Learn acupressure to ease your labour
Acupressure for pregnancy and labour
Are you pregnant and counting down your last weeks? Are you feeling anxious about your labour? There are well-tested safe techniques and tools to help you feel more in control and to relax into the labour.
You can learn acupressure for labour in just 1 hour
Acupressure is not a massage, they are simple pressure techniques to activate the acupuncture/acupressure point. You don’t need to know anatomy, or be good at massage. In just 1 hour you will know how to find and activate acupressure points for labour and will be confident to use them when the time comes.
Take your partner and come to this fun and highly interactive 1 hour workshop to learn how acupressure points work, how to locate and use them.
How acupressure can make your labour more efficient?
Acupressure is safe and effective way to promote efficient labour. Studies show that acupressure reduces time in labor, c-section rates, helps with pain management.
Feedback from the midwives and the couples that used acupressure during the labour show that it helps women to feel more in control, be calm going through contractions and can help to turn the baby from the posterior to anterior position. In addition experience shows that new mothers are able to cope with anxiety and fear better with acupressure. Acupressure after labour can help to establish lactation and ease post labour pains.
It’s important that it involves your partner and he can play an active role in the birthing process.
And remember, less stress for you – less stress for your baby!
