I scheduled an appointment with an acupuncturist for Monday morning to see if maybe he will be successful in getting things started. I've never had acupuncture before but I've always been curious about it, so this will be a good opportunity. It's quite expensive ($150 for first session, $90 each subsequent session) but fortunately my insurance covers it. My mother had it done for shoulder pain and said it was very effective. I'm hoping that in addition to the labour, he can help with my right groin muscle which I think I might have pulled last week!
Has anyone ever tried (or known someone) who has successfully used acupuncture as a way of bringing on labour?
Although I have not used it to bring on labor, I have used it the past and was ok. I have heard it from some that it has about the same effect on bringing on labor as the other self inductions work. You have to be somewhat ripe or ready but not entirely sure.
I hope it works for you and if not then I hope you have successfully treat your groin pain.
