Acupuncture for Labour Induction
is an artificial method of inducing post-term babies, but it is enjoying increasing popularity as women with uncomplicated pregnancies seek to avoid conventional medical induction, imposition of medical timeframes, and the cascade of interventions that often follow. While acupuncture is very effective, it works according to a different, less-aggressive philosophy to Western Medicine and therefore a specific timeframe for outcome can be difficult to guarantee.
Acupuncture induction is safe and effective and works harmoniously with the delicate hormonal balance of pregnancy to promote labour. It is difficult to comment on what you may reasonably expect after an acupuncture induction treatment as no two pregnancies are ever the same and no two women come to treatment at the same stage of their pregnancy. It is advisable for you to commence daily acupuncture induction treatment from at least 4 days prior to your medically scheduled induction. This ensures reasonable opportunity for the treatment to take full effect. You may experience signs of pre-labour rumblings – such as cramping lower back pain, mild downward bearing sensation or diffuse abdominal tightening – it is highly likely that you will progress into labour post treatment. While still an artificial method, the use of TCM to induce labour is a safe, natural, viable alternative to Western medical induction for post-term babies and well worth expectant mothers considering should you wish to avoid the possibility of medical induction. It might also be considered in cases of spurious labour or ruptured membranes with non-progressive labour. It is crucial, however, that you be advised to allow adequate time for treatment to take effect.
