For women who are fortunate enough to not suffer with any discomforts during their pregnancy, a short course of pre-birth acupuncture treatment may be all they need to help promote their chances of an uneventful labour and delivery.
Weekly treatments from 35/36 weeks leading up to the due date can help to prepare the body for active and effective labour and help to develop optimal positioning of the baby in the womb. This programme is so effective that it is often carried out as routine practice in countries such as Germany and New Zealand.
A practical and therefore popular choice is also for pregnant women and a partner to be taught acupressure for pain relief during labour.
