Why are some points contraindicated during pregnancy?
This is a very common question and concern. There is no absolute, 100% agreed upon list of these points in modern times. However, knowing the reasons for traditionally contraindicated points has guided my work.

Based on what was taught to me, I arrange contraindicated points into 3 categories:
1. Points that bring the Qi down
2. Points on the abdomen
3. Points based on empirical evidence

Honoring Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang combine to create all beings

Yin and Yang are interrelated, dependent upon one another, emerging and dissolving into one another. Yin and Yang are in a constant dance of definition and communion. Yin is quiet, stillness, being, and nighttime; while Yang is loud, moving, doing, and daytime.

Tao Ta Ching 1

Clear light of Yang

The clear light of Yang is easily known in contrast to the manifested.

The five senses discern the manifested.
How is it that we know and trust our clear unmanifested potential?

Tao Te Ching

One

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of Heaven and Earth.
The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.

Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Ever desiring, one sees the manifestations.
These two spring from the same source but differ in name;
this appears as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to all mystery.

-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
