Acupuncture for labour induction
Acupuncture has been used very successfully for thousands of years to induce women who are over-due in their pregnancy
There can be many factors that may prevent you from going into labour naturally around your due date.
Acupuncture can provide you with a very effective treatment to help you go into labour and avoid being medically induced. Several treatments received over a few days, in my experience, and in clinical trials have proven to be the most effective way to encourage labour to start naturally.
Acupuncture is a very natural way of inducing labour and works by encouraging the body to release the appropriate hormones, naturally starting your labour. Other acupuncture points can be used to help you relax, take your mind of the situation and relieve anxiety and worry. Acupuncture points can also be employed to ripen the cervix and encourage the downward movement of your baby, further stimulating the release of oxytosin.
There have been some studies on acupuncture and it’s effect on inducing labour which showed that using acupuncture to stimulate labour in overdue mothers to be had a success rate of 88%.
