We are so excited about having launched our services this month! We began our promotional and public education efforts at the Toronto Yoga Conference, April 10-12. We saw many familiar faces and met other birth professionals and colleagues (including doulas, chiropractors, naturopaths, yoga instructors, and shiatsu therapists). It is truly heart-warming to know that there are so many therapists from unique backgrounds who are interested in supporting women during their pregnancy and beyond.

Most importantly, we met many moms, dads and parents-to-be who were so excited about our services. We can’t even count how many times someone asked,  “Where were you when I had my baby?” The positive response to our work was simply overwhelming. Many thanks to all who visited our booth and supported Toronto AcuBirthing during our launch at the Yoga Conference.

Toronto AcuBirthing is a new service that is being offered to pregnant, labouring and postpartum women in Toronto. We are a unique service that offers support through the use of acupuncture and acupressure techniques during labour and delivery to help ease your transition from pregnancy to motherhood. We are on call 24/7. Research indicates that acupuncture and acupressure treatment during labour and delivery encourage a more timely and efficient labour, and a reduction in medical interventions.

Let us know if there are specific pregnancy and labour topics that you’d like to hear more about so we can devote future blogs to topics that interest you.
