Acupuncture aims to re-balance the body’s internal energy, helping to restore and maintain optimum health. Fine needles are inserted into precise points on the skin, or finger and thumb pressure may be used (acupressure).

Research shows that acupuncture increases the body's "feel good" chemicals and reduces stress hormones. In pregnancy, it can relieve sickness, back and pelvic pain and heartburn. It may be used to turn a breech baby, ease labour pain and increase contractions.

Who teaches our acupuncture courses:

Amanda Redford, a research midwife, is an experienced acupuncturist with a private maternity practice, and has undertaken research on acupuncture for back pain in pregnancy. Amanda is assisted by Annabel Bradburn, a midwife who also practises acupuncture privately, and by Philippa Cox and Denise Tiran, senior midwifery lecturers who have trained in midwifery acupuncture and implemented complementary therapies in the NHS.

Here’s what our past students say:

The acupuncture course is exciting, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. The teachers are experts in their field and have given me the confidence to bring acupuncture to my NHS work and my future private practice. I would encourage any midwife with an interest to go for it! Carol Mc Girr, Ballygawley / Co.Tyrone
