These acupuncture treatments promote a healthy and natural birth, with a focus on the cervix and pelvis for labour. The acupuncture points that are used during this time boost energy, aid relaxation and nourish the blood in the body as well as softening the ligaments and tendons prior to labour and aiding in cervix dilation.
In pregnant women, acupuncture is safe and can typically be used to help eliminate morning sickness, fluid retention and also in preparing the body for labour. For those mums-to-be having difficulty sleeping, pregnancy acupuncture can also provide relief.
Reduced the length of time women spent in labour, reduced the number of women requiring medical intervention (medical induction, epidural and c section) and increased rates of normal vaginal births. Closer to the time of the due date, pregnancy acupuncture can also help to “ripen” the cervix.
