Acupuncture Reduces Pain In Labour

A systematic review that examined currently available evidence supporting the use of alternative and complementary therapies for pain management in labour.

It included three trials of acupuncture involving 496 women. These showed a decreased need for pain relief.

The reviewers concluded that acupuncture may be beneficial for the management of pain during labour, but the small number of women studied was a limitation.
