Acupuncture for Labor
Acupuncture During Birth
A woman’s body is perfectly capable of birthing a baby all on its own without any intervention, but the small percent of women who may need intervention can use acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for natural assistance. Some of these needs might be:
- Labor Discomfort
- Difficult Labor
Acupuncture is a fantastic alternative to Pitocin and other medications for labor augmentation. It also has analgesic qualities and the ability to help calm a birthing mother. Crystal has many years of experience working with midwives and obstetric physicians in hospital, birth center or homebirth settings to help with these challenges. Prolonged labor or back labor can be resolved very quickly with acupuncture and can help birthing mothers avoid other interventions.
Note: These services are available only if Crystal has the capability of attending. If you wish for her to guarantee her availability, you will be required to sign Doula contracts and different fees apply. For more information on Doula Services please click here.
