Has anyone gotten a pedicure and foot massage that has caused labor to begin?
My friend's mom wanted to treat me to a pedicure before baby #2 is born but when she talked to her pedicurist, she said they do not give foot massages to pregnant women because there are pressure points that could cause labor to start early. Has anyone heard of this? I have heard of pressure points in the foot but I did not know they could cause labor!
If this is the case, has anyone gotten a foot massage near their due date to help get the baby out?
