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 contractions, but few and far between. 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 induced labor. It’s natural, painless, and safer than chemical induction.
How It Works
When you come in for an induced labor treatment we bring you to a treatment room and set you up in a comfortable position. Some women can lie comfortably on their backs, other prefer their sides, and some wish to sit in a chair. We then conduct a brief intake, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and explain how the treatment will work.
We use hair thin needles that are sterile and single-use. The location of the needles is of utmost importance. The points we use all have the effect of stimulating the cervix and uterine contractions. It is very important for you to know that our acupuncture treatment will never force you into labor. If your body is not ready for labor the acupuncture will not override it.
However, as is the case most of the time, your body will be ready for labor. In these cases acupuncture will prompt and encourage your body into labor in a gentle, natural way. The Chinese have been refining this process over the last two thousand years.
What To Expect
After the treatment you will go home, eat a good meal high in protein, and see what your body does. You should be prepared to head to the hospital right away, if your labor becomes strong. The treatment helps induce labor, and at the same time helps strengthen your body for the upcoming labor. It is a safe, comfortable, nourishing experience.

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.
