I have never heard of it.

Here is an article on it for those who cannot view the OPs link.

Intradermal Water Blocks

Intradermal Water Blocks
"Intradermal water blocks or sterile water blocks are tiny injections of sterile water injected into the top layer of skin. The injections are given in exact locations on the back. These injections contain no medicine, but they generally relieve back pain for about an hour. This procedure only works for back labor, not for pain and pressure associated with contractions.

There are no side effects to this procedure, other than stinging at the site of injection for about 30 seconds. This is a relatively new form of pain relief and is not performed in all hospitals. This procedure is very popular for women hoping for a natural childbirth who need a little bit of help with back labor. "
