Promotion of Labor
Acupuncture can be used to naturally promote labor in place of drugs, which force the body into labor, or used to avoid a C-section. Two weeks prior to the due date, acupuncture can begin by helping the body relax, soften muscles, and prepare for labor. After the due date has passed, acupuncture can be used more aggressively to promote labor. Using acupuncture during pregnancy also leads to a smoother and quicker labor.
Please note: acupuncture will not be performed on a pregnant patient to promote labor without written approval from the patient’s obstetrician.
