Acupuncture often gets remarkable results in treating nausea, reflux, anxiety, threatened miscarriage, and other complications. It is a calming, nurturing experience for many pregnant mums. As is the massage on the pregnancy cushion, where they can lay on their front up until full-term. (Side is also an option).
Labour induction: Many women come for acupuncture for labour induction. For some it is very effective, for others their baby seems to have its own idea about things. Either way, acupuncture prior to labour has been shown improve the rate of contractions and make the mother more relaxed during birthing process.
Acupuncture During Labour: Kali may be available to attend a labouring mother if needed. Times when this could be helpful are: when the contractions have petered out and the mother is fatiguing, or to help turn a baby in malposition such as posterior.
*For acupuncture during labour, call out fee is $100, then $50 per hour thereafter
