In brief: Yes

But you want to see someone who is experienced with pregnant women.
If it is a treatment that can be delayed until after delivery that might be better.

In brief: Gravid Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be safely performed during pregnancy, however there are particular points which must be avoided such as points that hasten delivery.
