Tick-tock… tick-tock… Still waiting?
Medically induced labour is appealing when you're past your due date. But it increases the need for medical intervention during birth.
Acupuncture is a great way to bring on labour when you're overdue. Make sure you come and see us at least 3 days before your medical induction is planned so the treatment can take effect.
Herbal medicine can be just as effective if acupuncture's not your bag.
Neither of these treatments are as strong as medical induction. If you're baby's not ready to be born then it's unlikely that herbs or acupuncture will be able to shift it. However, both may help to shift blocks within your body, so this natural process can progress as it should.
