Acupuncture and Child Birth
At Auckland Acupuncture Centre we specialise in treating all conditions before during and after pregnancy.
Labour Preparation / Induction
Labour preparation with Acupuncture in the final 3 weeks of pregnancy can help to ensure a trouble free childbirth, research has shown that women who had routine prebirth treatment with acupuncture had a reduction in labour time.
Acupuncture is an ideal method to help women prepare themselves to have the most efficient labour possible. We begin prebirth Acupuncture starting at 37 weeks and during this time you will be shown simple Acupressure methods that can be used during labour.
Acupuncture treatment will help prepare a women's body for birth, with an emphasis on preparing the cervix and pelvis for labour, as well as ensuring that the bodies energy levels are adequate to cope with the delivery. The treatment will also help to calm any emotional problems like anxiety or stress leading up to the delivery and any other associated problems that may be present such as insomnia, heartburn, hypertension, incorrectly positioned babies and muscle or joint pain.

Over Due Date - Acupuncture Induction
Acupuncture is a very successful method of natural drug free induction and many midwives will recommend Acupuncture as a option before other methods of intervention are used. Treatments will be given every other day until the women goes into labour.
