A small observation study of the routine practice of 14 midwifes over a four month period indicated that acupuncture treatment before labour appeared to be beneficial in reducing medical intervention, compared to women receiving similar midwifery care without acupuncture. A follow-up statistical analysis showed significant p values (<0.0085) for “an increased rate of spontaneous deliveriesfor first time and subsequent mothers and decreasing caesarean section for combined first time and subsequent mother.”
Acupuncture treatment to prepare women for an efficient labour is ideally commenced before an induction is required although this may not always be possible. When a woman presents for an acupuncture induction however, whether medical intervention is planned for the next day or the following week, treatment can still be aimed at promoting natural physiological labour.

"Two days away from the dreaded induction I didn’t think it would be possible to relax. I was wrong. Thank you so much for the chance to calm my mind and focus on what’s important, me and baba!"
