For hundreds of year’s Chinese medicine has physically supported women before giving birth. Acupuncture is utilized to assist the women’s body to get ready for the birthing process. Acupuncture facilitates the healthy progression of key physical markers such as relaxing of pelvic ligaments/cervical dilation and regular uterine contractions.
Clients start treatment in week 34-36 with weekly treatments up to the due date. Current research indicates there was an overall 35% reduction in the number of inductions, 31% reduction in the epidural rate; 32% reduction in emergency cesarean delivery; and a 9% increase in normal vaginal birth for women who used acupuncture for pre birth. Simply worded, my clients who had weekly acupuncture tell me their labor was shorter and proceeded smoothly.
