Acupuncture for labour induction reviews
"I visited Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto when we were trying for our first child. After a few sessions and introduction to Chinese medicine, I fell pregnant in a short space of time. I am in no doubt that both acupuncture and the Chinese medicine were a supporting factor in me conceiving. Thought out my pregnancy, I visited Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto for baby brain, tiredness and to help me relax, all of which he assisted with. Towards the end of my pregnancy term, I asked Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto to help bring on the labour as I did not was to be induced in the hospital and help with labour pains. My acupuncture appointment was at 7pm, my waters broke at 1am that night and I was in labour for 58 mins. I safely delivered a baby boy. I defiantly feel he help to reduce the pain too, as I felt ready to give birth all over again the next day (which I am told is a very rare and bold statement). Another quality that impressed me, was how calming, friendly yet professional he was. If we were to try to conceive again, I doubt I would attempt to go through the process without Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto acupuncture treatment. I would highly recommend him."

"I contacted Attilio as I was fast approaching my baby's due date and wanted to try acupuncture for labour induction. I had never had acupuncture before, but it's something that seemed completely safe as there are no chemicals involved and no chance of harming my baby. Attilio replied to my enquiry almost immediately. The session was incredibly relaxing. My husband was with me and Attilio took the time to teach him how to massage certain points on my body for relaxation (especially during labour), and gave us hand-outs on pressure points. We were advised that acupuncture for labour induction might take a couple of days to work, and if not, that we may have to come back for another session. Amazingly, my contractions kicked in later that same day! My beautiful, healthy baby boy was born in the early hours of the next day. I highly recommend Attilio for any kind of acupuncture treatment; he is polite, considerate and has a calming influence. I was prepared for the labour induction not to work and just pleased that I had such a relaxing acupuncture experience. I'm so happy it did work, and I didn't have to wait any longer to meet my son!"

"Attilio made the acupuncture sessions relaxing and it didn't hurt at all having the needles inserted or removed. I was also given dietary and lifestyle advice to compliment the acupuncture. The treatment worked very well for me and i felt my energy increase and when i rested i felt more energised (rather than more tired as i did before). I was so impressed with how well acupuncture had worked for me, i decided to have pre-birth acupuncture to help reduce the likelihood of requiring interventions during labour (such as a c-section, etc). I went into labour naturally 11 days before my due date and i had an active labour (i did a lot of walking and sitting on my birthing ball). The only pain relief i needed was gas and air and the 2nd phase of labour (the pushing bit) was only 30 minutes, which is very short for a first labour apparently. I was so impressed with acupuncture thatI will definitely use it again and if you are considering acupuncture i would recommend treatment with Attilio."
