BIRTH PREP ACUPUNCTURE 

Kat Starbird LAc, has completed advanced training in acupuncture for birth, birth preparation, labor induction and postpartum support, and is passionate about supporting mama's, babes and partner.

As a gentle birth advocate, Kat believes in supporting mother and baby in preparation for birth as well as during birth. Regardless of your birth preferences acupuncture prepares your body for birth. It relaxes, balances and energizes your body, it soften the cervix, releases anxiety, supports position of baby, and stimulates the already occurring cocktail of birthing hormones. It is powerful and supportive. 

We begin with birth preparation acupuncture and only when & if we need to do an induction, do we. If you have a scheduled medical induction we will schedule an acupuncture labor induction 3-5 days prior to that. Until then, there is no need to overstimulate- rather we support the natural process with birth preparation acupuncture.
