How To Prepare For Birth With Acupuncture

Dec 23, 2021 | Pregnancy & Birth

At Angea, we believe every woman should have the power to write their birth story. Of course, mother nature has her own vision for your birth, and there is strength in the submission to her power, however, surrounding yourself with a supportive team can set you up for an empowered birth experience.
The lead up to birth can be an overwhelming orchestra of emotions, from excitement and anticipation to, in some cases, downright fear.

Pre-Birth Treatment
Your midwife may recommend acupuncture for induction during your final weeks of pregnancy. We recommend commencing acupuncture for induction 4 weeks prior to your due date. We gently prepare your body for birth by increasing blood flow to the pelvic floor and encouraging your body’s natural birthing physiology of hormones.

The ‘induction’ aka pre birth treatment is an opportunity for you to delve deep into your connection with bubs as the acupuncture stimulates your relaxation response. Our guided meditations during your session allow you to enter a state of flow and deep relaxation. 

This is a time for you to relax and nest into the final weeks of pregnancy. Your body will be experiencing shifts during this time, and with the support of our practitioners, we ensure you’re able to flow with these shifts with ease.

We recommend weekly acupuncture sessions from 36 weeks onwards.

We would love to hear your experience of pre-birth acupuncture!
