A trained and experienced birthing acupuncturist, or acu-doula, can support you through all or part of the process of childbirth
Using acupuncture as part of your pregnancy care and birth plan can reduce the need for medical intervention in childbirth. Your obstetric acupuncturist or acu-doula can teach birthing partners massage and acupressure to use before and during labour.
Childbirth is a normal bodily function but an extraordinary life experience
One of the gifts of acupuncture is its ability to work with your body: regulating and balancing systems.
As obstetric acupuncturists, members of our team are able to use acupuncture to assist you through your birth, helping you to manage the contractions and to maintain your energy and focus. By supporting you, and your partner, through the stages of childbirth we can help you to achieve a positive, powerful birth experience.
If you are thinking about finding an acu-doula to attend your birth, for all or for part of it, feel free to call us to talk it through or to book some energising pre-birth treatments during the last month of your term.
