Using natural medicines and treatments to induce, or augment a slowly progressing labour, is an effective means to potentially avoid cesarean birth (c-section), and experience less pain than in a Pitocin® (synthetic oxytocin)-induced labour.
Our Natural Labour Induction + Augmentation program includes:
- 60-minute appointment for assessment and an acupuncture treatment and guidance on lifestyle interventions for inducing or augmenting labour
- Prescription for safe botanical (herbal) and homeopathic medicine options
Natural Labour Induction + Augmentation programs at Toronto Centre for Naturopathic Medicine are covered by most extended healthcare plans.
