The London Acupuncturist's Birth Well Package
This package pulls together my specialist training in pregnancy & birth to support the needs of the mother-to-be (and baby) in the final weeks of pregnancy. Treatment in these final weeks of pregnancy aims to encourage the optimal conditions for a spontaneous and effective labour, as. well as physical and emotional support at this special moment in time. The package includes:
- weekly pre-birth acupuncture from 35 weeks, tailored to the individual
- an extended session to share acupressure techniques for use in labour with birth partners + a guide to acupressure in labour or the LOVE YOUR LABOUR materials
- more frequently scheduled sessions if required (e.g. if post due date and induction is being discussed)
- a beautifully packaged Mother Roasting Kit to use for post-partum recovery (worth £25)
Created to nurture, nourish and restore the package is worth over £500 and beneficial even if a c-section is scheduled. Part refund offered if baby is delivered before 39 weeks.
Please include relevant contact details when you place your order.
I honestly feel like she can perform magic with her needles - 3 days before my induction I was so not remotely ready for labour that my midwife couldn’t do a sweep, the next day I saw Claire for a session and when I went in for my induction as planned I was already nearly 2cm dilated.
The acupressure techniques Claire taught me where incredible during labour, I was a little sceptical that something so simple could make much impact, but it was honestly a god send at managing pain and helped me stay more calm and in control as the labour progressed.
The London Acupuncturist Birth Well Package is a wonderful gift for any mum-to-be, whether from a partner, friend or even the mama herself. It includes:
Weekly pre-birth acupuncture sessions from 36 weeks. Weekly acupuncture sessions are tailored to prepare the body for labour, encouraging a healthy ripening of the cervix, with research showing this can reduce the duration of labour in first time mothers by approximately 90 minutes. Tiredness, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, heartburn, carpal tunnel, swelling of hands and feet, and other pregnancy related conditions that are common at this stage of pregnancy can also be treated.
A guide to acupressure in labour. This visual guide details the best acupressure points to use in labour, when to use them, and how to find them. Partners can be invited to one of the pre-birth sessions to help them feel confident about locating and using these acupressure points.
Additional ‘induction’ acupuncture sessions if required. A stronger treatment to really get the Qi moving and support spontaneous labour, this treatment can be offered in conjunction with cervical sweeps and other induction protocols.
Breech moxibustion treatment if required, including provision of moxa sticks for use at home.
A Mother Roasting Kit to use post-birth to aid recovery. Mother roasting is a tradition found in many cultures across the world, a series of rituals that celebrate and nourish the energy of the mother post birth. Mother warming is a one off treatment that can be done at home, used to energise a new mum and aid her recovery. Packaged in a gift box, the mother warming kit includes instructions for use, a moxa stick for the treatment, a special recipe for Junie’s Post Partum Power Soup, and guidance on when mother warming is contraindicated.
