Acupuncture Pre-birth treatments
Acupuncture is one of the least invasive choices of drug free treatment offered to pregnant women. It is especially recommended from 37 weeks of pregnancy to help mothers prepare for labour. Studies have shown that women receiving weekly pre-birth acupuncture treatments consistently experienced efficient labours, reduction in the length of labour and medical intervention. One such study in 2004 on 169 New Zealand women demonstrated a 43% reduction in the number of inductions for first-time mothers; 31% reduction in epidural rates; 32% reduction in emergency caesarean delivery; and a 9% increase in normal vaginal birth.
