Re: Acupressure points for bringing on labor

  • I had heard about this and wasn't sure if this was on the web. I knew that some doctors warn women in their last trimester to be careful with pedicures for this reason.

  • Just curious - you are only 39 weeks, why the urgency to bring on labor? I could understand to try at 40 weeks but you are not even overdue.

  • K - Her baby is measuring pretty large, if I am remembering correctly, and she's worried that the longer it goes the bigger.  She's also pretty uncomfortable.

    I might, if the alternative is induction!  I hope you get to have labor *right* when you hit term, I know it drives you nuts!  :)

  • LOL - I know I was complaining the last time around Wink. I think I can be a little more patient this time, as Sarah is taking a lot of time and energy now. I am really counting the days I need to be pregnant - you know how I dislike it.

  • In addition to the leg/foot, there are points on your hand and in the roof of your mouth that are supposed to induce labor.  From what I've heard, that spot above the ankle is the most powerful though.  Can't hurt to try if you're close to your EDD or post-date.
