Acupressure and Labour

Having a baby is one of the most life changing experiences of a woman’s life. Labour is a beautiful, sometimes challenging and amazing process. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is optimizing a woman’s health during pregnancy to have her at her best for the labour process.
There are many ways to support a labouring mama–one that has been studied over and over again is the use of acupressure. By applying pressure at specific points, the intensity and feeling of pain or panic can dramatically be decreased. I have taught partners and have supported moms using this technique with wonderful results. Not only is it effective, but it also empowers the birth partner to know what to do! One partner copied all the of the points on cue cards and memorized them to and from work on the go-train. When labour day came, he felt confident with his knowledge and was able to help his wife much more.
