She is very knowledgeable and exactly knows what is best to do. She also knows what specific acupuncture points are contraindicated during pregnancy.

So, What are the forbidden acupuncture points in pregnancy? 

There are certain points contraindicated during pregnancy up to 38 weeks into the pregnancy. Because they have the potential to stimulate uterine contractions. In fact, we needle these same points as the due date approaches. Because they offer a powerful solution to induce labour naturally.



The benefits are both physical, mental and emotional.

  • an immediate Relief from nausea and vomiting

  • a better sleep pattern and quality of sleep

Acupuncture for labour induction is a specialised form of therapy we offer to women at 38 weeks of pregnancy and beyond. It focuses on helping pregnant women prepare the body for childbirth, promoting uterine contractions and encouraging natural labour induction.


We use a combination of specific pregnancy acupuncture points that can help to induce natural labour, as well as reduce birth time & and labour pain.​ 



What is the scientific evidence supporting the value of acupuncture during pregnancy?

There are numerous studies demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture in managing a wide range of symptoms experienced by expecting mothers.

For example, in this study, "Treating Pain in Pregnancy with Acupuncture:" researchers found that around 89% of expecting mothers, reported clinically meaningful symptom pain reduction.

Prenatal acupuncture seems to improve the birth experience too, by reducing the need for medication and labor duration.
