Acupressure to Induce Labor
I am 38 weeks pregnant and scheduled to be induced at 39 weeks due to low iron.  Will acupressure points work to induce labor?  I would much rather induce naturally at home than have to be induced with pitocin.  How long after massaging the points should I go into labor?

Usually this type of naturally induction requires several sessions to "prep" before induction can really happen.

You can always try stimulating some of the pressure points at home with your husband under the advice of an accupressurist....we tried a few of the points before my induction and every single time I got very painful cramping contractions but they fizzled the SECOND we stopped the pressure...and we kept at it for awhile, but I actually didn't have any significant contractions until I was actually in active labor.
