Thank you for your understanding.

Benefits of Pre-Birth Acupuncture?

Feedback from midwives about pre-birth acupuncture is that acupuncture has:

  • Reduced the length of time women spent in labour
  • Reduced the number of women requiring medical intervention (medical induction, epidural and caesarian section)
  • Increased normal vaginal deliveries

Pre-Birth Acupuncture Research

Research from New Zealand showed that pregnant women who receive pre-birth treatment, either go into spontaneous labour around their due dates, or if induction is required they respond well to acupuncture induction and move efficiently into a natural labour.

Research has demonstrated that the duration of labour in a group of 140 women giving birth for the first time was reduced from 8 hours and 2 minutes in the control group to 6 hours and 36 minutes in the group that received pre-birth acupuncture on a weekly basis from week 36 until the due date.
