There are many reasons towards the end of pregnancy where women either want to or need to go into labor. Sometimes it's a medical reason and they're facing a short window before being medically induced. And sometimes people are just super uncomfortable and ready to have the baby. In our office we use a combination of chiropractic and massage an acupuncture to help. With chiropractic and massage, we can open up the joints and muscles of the pelvis to take away resistance with the baby's natural ability to move down and put pressure against the cervix which is what naturally stimulates labor. Using acupuncture we can stimulate the points that release oxytocin and oftentimes we see women start having contractions right there in our office. And we'll leave them on the acupuncture stimulation for over an hour and oftentimes they'll leave our office and go straight to the hospital or go home and have the baby.
