How acupuncture helps with labor

Thinking about your upcoming due date?

There are two ways to approach labor preparation with acupuncture. These sessions help to gradually prepare you for the natural onset of labor, as well as address stress, anxiety, and physical discomforts.

The first approach is to start acupuncture once weekly from 37 weeks. The second approach is to have acupuncture at or after your due date, at a frequency of one to three times per week. Both approaches are very safe, effective, and help facilitate a more efficient labor. Treatments consist of meeting with your provider and discussing your health and pregnancy, then you will rest with needles in for 30 minutes. These sessions are very comfortable and relaxing
