Denver Acupuncture Labor Induction Treatment Works Best
Your due date has come and gone and you’re not dilating. There are contractions, but few and far between. Your doctor has told you she wants to induce labor if nothing changes in the next five days. You’re not happy. This is the perfect time to use acupuncture for induced labor. It’s natural, painless, and safer than chemical induction.
Denver Acupuncture Labor Induction Treatment – How It Works
When you come in for an induced labor treatment we bring you to a treatment room and set you up in a comfortable position. Some women can lie comfortably on their backs, other prefer their sides, and some wish to sit in a chair. We then conduct a brief intake, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and explain how the treatment will work.
We use hair thin needles that are sterile and single-use. The location of the needles is of utmost importance. The points we use all have the effect of stimulating the cervix and uterine contractions. It is very important for you to know that our acupuncture treatment will never force you into labor. If your body is not ready for labor the acupuncture will not override it. However, as is the case most of the time, your body will be ready for labor. In these cases acupuncture will prompt and encourage your body into labor in a gentle, natural way. The Chinese have been refining this process over the last two thousand years.
Denver Acupuncture Labor Induction Treatment – What To Expect
After the treatment you will go home, eat a good meal high in protein, and see what your body does. You should be prepared to head to the hospital right away, if your labor becomes strong. The treatment helps induce labor, and at the same time helps strengthen your body for the upcoming labor. It is a safe, comfortable, nourishing experience.
