Re: Who did acupuncture to start labor?

I guess my body was ready to go into labour, but was just procrastinating. lol It just needed a jumpstart (the accupuncture) to get it going.

Re: Who did acupuncture to start labor?

It worked but only after:

We ttried this several times between 37 and 38.5 weeks. Didn't work, Waited until 39 weeks went into hosp for induction, they started pit at 7 am and at 2 my chiropractor called ot check how things were going, very slow, he came for a "visit" between 4-6 pm. Stuck a needle in my toe and one between my neck and shoulder, within 30 secs went into hard labor. It progressed fairly quickly and then slowed, ob broke my water ordered a epi, and then we had baby by 9:20. That is very fast for me. I had the epi due to baby attempting to turn and the possible need to either do a c/s or version quickly. Plu the pain relief was nice. LOL Noah was stubborn and I am glad I had the epi as his shoulders got stuck and his cord was wrapped around his neck and was pinched between my pelvis and his shoulder. My ob literally had to pull him out by the head to save him. He is now seeing a Chiropractor for suluxations throughout his spine. He was a big baby 10 lbs 7 oz. Anyway that is my story. I would do it all again if I ever have the chance for another baby.

Re: Who did acupuncture to start labor?

Quite a story, Betty; thanks for sharing. My doctor says I should wait until 10 days before my due date and then try. I hope it will work!

Re: Who did acupuncture to start labor? **UPDATE**

OB gave me the green light. I'm going to the acupuncturist tomorrow morning! Wish me luck, and send me some of that labor dust!

Re: Who did acupuncture to start labor? **UPDATE**

Nothing yet...sigh. He put needles in my hands (bet. thumb and forefinger, feet (by big toe), ankles, and 4 big ones in my back. It didn't hurt, but I don't know that it helped, either. We'll try again one more time early next week if nothing happens over the weekend. Maybe baby wasn't ready yet...
