Just curious..

I had my first session last night, it was just a basic toning & prep session, nothing to trigger labor.. But Around 38 weeks I'm going in for the induction treatment (which my midwife okay'd - just no earlier then 38 weeks) & I'm curious if one session will be enough.. Or if I should plan on another one.. or just plan on it just not working at all..

I haven't ever tried it....but our family doctor also practices this so I might consider it if we go overdue.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I've never tried it, so I can't really give any advice. I hope that your appointments go well!

acupuncture was what put me in labor. (i mean greated since 41w I tried castor oil, blue cohosh, spicy foods, eggplant parm, nipple stim, walking miles even in the sand, swinging, jumping, yoga ball bouncing, DTD, etc) I was 41w4d when I had the acu session, DS was born 26 hours later. My acu recommended booking another session for the next day as it usually takes 2 days, which is what I'd recommend for 38w since your body may or may not be ready? you can always cancel if it works. which is what i had to do. GL!

No, but was going to if I went late. When Liev was born we switched Pediatricians and he also does accupuncture, so maybe some day
