Preparing for Labour with Acupuncture:
This is recommended from week 37 – once a week. This will help soften and relax the cervix and to provide further blood and energy flow to the area and to help the babies position to be optimal. It also helps to prepare the woman’s body for birth as it can help support endorphin release, which are pain relieving hormones that calm the mind/body near the end of a pregnancy.
60 mins $145
Induction with Acupuncture:
This can be commenced from week 40. At this time it is recommended to have these treatments closer together to give a stronger sensation for cervical softening.
It can also help to shorten the time between the woman’s expected due date and the actual time of delivery.
