World Health Organisation recommends acupuncture in childbirth:
“In childbirth, acupuncture analgesia is useful for relieving labour pain and can significantly reduce the duration of labour.
In the case of weakened uterine contractions, acupuncture increases the activity of the uterus. In addition, the avoidance of narcotics is advantageous for newborn infants.”
“Acupuncture treatment is safe if it is performed properly by a well-trained practitioner. Unlike many drugs, it is non-toxic, and adverse reactions are minimal.”
The latest studies confirm the WHO document findings for the use of acupuncture in pregnancy and labor.
The latest Conchrane review (C.Smith 2017) found that when acupuncture was done correctly (electroacupuncture), it helped to soften the cervix and reduced the duration of labour.
They also found that electroacupuncture was more effective for the outcomes caesarean section, and instrumental vaginal and the spontaneous vaginal birth. It decreased the rate of caesarean sections and increased the rate of spontaneous vaginal birth.
