I first came to acupuncture to get a jump start on labor, but the treatments became so much more to me. I didn’t realize they were going to have such an awesome affect on me! I have always been scared of labor/delivery, especially since there were a few glitches the first time around.
When my sister-in law-came to watch my son so we could go to the hospital, she told me I looked so calm. I told her it was due to the acupuncture! I have to be honest and say that I think my centered & balanced state in prep for labor/delivery was all due to the acupuncture.
That said, the lead up was like clockwork. I awoke to a huge contraction and leaking water at 2:10 a.m., the contractions were two minutes apart from the get go. We got to BCH by about 3:30, got checked at 4 a.m., and I was already at 6 cm dilated! She was delivered at 5:54 a.m. — completely medication free!
I’m making that sound pretty darn good and it really was — completely fast and furious! It took me about a day and a half to even be able to sleep I was so pumped about the awesome delivery.
Thank you ACOB!!!!! It was a great experience!
