Pregnancy and Labor
Acupuncture provides a safe, drug free way to treat many of the common complaints during pregnancy including nausea, headaches, back pain and fatigue. Acupuncture can also help with breech presentation.
Pre-Labor Acupuncture Package
Acupuncture treatments as part of a routine pre-labor protocol have been shown to shorten the duration of labor and reduce c-sections and other interventions when women receive regular pre-labor treatments beginning at 36 weeks. Having weekly pre-labor treatments can help you go into labor “on time” and avoid medical inductions.
Acupuncture During Labor
Acupuncture and acupressure can be helpful during labor to manage pain and keep labor progressing smoothly. Partners are welcome to attend a pre-birth labor acupuncture session to help learn acupressure techniques to be used before and during labor.
