I use Acupressure points for clients who are pregnant, in labour, and in their postpartum periods.
For pregnancy and labour the purpose is to facilitate and promote a more efficient and less painful labour. Acupressure points can help with nausea, hemorrhoids, low back pain, and other pregnancy related complaints along with pain relief, anxiety, repositioning posterior babies, high station babies, restarting contractions, encouraging the cervix to dilate, failure to progress etc. I also encourage closer partner involvement by instructing your birth partner to safely and correctly administer acupressure points.
For Postpartum Periods Acupressure may help with after-pains during breastfeeding, breast discomfort and pain, perineal discomfort, hemorrhoids, low back pain, hip pain, sciatica, sacral pain, coccyx pain, baby blues and mild postpartum depression, difficulty in let-down reflex and insufficient lactation, incisional discomfort and other postpartum-related complaints.
