Benefits of Acupuncture in Pregnancy and Labour

Welcome to our newest blog all about acupuncture. The wonderful Anna Pino from Natural Harmony has come along to share some great info with us. Whether you are pregnant, have already had your baby or work in maternity care - I’m convinced there is something in there for you.

Many women know what acupuncture is. However, there is so much conflicting information online and being spread in random anecdotes that it may make some mums-to-be hesitant to give it a try. Do you know what acupuncture is? Have you tried it before? Do you know just how many symptoms can be treated with this form of traditional chinese medicine?

I have been amazed by the effects that acupuncture has had on my clients - especially acupuncture sessions to release oxytocin in a slow-to-start labour or a labour with premature rupture of membranes.
