anyone try massage/pressure points to go into labor?

Anyone try it and have success? How soon did it happen? I had an hour massage and she hit my pressure points...I don't feel any different yet so just curious. My hopes not up!

  • No I didn't but I have heard it can work but you have to be within days of going on your own anyways

  • I did and it didn't work BUT my doula did it DURING LABOR to move things along when they stalled and it HELPED A LOT!

    One of my BFF's Aunt is a massage therapist for a hospital and she came to do the pressure points and massages during her labor. Helped her a lot too!

  • Labor starts when the baby is READY and not before. In fact, it could be harmful to your baby to force labor to start before it io\s time. WHY do so many Moms here want to have so much CONTROL? Let labor start all on its own and be patient/. It is not all about YOU. It is about the baby. So what of you are uncomfortable and want to get it over with. JUST wait! Massage and pressure points? HA. DOes she have a Medical degree?
