Acupuncture for Labor Induction for Healthy Mom and Baby


Acupuncture helps a natural labor induction before you go to any medical induction of labor to initiate labor artificially, which usually involves the use of prostaglandins and possibly oxytocin or even further a caesarean delivery.

If you are nearing the due, but you have no contraction whatsoever, even you passed the due, still no signs of baby coming out, you really have to think about ‘Acupuncture Induction: this is very natural, non-invasive, just stimulating some of traditional acupuncture points related to the uterus and also the meridians running near or around the uterus and pelvic region and at times I have the pregnant women for acupuncture induction referred by western doctors.

We are very confident to offer the natural acupuncture induction, which can also help your labor and delivery easy and smooth, good for the mom and baby as well.

And also below is the article titled, “Babies’ First Germs Depend On Type Of Birth” by Chao Deng NPR Health Blog, telling us the natural cervical delivery is the better for the healthy baby.

Babies start their lives with a clean slate. But it doesn’t last long.
Newborns delivered vaginally get a healthy dose of the Lactobacillus bacteria.
All sorts of bacteria move right in at birth. And how a baby is delivered — vaginally or by Cesarean section — can make all the difference in what kinds of bugs start calling the newborn home.
Researchers who tested 10 babies found those born vaginally tended to get colonized by bacteria such as Lactobacillus from the mother’s vaginal canal. C-section babies, however, got more Staphylococcus, a type of microbe usually found on the skin and one that sometimes causes nasty infections.

The results were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Microbiologist Maria Dominquez-Bello tells Shots the bacteria on C-section babies may come from the first person to handle the baby.
Without the exposure to vaginal bacteria from a natural birth, C-section babies may be more at risk of getting infections and even asthma. As the researchers note, the majority of antibiotic-resistant skin infections occur in infants born by C-section.

Dominquez-Bello says that doctors might be able to reduce those bacterial risks by wrapping C-section babies in gauze that’s been exposed to the mother’s vaginal bacteria. It may be worth a look considering that C-section births are at a record high
