Cervical Ripening

Acupuncture treatments preformed at week 37, 38, 39 and 40 weeks, have been studied and the research indicates that the baby becomes engaged in an anterior position, the cervix softens and dilates, and women go into labour within 4 days of their due date. These acupuncture treatnents are a gentle yet effective way of preparing your body for labour, but does not force the baby to come out if they are not ready too.
