Acupuncture and Pregnancy

Last weekend I attended a 2-day training in Acupuncture and Acupressure for Labor and Delivery. The seminar was packed with information and totally worth the drive to Minneapolis.


The first day focused on Labor Stages, Differential Diagnosis, and Treatment Options, and then we went through each stage in detail and even practiced some Tui Na and Acupressure.

The second day was more about labor preparation, how to apply everything in our own practice, insurance, and building a successful business.

Best part, at least for me, was when we went through how to recognize a problem during labor: position, bone, etc.


Claudia Citkovitz, our instructor, is an amazing woman with such passion and her hospital experience is priceless, not to speak about her willingness to teach and share knowledge!

I still have some time until graduation and I don’t think Labor and Pregnancy will be the main focus in my own practice but, even so, the knowledge I gained in 2 days was worth the money and effort.

If you ever think about working with pregnant women and want to learn more I strongly recommend her seminars or one of her internships:


I’ll leave you with some pictures from Minneapolis and wish you all a Happy 4th of July!
