When to go to hospital

Whether or not the mother intends to have a hospital or home delivery, she will be most at ease during the first part of labour at home, in a familiar environment where she can make herself most comfortable.

If the mother is going into hospital, the best guide as to when to go there will be the intensity, strength and duration of the contractions. Once these are lasting 60 seconds or more, the cervix will be dilating. Acupuncture treatment can be started at once.
