Austin Area Birthing Center

Acupressure points to support labor

This class is taught by Sage Acupuncture at the Austin Area Birthing Center

In this training, you and your birth partner will learn simple and effective acupressure techniques to help guide your body into labor as well as assist you during labor. By stimulating specific points on the arms, legs, and torso we can facilitate cervical ripening, encourage regular and efficient contractions, and manage pain during labor. Coupled with the Sage labor preparation acupuncture series, which starts at 36 weeks gestation, these acupressure points have been shown to reduce the duration of labor and the need for medical interventions, help women manage discomfort, and support labor to unfold naturally.

Patients love us!

I was recommended to Sage Acupuncture by my team at Texas Fertility Center... they not only helped increase my fertility, but worked on other related issues like my digestion and anxiety as well as periodic headaches and allergy symptoms. - Meg H.

Sage Acupuncture is simply wonderful! I've been a client for over two years, before, during and after pregnancy. - Shannon H.

These ladies are great-- very knowledgeable, kind and gentle. I started a year ago to help with fertility, my progesterone was extremely low. Within a few months it was within normal range and I was pregnant. I then continued all throughout my pregnancy for maintenance and comfort.
- Stacia D.

Sage provided the ultimate support I needed in my fertility journey. I couldn't have asked for a better team and now my daughter just turned 1! I first came to Sage filled with pessimism, frustration, sadness, anger and ultimately because of their support felt hopeful again, empowered, healthier and happier. Other than the actual baby... working with you ladies was the best part of my fertility journey! - Anne M.
