Have you tried acupressure/acupuncture for encouraging labor?

I have. It never worked for me in any immediate way, but it was a relaxing time of day each time I went in. lol!

  • I had accupressure done at 39 weeks, but didn't really notice anything. Later on, in thinking back, I did think it helped start it, but not enough for actual progressive labor - I had contractions every 5 minutes for a week but didn't dilate in that time. I wonder if another round of it after a few days would have helped.
