How do you use acupressure?

If your body and the baby are not ready you’ll probably only experience uncomfortable cramping. Considering due dates are an estimate and not every woman has a 28 day menstrual cycle (that’s how the due date is configured for ALL OB patients!), your baby being born now could be too early for him/her.

If you are facing a hospital induction certainly bring on the professional shiatsu practitioner, acupuncturist or reflexologist. But I wouldn’t recommend trying to induce without a skilled professional knowing how much pressure to give, what points to use and when, and for how long to maintain the pressure.
