  • I did the pressure points on my feet for about a week before I went into labor. I would sit and rub my feet for an hour each night if not more all day long pushing on the main pressure points, I went mudding in our jeep and then did the pressure points about 3 times in a matter of a few hours and finally went into labor at 39 weeks and 1 day.

  • It only works if your body is ready and I even paid for a prenatal massage and everything at 37 weeks and 5 days and nothing happened, I was dilated and effaced and having contractions but nothing happened until 39 weeks.

  • I sat with my feet under my belly in a half assed indian style position and rocked back and forth to open my hips as well, it was hard but I would lean forward and rub. You go right at the arch of your foot, from the ball to the heal and apply gentle pressure. You will feel it when your doing it right as you should contract a little.
