acupressure to induce labor
probably about as useful as banging your head against the wall or curling into a ball and crying, its keeping me occupied this evening.

YouTube - Acupressure Points for Labor Induction/ leg and foot points

Re: acupressure to induce labor
Are you doing these yourself? The points can be easily missed, and even when hit the effects may not happen for a while. I have an acupuncture appointment in a few hours and have been told it could take up to three treatments for it to do anything and that includes the fact I am now past my due date.

Re: acupressure to induce labor

A friend of mine was right around her due date (a few days before I think) and her mom was giving her a pedicure. She had her mom rub the spot by your heel and within a few hours she was in labor.

Re: acupressure to induce labor
My dh found the spot on my foot/ankle. It hurt so bad when he touched it and would give me an instant contraction - but wouldn't do anything else.

I finally banned him from touching it because he would do it just to torture me. lol

Re: acupressure to induce labor
