Maternity Acupressure is considered to be one of the best natural induction methods, and is the third most used method in the world. It can have a very positive effect when preparing you and your baby for labor and throughout the labor process. It is a very simple hands-on technique that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Using Acupressure to induce labor is highly recommended because not only does it induce labor, it can ease the discomforts of childbirth and speed up the birthing process.
Men and women both understand how difficult giving birth can be. Although men may not experience childbirth first hand, the intense feeling of pain can very easily be read from their loved one giving birth. Many women feel they must use various drugs and medications offered by the hospital just to help deal with the pain both during and after labor.
But medical inductions are becoming more and more expensive, therefore, less and less people are able to justify their cost. Luckily, there are number of ways to induce labor naturally and at home. Some are more effective than others, of course, but the list includes aromatherapy, belly massages, exercise routines, and more.
Maternity Acupressure is a naturally appealing option to use when inducing childbirth, and it only makes sense to use it in conjunction with the soothing properties of aromatherapy. When paired with aromatherapy oils, acupressure can help the mother relax her entire body for the coming process. Aromatherapy will help to relax tensed muscles, creating a better environment for performing acupressure easily. Stress can be relieved, and can be soothed by natural scents, such as prime rose or raspberry. Primrose oil is already a popular oil being used to help the cervix begin to dilate.
When the baby drops to the cervix, the oil will serve as a lubricant to help push the baby out, reducing the amount of friction and pain the mother feels. When used in conjunction with acupressure points designed to help strengthen contractions and ease pain, the aromatherapy technique can work wonders in eliminating pain. This is also very helpful in recovery and there are no medication side effects to worry about.
Don’t let the cost of a medical induction force you to carry your baby past term. Be sure to check into your options before you feel forced into making a decision like that!
