  • Accupressure uses no needles. That is acupuncture. I used accupressure throughout my first pregnancy for nausea all the time. It does work and you can do it to yourself. I still uses it to releif sinus pressure.

  • It's still needles (sharp pointy objects meant to go in the flesh) IMO. I know what it is. But anything poking or prodding or being inside MY body? Haha. No. I am good.

  • Just pressing spots on your ankles isn't going to work, there's a lot more to it than that. It's very specific spots, and on more than just your feet/ankles. It's also not going to put you into labor if your body just isn't quite ready - if you're already in labor but progressing slowly it'll help, or if your body is truly ready it'll help start but may not have a full effect. I went to my chiropractor to try accupressure to start labor - I was definitley far enough along (40 weeks, I knew exactly when I conceived so there was no doubt I was 40 weeks) and it didn't do much. Went back again a few days later and it still didn't help much - and my chiro definitely knows her stuff, anything she's done otherwise has worked. So, in a nutshell, yes I believe in it, but you're not going to do anything to yourself, and if you're not truly term, chill out for a couple more weeks then have it done professionally.
