Raleigh Acupuncture Labor Induction Treatment
Watch this video to learn about our labor induction treatment.
Your due date has come and gone, and you’re not dilating. There are only intermittent contractions. Your doctor has told you she wants to induce labor if nothing changes in the next five days. You’re not happy. This is the perfect time to use acupuncture for inducing labor. It’s natural, painless, and safer than chemical induction.
Acupuncture Encourages Labor
The Raleigh Acupuncture labor induction is safe, natural, and relaxing. We conduct a brief intake, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and explain how the treatment will work.
All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. The location of the needles is of utmost importance. The acupoints we use for inducing labor gently stimulate the cervix and promote uterine contractions. However, acupuncture will never force you into labor. A more appropriate name for this treatment should be “labor encouragement”!
In most cases, your body is ready for labor, and acupuncture will be able to prompt your body into labor. The Chinese have been refining the process of inducing labor for the past two thousand years. It’s worked for millions of people, and it can work for you.
What To Expect
After the treatment, you will go home, eat a good high-protein meal, and see what your body does. Be prepared to head to the hospital if your labor becomes strong. The treatment helps induce labor while strengthening your body for the upcoming delivery. It is a safe, comfortable, nourishing experience.
Recent Labor Induction
A few months ago, a woman came to our clinic seeking labor induction. Her due date had passed four days earlier, and her doctor had given her the green light to try acupuncture. They were going to induce her the following week if labor did not start independently. She was not dilated at all and only had intermittent contractions.
The treatment went smoothly, using acupoints on her legs and feet to gently stimulate her cervix and uterus. Afterward, she went home to wait. Six hours later, she reported that contractions began in earnest, and by the following morning, her doctor admitted her into the hospital, where she gave birth early that afternoon.

What our Clients are Saying
I didn’t want to be induced with medicine so I tried acupuncture. It worked like a charm. I don’t like needles, but it was worth it. I wanted a natural childbirth and got it. Thanks Raleigh Acupuncture!
My mom found Raleigh Acupuncture for my sister when she was ready to deliver her baby. She went two times and had her baby, no problems. So when I was due, that’s where we went. It took just one treatment for me! It’s a good thing too because I was ready!!! They treated me real nice and it didn’t hurt. I fell asleep during the treatment.
I had gone to Raleigh Acupuncture for fertility treatments and was successful getting pregnant. So when I passed my due date for delivery I called them to induce labor. It was pretty amazing. I went in, got treated, and just as the treatment ended the contractions really kicked in. We went right to the hospital and I delivered my baby that night. I really trust Raleigh Acupuncture and will continue to go there for my health care needs. They are, in effect, my primary care physicians. They truly take care of me and my family.
