    Hello girls,

    Anyone here has tried or knows someone who has tried acupuncture to induce labor?

    I was really hoping that it would happen naturally but i got given a cut off time...if baby Crystal doesn't come before monday i'll be induced :( so today i went for my first acupuncture session...i'm really hoping it will work:flower:

    Just a quick update - i did go into labour after my 3rd session. i really think it helped because while i was having my 3rd session we got my contractions to come every 10min. they slowed down after i left but not even 24hrs later my baby was born.

    my dr was ready to make me accept the c section on monday but my little girl came the saturday before :)
