Acupuncture for labor pain

Acupuncture for labor pain

The cables seen around the patient’s leg connect the needles to the electro acupuncture device.  The acupuncture needles are inserted near the ankle (SP6 point) and down between the first and second toes (LV3 point).  Although electro acupuncture does not eliminate the labor pain completely, it helps reduce it and create a more pleasant birth experience.
