Beautiful Bellies offers mums a 60 minute labour Induction support massage with 30 minutes of reflexology/ acupressure therapy, suitable from 38 weeks of pregnancy. Baby, It’s Time massage is a well-known and safe method to assist with the onset of labour.
What is acupressure good for?
Studies show Acupressure not only helps pregnant women prepare for labour, but it is also a very efficient tool during childbirth for pain relief, helping babies to descend, and also with stimulating lactation/let down once baby arrives. Acupressure is an ideal option for mums who enjoy having an effective body treatment with or without oil.
Acupressure treatment combined with a massage will relieve both the physical and mental discomfort of pregnancy while relaxing mum in her late stages promoting the oxytocin hormone that supports contractions and the onset of labour.
Why Night time?
Melatonin is the key, this fabulous hormone interacts with oxytocin to promote contractions, and melatonin is the hormone that is responsible for encouraging us to go to sleep! So clearly it reaches its peak during the dark hours, making us more likely to go start contracting in the evening.
From 37 weeks, this treatment is used to assist in naturally inducing labour. I have found this to be one of the most effective, safest, and most pleasant, methods of
assisting with natural labour.
