After my nursing studies, I decided to specialise in Acupuncture and I am currently studying for a PhD at the University of Barcelona. My main speciality is acupuncture treatments for pregnant women, either to correct fetal malposition or to stimulate cervical maturation from the 39th week of gestation. I also treat all the symptoms that occur during pregnancy such as nausea and vomiting, insomnia, sciatica and lower back pain. I believe that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that has very good results before, during and after pregnancy.
