EFT for Pregnancy Nausea and Breast Pain

Dear EFT Community,

EFT practitioner Annie Bathgate writes about using EFT to relieve the breast pain and nausea a client was experiencing in pregnancy. The client went on to use EFT for all her pregnancy-related symptoms and also to help her prepare mentally and emotionally for the birth of her child.

A client contacted me for EFT phone sessions after discovering she was pregnant. “Beth” wished to remain anonymous but was happy for me to share her story with others. In the beginning of her pregnancy, she was having significant breast tenderness as well as nausea symptoms. She wondered if EFT would be helpful and safe for her symptoms. I encouraged her that it was worth looking into, especially if she was trying to stay away from taking pain medication during her pregnancy.

First we looked at her issue of breast pain. She described the pain as aching and at times “needle sharp.” When asked how painful it was on a scale of 0 to 10, she rated it about an 8 currently, sometimes as bad as a 10. We discussed her issues a bit more, how she felt about being a first-time mother, how her husband and she planned this pregnancy and how easy it was for her to become pregnant while other women struggle for years. We tapped on the following issues, since she had lots of feelings up. I asked her level of discomfort on the following statements, which ranged from 6 to 9. I typically do not use the ankle point that some have said has contradictions with pregnancy.

Even though my breasts hurt…

Even though my nipples are tender…

Even though I’m scared of being a mother…

Even though I’m scared I won’t be a good mother…

Even though I feel guilty that it was so easy to become pregnant…

We tapped on each of these statements until they were each down to a 1 or 0 on a scale of 0 to 10. After tapping, I asked how her breast tenderness was. She said the pain was down to a 2 out of 10. I encouraged her to continue tapping daily with the previous statements.

Next we looked at her nausea issue. She noticed that the nausea started around 11 a.m. and stopped around 2 p.m. I asked her how uncomfortable it was, on a scale of 0 to 10. She said during that time period it could get to a 7. We tapped on the following statements, even though she didn’t have any nausea during our session time:

Even though I feel nauseous between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m….

Even though I’m nervous that I’ll feel nauseous today…

Beth promised to keep me updated on her progress with her breast tenderness and nausea, but said she was feeling very relaxed and hopeful at the end of our phone session. She called me a week later, after her first visit with her doctor. The doctor was pleased with her progress and said her pregnancy was normal and she was progressing well.

She was excited. She has had minimal nausea and the breast discomfort has stayed below a 2. Everything looked great according to the doctor and she even got to see her baby’s heartbeat on the ultrasound. She set up future appointments with me as new symptoms emerged with her pregnancy, as well as to prepare mentally and emotionally for labor and delivery.
