NHS service shows: acupuncture help your birth preparation to normalise birth.

Research has shown that acupuncture may help with labour and delivery. An NHS maternity acupuncture service providing birth preparation acupuncture has assessed its routine hospital maternity annual data from 2014 to 2016 to see what effect it had on labour and delivery outcomes. The data from this service was analysed and women who had birth preparation acupuncture were compared with those who did not receive it.

Results shown that women who received birth preparation acupuncture had more normal births (less surgical births), required less intrapartum analgesia, fewer components of an induction of labour and a reduced length of a hospital stay. The patients highly valued the availability of acupuncture within the maternity service as it enhanced their patient journey. Acupuncture for birth preparation effects include musculoskeletal preparation of the pelvis, cervical ripening, enhancing endogenous oxytocin release, and analgesic properties. This study supports the use of maternity acupuncture in normalising birth outcomes.
