Labor Acupressure

Labor Acupressure is a safe and effective alternative to medical labor indcution in a hospital. Labor Acupressure is a natural method that rapidly increasing group of labor care professionals are using and recommending to pregnant mothers, especially those who are threatened by medical labor induction. This is because labor acupressure provides a safe and natural alternative to induce labor, without the risks of pharmaceuticals.

The holistic and natural approach of labor acupressure in bringing on the process of childbirth has absolutely no effect on the unborn baby as no unnatural substance is being introduced into the body. It?s safe for the mother, as well, because it only helps your body to function better. The worse possible side effect is a slight chance of soreness at the site of pressure point stimulation after repeated treatments of the acupressure points for labor.

Labor Acupressure encourages the labor to start by helping the cervix to ripen and dilate, and stimulating the contractions. Some labor acupressure points help to get the baby to engage better, if he hasn?t descended well.

A recent study tested labor acupressure on a group of women who were near or past their due date, and used a control group of women in similar condition. (Complement Ther Med. 2005) The pregnant women in the control group were not given acupressure treament. As the result of acupressure treatment, women in the acupressure group went into labor naturally, significantly more often than the women in the control group not using any acupressure techniques.

The management of labor pain and the prevention of suffering are major concerns of many labor care professionals and expectant mothers. As the risks of pain medications are now known better, the non-pharmacologic approaches for managing labor pains are becoming more common among midwives and pregnant mothers who have educated themselves about the topic.

Stimulation of specific labor acupressure points for pain relief has been shown to increase the release of endorphins which are extremely effective natural painkillers that also improve the body?s performance and promote positive feelings. A recent study revealed that treatment of one single pain relieving pressure point remarkably reduced labor pains, according to the ratings that birthing mothers gave during their labor and delivery (J Altern Complement Med. 2004).

Additionally, the study showed that the total labor time (measured from 3 cm dilatation to delivery) was, surprisingly, much shorter in the labor acupressure group than in the control group not using labor acupressure.

Mothers who have used labor acupressure have been incredibly satisfied with the method. They felt that it was very helpful in keeping the control of their own labor and delivery. They found that labor acupressure helped their cervix to dilate, encouraged the contractions, and managed the labor pains, without the fear that the labor would slow down.
