We now have an Acupuncture clinic at Pomegranate on Thursdays. You can receive expert care from our Registered Acupuncturist, Courtney Morris, who is able to treat many discomforts and ailments in pregnancy as well as help promote better health for you and your baby. From treating nausea in early in pregnancy, to preparing your body for birth in the final weeks including inducing labor, acupuncture is used to treat a long list of issues.
A study has shown that having labour preparation acupuncture weekly from 36 weeks until labour starts can have a 35% reduction of the number of inductions for women overall, and for first pregnancies this was reduced by 43% . There was a 31% reduction in epidural rate and a 32% reduction in caesarean sections. The acupuncture treats for any imbalances in the organ systems according to Chinese medicine, as well as help the baby to engage if need be, start to ripen the cervix, relax muscles and tendons and calm the mind.
