Labor Induction Massage
You made it! You have arrived at your due date, it came and went.
If you have found yourself exploring the many options of "labor induction methods," and are considering Massage Therapy, you are welcome to try in a very safe & warm environment with a skilled Therapist. Many times moms just need a place to let go and let their body begin to work. We use a very gentle method with special oils in efforts to induce labor. There is not a "magic button," but many times the moms that come for a natural induction do go into labor as desired. The best and most effective Induction efforts are when mom has completed her to-do list or has lost it and has no intention of finding it before baby comes. In other words, she is ready! Labor Induction Massages are recommended as many days in a row as needed. If you are unable to make it more than one day,a minimum of 90 minutes is recommended for Labor Induction efforts.
