Today at Seaman Chiropractic Center in Chicago, I will be using acupuncture to induce labor on a patient who is ready to give birth. Did you know acupuncture is very successful for inducing labor? Having a licensed chiropractor perform acupuncture to induce labor avoids the hospital's insistence on a timetable and giving the expectant mother Pitosin to induce or speed up labor. As a Chicago chiropractor who is also a trained acupuncturist, I have been treating patients with acupuncture for 25 years. Pitosin is an artificial version of the body's hormone Oxytocin. There can be a few unfavorable results when the drug Pitosin is used. The drug may stop muscle contractions or it may be the cause of too many contractions. It may even cause contractions to go on for too long. Pitsosin can be the cause of pain and suffering for the unborn child-fetal distress. In spontaneous labors, the mother naturally makes Oxytocin and that triggers the onset and progress of labor. However Pitocin is not the only drug received by women whose labor is being induced or sped up. The use of Pitosin requires the mother be given IV fluids, have continuous electrical fetal monitoring due to the chance of fetal distress and remain sedentary in the hospital bed while connected to this equipment. This increases the severity of contractions and that leads to narcotics and painkillers given at the dosage for an adult. These drugs are secondarily transferred to the child. Get help to avoid these risks. Seek natural solutions for your unborn child. Arrange an appointment today.
