pedicures :)

Ok so I know massages are banned during pregnancy. Well not recomomended I should say. Cause the massage can cause you to go into labor.
What about Pedicures? Is it true a foot rub can cause you to go into labor?
or is that another myth?

I am almost 35 weeks prego. :)

  • I googled your question...and it seems like there is in fact a pressure point on your foot that can send you into labor. I'm not sure how hard or for how long the person would have to massage that particular pressure point, though : /

  • Yes there is a spot on the foot. When I was being induced a friend of mine that does all that massage stuff was working on it.
    Check at www.reflexology-usa.net they have charts that tell you where all those different ponts are. THe human body tuely is amazing :o)
