Pre Birth Acupuncture
From 36 weeks gestation, acupuncture may benefit you by supporting your body’s natural processes to birth your baby. Traditional medicine techniques, acupuncture and moxibustion have been used in midwifery for thousands of years; and may improve softening of the cervix, pelvis and ligaments; regulate hormones and descend your energies to lead you towards a labour and birth.

Acupressure Points For Labour
In the final weeks of pregnancy, we offer to help couples prepare for labour by teaching partners how to locate and use acupressure points that have been shown to be beneficial for relief of discomfort and for symptoms during labour.

In Japan, gestation is considered to be 42 weeks. In the West, women are encouraged to have their babies at 40 weeks which doesn’t always happen… Acupuncture is a gentle way that may encourage babies to arrive naturally.
Congratulations… now your precious baby has arrived!
Acupuncture may help you to build your energies after labour, to shorten your recovery time, and may help to bring your body back into shape so you can enjoy motherhood.
Our acupuncturists have a particular interest working with new mums to restore the body’s balance after labour and to prevent symptoms such as fevers, insomnia, emotional imbalance, and breastfeeding concerns such as mastitis.
Nutritional consultations provide you with the herbal medicine, supplementation and dietary advice to keep you and baby well nourished and free of disharmony.
