Natural Methods of inductionIf you would like to know about ‘natural’ methods of inducing labour, we can also help you separate the myths from the facts and point you towards the things that might actually help! We can even offer a ‘getting labour started’ session for women over 38 weeks. This two hour session involves a series of gentle stretches, exercises, movements and massage which are designed to help increase space in the pelvis and move baby lower down and into a more optimal position for starting labour. We finish with a gentle relaxation designed to help release any stress hormones which may be inhibiting labour and boost oxytocin levels.
