    Default Acupuncture and massage to being on baby

    Ok so I know it is really early but my last two bubs went over and with the pain I am in already I don't want this baby going too far over
    So my question is, who has had massage and acupuncture to bring on bub? And has it worked?

    I had acupuncture - labour inducing acupuncture by an acupuncturist who specialises in pregnancy/ivf etc. I had treatment on the friday at lunch time and waters broke on saturday night. I was 41+5 on the day of treatment and baby came on 42 weeks to the day. The acupuncture brought on strong labour pains while i was on the bed, so i know it actually did something. The contractions died off an hour later much to my dismay, however the lady did say I would have the baby within 48 hrs and she was right. She left some needles in me, on my little toes, on my legs and on my shoulders.

    I tried it as a very last resort after trying all of the other "natural things". I wish i had just done it earlier and saved myself a lot of heartache!

    So acupunture gets a huge YES from me!

    Had acupuncture a couple of times. Last was 48 hours before I went into labour. Bubs was born at 41 weeks though, so it's anyone's guess as to whether or not the acupuncture had anything to do with it.

    Reading the PP- didn't feel anything while I was there apart from bubs waking up and squirming a bit.

    I should also add - The needles were hooked up to a tens machine, which at first was a little annoying but comfortable. Just a pulsing sensation like someone flicking you. Then i had huge full on contractions, of which i had never had at any time during my pregnancy.

    The baby may have come on its own but I can never be sure

    im doing it weekly but not as induction technique. due to be induced at 39 weeks but want my body as prepared as possible so it doesnt take to much hopefully a stretch and sweep will do the job.
    its so relaxing im 31 weeks only jist started but i love it, but yeh he wont do it for induction.
