Birth Preparation & Labour Induction with Acupuncture

Helping your body to birth spontaneously
Going into spontaneous labour greatly reduces the chances that you will need medical intervention during your birth. I use Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to help balance your body and prepare it for the birth journey. 

Birth is an inward journey. It is important to make space for to  travel inwards in those last few weeks of pregnancy. Time to collect yourself, rest, replenish and focus on you.
This can be a little tricky once you have multiple children. Booking in a course of birth preparation can facilitate this by providing you with an hour once a week in the last 4-6 weeks of pregnancy to tune in to yourself, relax and replenish your energy, ready for the big marathon of birth. The energetic you can be pre-birth, the more energy will be remaining for breast milk production and managing an infant on returning home with your baby.
Birth preparation acupuncture will also assist you to go into labour at 40 weeks.

As you get closer to your due date treatments become more focused on getting the pelvis, uterus and cervix ready for birth.

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine can prepare the body for birth by:


* Softening the cervix
*Promoting Uterine Contractions
*Increasing energy and blood needed for delivery.
*Harmonising hormones.
*Promoting Milk Production
*Reducing stress and promoting relaxation
*Increasing well-being
