The mission of the Maternity Acupuncture Association (MAA) is to promote a high-quality standard of care in the field of Fertility, Pregnancy and Perinatal Acupuncture/East Asian Medicine. We educate the public and allied birth professionals about the efficacy of Acupuncture/East Asian Medicine during conception, pregnancy, birth and the postpartum phase. We work to advance the individual practitioner and the profession as a whole through grassroots community building, collaboration and education.
The Maternity Acupuncture Association (MAA) was formed in 2012 by a group of Acupuncturists in Seattle who are passionate about the benefits of Acupuncture for women in the perinatal period. We came together with a vision to serve both the practitioner and the patient locally, regionally, and nationally with an eye towards global collaboration with other similar organizations.
We serve the practitioner by providing resources, educational opportunities, and a community forum to learn and grow professionally. We also support the practitioner by providing a national directory to list their services and to find other qualified perinatal specialists.
We serve the patient by providing education about the benefits of Acupuncture in the perinatal period including published research as well as our own anecdotal evidence of efficacy. Our provider directory helps patients find an appropriate practitioner who meets the minimum requirements for safety and effective treatment of pregnant women.
We serve the community of Allied Birth Professionals by providing them with the education they need on the benefits of Acupuncture for fertility, pregnancy, labor and postpartum conditions so that they can make the best use of these benefits for their own clients. We also serve the community of Allied Birth Professionals by providing community and collaboration opportunities to enhance the overall care of women during these times.
The MAA is made up of people who are: visionaries, healers, teachers, learners, advocates, mothers, listeners, practitioners, leaders, mavericks, and creators of a better future.
We are engaged and committed to providing education and access to high-quality healthcare to ease your way to better health and happiness.
