Robinson A., 2005. Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand

A master’s thesis exploring and describing women’s experiences of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture treatment for threatened preterm labour (Robinson A, 2005), studied 5 women at high risk of having a preterm birth. Two of these women had had hospital admissions for preterm labour at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

One other had had two previous babies die at 24 and 26 weeks. The five women had acupuncture regularly throughout their pregnancies and all achieved full-term births.
