Western medicine has many methods for inducing labour – breaking the water, “sweeping” and the use of drugs. While effective, these can sometimes lead to other interventions such as epidurals, episiotomy, or C-section.

Eastern medicine targets certain points on the body that will naturally prepare it for labour. This natural release of hormones creates a gradual onset of labor which can result in a smoother and less painful delivery.
