Preparing for labour

Many pregnant women like to prepare themselves for labour and for the arrival of their new baby, both emotionally and physically. Midwifes often recommend acupuncture to help this process.

Some studies have been done examining the effect of acupuncture on preparedness for and length of labour, however larger trials are needed to confirm these findings.

Suggested Schedule: 1 treatment per week from week 35 or 36 of pregnancy.
