Abstract: Protocol was carried out on 98 patients who were divided into three
groups selected as (one control group, two "placebo" group, and three
treated with acupuncture). This protocol showed that it was possible to
improve cervical maturation if acupuncture sessions were carried out at the
beginning of the 9th month. The Bishop scores in the three groups after 10
days interval show that there was a significant progression of 2.61 points
in the group treated with acupuncture as against only 0.89 and 1.08 in the
placebo and control groups.
