Acupressure Before and During Labour

Pile of towels in a treatment room
There is a collection of acupressure points that are useful before and during labour. Around 36 weeks I advise you to bring your birthing partner and I will demonstrate these and get them to practice them on you. Their uses include:


  • Improve sleep
  • Help to energise and to relax
  • Increase blood supply to the uterine muscles
  • Soften and strengthen tendons and ligaments


  • Help soften and ripen the cervix
  • Help regulate and strengthen contractions
  • Help to energise and to relax
  • Increase endorphin levels
