Pre-labour acupuncture is a great way to help with cervical ripening and helping the body get ready for labour. This type of acupuncture is associated with better birth outcomes such as shorter labour times and improved labour progress. Typically, this type of acupuncture is started at week 36 or 37 and continued until labour starts.
If you're overdue, there are naturopathic ways to help move things along.
And don't forget: Dr. Anne is also a birth doula and loves supporting women during one of the most memorable experiences of their lives!
