As Traditional acupuncturists, we believe that labour should be a natural process in which the progression is directed by the flow of energy in the mother’s body. Ideally childbirth should move smoothly from one stage to another. This does not mean that childbirth is painless, but that the contractions are efficient, so that you do not become exhausted and can remain calm and in control. We believe that you should enter a state in which you can focus totally on what is happening in your body, supported by birth attendants and free from distractions.
ACT Berkshire practitioners offering childbirth support do this by coaching you through points that you and your partner can used during labour.
Some practitioners also offer to attend your birth for acupuncture support throughout labour. Practitioners who attend childbirths have an flower icon ✿ next to their name on the ACT Berkshire Team page.
