Moxibustion is a therapy from Traditional Chinese medicine that involves burning moxa (which is the herb mugwort) to direct the heat from it toward/near specific acupuncture points on the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, when these points are stimulated by moxibustion, it can strengthen blood flow & prompt the release of certain hormones. The moxibustion procedure to turn breech babies uses moxa on an acupuncture point on the little toe. A recent article in Parents magazine states, ” The traditional Chinese practice of moxibustion is one of the world’s oldest techniques for turning a breech baby—and OB-GYNs still prescribe it today.”
CAUTION: Doing Moxibustion is a fire hazard, treat it as such. Use in a well ventilated area. Keep away from flammable items.
CAUTION: Do NOT touch yourself with the part of the moxa stick that is burning, it will burn you & possibly leave a scar.
CAUTION: Make sure the moxa stick is fully extinguished after use & store moxa stick on a non-flammable surface & away from flammable items.

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:
If you are in the weeks leading up to your due date, we 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.
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.
Acupuncture is also really good at relieving common post partum symptoms like
Acupuncture for induction of labour in Clane, County Kildare
Acupuncture for induction of labour in Dunboyne, County Meath
Acupuncture for induction of labour in Dublin City Centre
We are open for phone consultations for acupuncture for breech baby enquiries-because the treatment to turn a breech baby uses moxa sticks & we can post the moxa sticks & instructions to you. You can do the moxibustion for breech baby at home. Just email us and we will phone you back straight away firstname.lastname@example.org

Congratulations! You’re now pregnant! You finally have the result you want, but now more worries you never even anticipated have crept in. So, now that you are pregnant, what should you do? What does a growing baby need? And what do you require? You may be feeling fine, no different than usual. Or you may be nauseous, have sore breasts, be ravenously hungry, feel constipated or any number of things. One thing for sure, you know that you want to stay pregnant. We use acupuncture to treat our newly pregnant fertility patients. Acupuncture adds to a healthy first trimester by helping to support the pregnancy as well as alleviate any uncomfortable symptoms. You should schedule yourself for a prenatal appointment with your doctor. In the meantime, to ensure a healthy first trimester, there are two pregnancy basics you should be aware of: Nutrition and exercise.
In the book, The Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year, it states that, “During pregnancy you create the cells needed for two extra pounds of uterine muscle, the nerves, bones, organs, muscles, glands, and skin of your foetus, several pounds of amniotic fluid, a placenta and a fifty percent increase in your blood volume. In addition, you’ll replace many extra kidney and liver cells to process the waste of two beings instead of one.” Yes, that’s a lot of raw materials needed for this building project. You can purchase that book here.
Eating well for a healthy first trimester means increasing your consumption of many nutrients in pregnancy, which can be very simple. Start by having home cooked meals and snacks made with fresh, whole foods, that include a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, moderate amounts of lean meats and cold water fish, full fat dairy products, nuts, seeds and healthy fats. Eating clean also means limiting processed foods, added sugar and saturated fats. Getting a juicer is a quick and easy way to get a lot of nutrients from fruits and vegetables. You will want your child to have home cooked meals and healthy snacks, so this is a great time to lay down some healthy habits.
A good rule of thumb is that most exercise you were doing before you got pregnant is ok to continue now that you are pregnant. Walking is a great form of exercise that is gentle and just right for a healthy first trimester. I always suggest my clients look into pregnancy yoga as well.
Speak to your doctor if you wish to start a new exercise routine or have concerns about continuing the routine you already have.
Always consult your doctor for medical advice.
