Acupuncture for  LabourUse Of Acupuncture In Labour

In a normal and uneventful pregnancy, acupuncture is a safe practice to help to initiate the spontaneous onset of labour.  However the skill and experience of the practitioner is of paramount importance.
Randomized studies have shown that the treatment can reduce the need for medical or surgical intervention.

The Benefits Of Acupuncture In Labour

  • Removes anxiety, and harmonizes the mind and the body. Through her practice Toni believes this has proved to reduce the physiological pain as the labour is established.

  • Reduces fluid retention which can hinder the onset and progress of labour.

  • Influences the role of the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, by producing oxytocin which gently enhances uterine action, and helps to initiate labour.

Toni generally provides treatment in and around 38/41 weeks gestation.

She surely did, and I can’t thank her enough I went into labour 36 hours later after the third session and had my little princess with no medical intervention." Kate
