I am 41 weeks in a few hours. DP and I are looking for the points on the body to try to massage to enocurage labor: acupressure.<br><br>
Any visual or text resources available online? Do any of you know the points?

A good massage therapist will know right where they are and how to best activate them, because they have to know to avoid them in early pregnancy. An acupuncturist might also be worth looking into!<br><br>

Rubbing the webbing between my thumb and pointer-finger worked for me. It didn't induce labor, but once I was in labor I could tell that it had an effect.

The day (41+ weeks days) I went into labor I used a pressure point on my ankle in the morning. And then hand (if I remember correctly).<br>
Not sure if that is what got it started or not but she was born that day!
