Chiropractic care to induce labor?

At my appointment today my chiropractor mentioned that I can make an appointment in a few weeks and she can help get contractions started if I haven't had the baby yet.

I'm waiting for test results to see if I have Cholestasis and if I do I'll most likely have to be induced next week (37 weeks) I was worried about bring induced with a VBAC but now I'm thinking if I do have to be induced I'm going to try this! Just wondering if anyone else has done this and does it work?

I had heard of accupressure points that were supposed to help. Not sure if it's similar to what she would be doing, she just said it has to do with my feet.

 Yes lots of ladies have; I have.    It's a great and safe alternative to other options, so if you're facing a medical induction then do this first!

So it really works? This has me very hopeful if my tests come back bad. I was honestly very worried about a pitocin induction. I will most definitely be going to the chiropractor before heading to the hospital if I need to be induced! I didn't even know this was possible.

 It does for a lot of women, although it didn't induce me.   My body really wasn't ready yet....    But still, it is a great alternative to invasive measures and risky interventions.
Best wishes!!

I wish I had tried it. Or at least tried to get everything in the right position. My hips were all messed up and my baby was laying sideways and facing backwards. I bet just getting that fixed would have allowed me to go into labor. I say it is worth a try if you have cholestasis.

I saw my chiropractor often in my last pregnancy, especially towards the end. I didn't go into labor until almost 41 weeks. It sure felt good getting adjusted though!

it's not a regular adjustment she said she'd be doing, but something with my feet.
