What It Is:
A series of acupuncture treatments, using a standardized set of acupuncture points to help prepare the body for labour.
1 treatment per week, starting at week 37 until delivery
relaxes ligaments and softens the cervix
may help to reduce mean labour time
helps to improve blood circulation to pelvis
may help to reduce the use of medical inductions
may reduce the use of epidurals
Additional acupuncture points can be added to treat pregnancy-induced symptoms including, but not limited to:
stress and anxiety
Acupuncture, along with lifestyle and dietary modifications, is a great way to help the body prepare for labour. While the pre-birth plan is a standardized set of acupuncture points, during our consultation you will get a chance to let me know what other pregnancy or non-pregnancy related symptoms you may be having. Acupuncture points can be added depending on your presenting symptoms.
