Acupuncture to ease labour pains

edited July 2016 in Birth
Have any of you got experience with acupuncture before giving birth to ease the labour pains and shorten the time of labour? Do you believe it works?

I have had a few sessions of acupuncture before giving birth to shorten the time of labour and to ease the pain while in labour as I did not have any pain relief. Obviously since this was my first baby and every birth is different anyways I do not know if it really worked. All I can say is that my labour was very quick and the pain was manageable without any gas and air or an epidural.



  • I will have to look into this. I know acupressure has been recommended by the midwife as a thing they will do to help with labour but I'm not sure how you would have this work with labour, I guess you just go a bit before you are due?
