Acupuncture & Acupressure treatments for Gestational Diabetes 



I was unlucky to end up with gestational diabetes in my pregnancy.  The specialist that I was seeing was talking about inducing my labour at 38 weeks which I was very unsure of knowing how hard this can be especially for a first baby.  They did say it would depend a lot on my blood sugars and as I was diet controlled this was largely up to me.  I started seeing Tracy at 36 weeks, initially just once a week and then more frequently the further along I got.  My blood sugars had started to creep up before I saw her the first time but remained at a healthy level from then on.  Because of this, I was told that I wouldn't be induced until 39 weeks 5 days.  I asked Tracy to help get my body ready for the induction (which I was dreading), hoping to go into labour myself or at least have a less horrendous experience.  Tracy was fantastic - she gave my me and my husband pressure points to work on at home in between sessions with her, and I ended up going into labour 2 days before the induction date.  The labour was relatively quick and I had a lovely waterbirth with no pain relief, drips...  which is very uncommon for someone with gestational diabetes.  I'll definitely be coming to Tracy for baby number two, diabetes or not - I couldn't thank her enough!
