Are you a mom-to-be? Consider regular acupuncture treatments before your due date. While labor induction using acupuncture on or past the due date has been shown to be effective, often the mother is stressed and worried about being drug induced, and the body isn’t relaxed enough to go into labor. I’d recommend a series of treatments starting at about 36 weeks. That way, any imbalances that could get in the way of labor would be addressed, and the chances of going into labor naturally is higher. Here is a great article–I can completely relate to the author, as I get many calls from desperate moms-to-be at 40+ weeks. http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/birth/birth-plan/using-acupuncture-to-prepare-for-birth-20090812-ehmq.html
