Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Alhamdulillahi Rabbil 'Arshil 'Atheem, Was Sallallahu Wa Sallam 'Alaa Nabiyyinaa Muhammad, Wa 'Alaa Aaihi Wa shaabihi Ajma'een

Was salaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. There is one hadeeth where Al Hijaamah is disapproved of, pregnant women were not mentioned.

Maalik's Muwatta - Book 18
Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that his father used to be cupped while he was fasting and he would not then break his fast. Hisham added, "I only ever saw him being cupped when he was fasting."

Malik said, "Cupping is only disapproved of for some one who is fasting out of fear that he will become weak and if it were not for that, it would not be disapproved of. I do not think that a man who is cupped in Ramadan and does not break his fast, owes anything, and I do not say that he has to make up for the day on which he was cupped, because cupping is only disapproved of for someone fasting if his fast is endangered. I do not think that someone who is cupped, and is then well enough to keep the fast until evening, owes anything, nor does he have to make up for that day."

I came across two statements that contradict each other on various medical websites.

1.  Pregnant women should not be cupped.
2.  Pregnant women should not be cupped on the lower back, nor the abdomen.

As for pregnant women giving someone else Al Hijaamah, Allahu Aa'lam.  I found nothing that prohibits her from practicing it on others in the books of medicine nor from Qur'aan, As Sunnah nor from the understanding of As Salafus Saalih may Allah be pleased with all of them. I can only advise her to leave off a matter that causes her to have doubts for that which she don't doubt.  Arba'een An Nawawee #11.

Aboo Dawood - Book 28, Number 3848 Narrated Aboo Hurayrah radhiyallahu anhu, The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam  said, The best medical treatment you apply is cupping.

Bi 'idhnillahi Ta 'Aalaa, if I find anything else concerning this I will post it.  

Was Salaamun 'Alaa Mursaleen, Walhamdulillahi Rabbil 'Aalameen

barakallahu feeki for your reply, but insha'allah perhaps it would have been more helpful to give a more detailed question. there is a tape on cupping by muhammad musaa nasr and on it he was giving examples of places to be cupped and the different benefit for it(i.e. cupping the crown of the head for memory , the occipital lobes for eyes, etc.) he mentioned that to cup the sciatic area(i.e. the lower back) is good for hemmorhoids, but also for women with bleeding problems...this is where the question came, knowing that cupping that area is good for that particular "female problem" would it be a benefit or a detriment to cup a pregnant woman in that area? this is my question restated...barakallahu feekum.
