Pre-Birth Acupuncture

Pre-Birth Acupuncture consists of a weekly Acupuncture session from 36-37 weeks until the time of birth. These treatments are very beneficial as they prepare the woman’s body for birth and so facilitate a smoother and more harmonious birthing experience. Acupuncture works by balancing the hormones, soothing the sympathetic nervous system, and increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs. These actions help to ripen the cervix, calm the mind, and increase energy, thus preparing the body and mind for a smoother labour and birth.

The following results are shown from studies using Pre-Birth Acupuncture :Kerry Relaxation Acupuncture

  • shorter duration of labour
  • 35% reduction in medical induction
  • 32% lower caesarean rates
  • 31% reduction in requests for epidurals (Research)

Pre-Birth Acupuncture is also an ideal way to treat any other pregnancy conditions you may be experiencing such as heartburn or back pain.

Most women find Pre-Birth Acupuncture very relaxing and so is an excellent way to take time out for yourself, before the birth of your little one.
