Images - Acupressure points to induce labor naturally-with pictures and video

Updated on June 2, 2013

If you are over the due date or is very close to 40 week pregnant, acupressure may be an ideal way to induce labor naturally. In several parts of asia, this method has been used to jump-start labor in the late time of pregnancy. There is also research from University of North Carolina that says women who got acupuncture were more likely to go into labor without a medical "push." Their study shows 70% of the women who got acupressure went into labor without medication or any other artificial means. Acupressure not just induce labor but also reduce the pain during delivery.

In this article, I have added few photos that shows the acupressure points. You can ask your husband to massage these crtical points for couple of minutes.

How to identify the points: The picutures in this article shows the pressure points. There is also a video at the end of this article demonstrating the therapy. When your husband/therapist touches these points you will feel a special sensation all around the body. This is one way to confirm if he is touching the right pressure points.

I hope this article helps you and I wish you all the best for the baby

Caution: If you have medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes or other chronic illness, consult your doctor before applying these pressure points.

      Hi emdi.

      Having been a reflexologist and Shiatsu Therapist for over thirty years may I strongly suggest you offer information on where people may take classes before trying any of these. There is so much more to know than just the pressure points. For example if someone is diabetic and an untrained person uses one of these points they may go into shock.
