Hormones: Acupuncture has been shown to regulate hormonal imbalances that may contribute to recurrent miscarriages. By enhancing the body’s natural ability to produce hormones, acupuncture creates a conducive environment for a successful pregnancy.
  2. Reducing Stress: Emotional and physical stress can play a significant role in recurrent miscarriages. Acupuncture helps to activate the body’s relaxation response, reducing stress levels and creating a harmonious atmosphere for conception.
  3. Improving Blood Flow: Adequate blood flow to the reproductive organs is crucial for a healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture stimulates blood circulation, ensuring that vital nutrients reach the uterus and supporting a nourishing environment for the embryo.
  4. Enhancing Immune Function: Acupuncture has been shown to modulate the immune system, addressing potential immune-related factors that may contribute to recurrent miscarriages.

Research on acupuncture and threatened miscarriage is limited although studies have shown positive benefits of supportive care.1

Lower miscarriage rates for those using acupuncture have also been reported by IVF units using acupuncture in house.2
