Now we are all guilty from time to time of multi-tasking, not paying attention, or maybe even daydreaming a bit during a conversation with someone. Well, do you ever wonder what it would be like to induce a state of conciousness where time stops and you are neither here nor there and your thoughts just drift in and out like waves in the ocean. Well aculand is the place, and acupuncture is how you get there. As the needles are inserted into the body the body releases chemicals that induce a state of relaxation and peace. This place or state of mind has been nicknamed in the acupuncture profession as aculand….a place we all want to live.
There are many ways to get labor started. Having been pregnant twice myself I have had some personal experience with delayed labor. One of the easiest ways to start labor is sex. The ejaculate contains prostaglandins and having an orgasm releases oxytocin which both are very effective at starting labor. If that doesn’t work there is always nipple stimulation and walking up and down steps. If you still are waiting i would recommend acupuncture and then I would try the dreaded castor oil. I did acupuncture to induce my labor and it worked after the second try. I was very determined to have a natural childbirth so acupuncture was a natural choice. As an acupuncturist myself I was very pleased with the results. I often have patients come in to my clinic with delayed labor and I have even had a patients’ water break on my table during the process. Believe me it works.
