Do Acupuncture for the last four weeks of pregnancy

Do Acupuncture for the last four weeks of pregnancy

Having acupuncture in the last four weeks of pregnancy, before you go into labour, is one of the best all round body preps that you can do for yourself and your baby.

Why is this so?...

Acupuncture helps your blood and qi to flow. When this occurs your state changes allowing your body to deeply relax and your labour process to begin naturally around your forty weeks.

It boosts your energy levels, especially if you have been waking up through the night. Sleepless nights can leave you drained, the last thing that you want before giving birth.

The relaxed state that the sessions create also gives the woman amazing clarity and the ability to see how she wants to give birth.

Research has also shown that these four weeks of treatment helps ensure a shorter labour, but best of all, less intervention during the birthing process.

These four weeks are highly beneficial to the women who previously may have had a bad experience with their previous labour. Why? Because it calms and builds confidence giving a sense of clarity and increased energy. An empowered woman is ready to give birth her way.

So here at Studio Qi on the Gold Coast, we believe that doing "the last four weeks" before you give birth will give you and your baby the best start possible to your birthing journey.

Best Tabitha
