Has anyone had acupuncture done to try and induce labor? Has it Worked?

at my 38 week appointment I was 3cm and 80%. I had acupuncture done yesterday and tomorrow is my 39 Week check up I'm hoping that the acupuncture helped. Anyone else tried this ever?

  • Seems like a waste of money since baby will come when he/she is ready anyway. But best of luck...kind of interested to know if it actually works

  • oh, I didnt pay for it, my moms boss is chiropracter and she just did it for me,lol. I wouldnt have paid to have it done. i'm not THAT desperate, but if It's free why not try, I'd rather have induction that way then with pitocin I guess.
