8 Ways to Speed Up Labor
Pressure points are points along the body that when pressure is applied they can relieve stress or pain, or even stimulate contractions. This may sound a little far-fetched, but many women have tried pressing on one of two pressure points, the webbing between your thumb and fingers and the second pressure point is just above the ankle, to bring on contractions. It actually does cause contractions; however, the contractions may fizzle out once you stop applying pressure. If you are already having contractions though, this is a good way to strengthen them or keep them coming.
