Acupuncture for Induction of Labour

Acupuncture for the induction of labour is a procedure I have been doing every week for nearly 20 years. Helping women go into labour gently, safely & naturally is an honour & a joy. 

In light of Covid 19 & the stay at home order, there is increased interest in Acupuncture for induction of labour treatments.  Most people want to avoid hospitals at the moment & for pregnant women even more than ever I am hearing that they want the least amount of interventions & to avoid the surgery of a C-section.  Acupuncture is great for helping to induce labour. If you can’t get acupuncture then acupressure to induce labour is something you can do yourself at home. I am converting my guide, “The Essential Acupressure Guide: Acupressure to Induce labour Naturally” to a more concise easy to print version & I will be making available for free here, so please do check back. .

When it comes to doing Acupuncture for the induction of labour treatments, the first priority is always the health & safety of you & your baby.

To receive acupuncture to induce labour you must:

  1. have reached your due date or
  2. are past your due date.

If you are in the weeks leading up to your due date, pregnant womanwe can utilise pre-birth/pre-labour acupuncture to help you.  We do not want to force baby out ahead of time.

We are all about using Acupuncture to induce labour naturally, safely & gently for both you & your baby. Our goal is to help you bring on labour naturally.

We are expertly trained & highly experienced in using acupuncture to induce labour.  As mentioned this is a procedure we have been doing every week for nearly 20 years.

Acupuncture for Labour Induction Success

How quickly the acupuncture starts labour varies from woman to woman. It depends on individiual factors such as whether it is your first child, are you one day over your due date or nearly 2 weeks over your due date?  I am not a fan of acupuncturists who post success rate numbers because there is no way to check if they are accurate, there is NO governing body that checks the validity of claims people make. Most of the women who come to me are by word of mouth reputation-a good friend they trust recommends me to them.  The cost is 60 euro, but if you need more than one treatment in a week, there is no additional cost (only 60 euro no matter how many times you come in during a week). We also give you receipts to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

Post Partum

Acupuncture is also really good at relieving common post partum symptoms like

  1. night sweats &
  2. Haemorrhoids, also known as piles (painful swellings containing enlarged blood vessels that are found inside or around the bum) These piles can be very common after all the pushing from giving birth, but acupuncture is very good at relieving them:)
