Hello im currently 4cm and almost fully effaced and am scheduled to have an induction at the end of this week for medical reasons. (I'm 38 w 3d) I'm just wondering if any of you have had a pregnancy massage and/or acupressure to jumpstart labor and if so how dialated were you and how soon after did you go into labor. Not interested in hearing any drama about letting labor come naturally I don't have that choice.

I've heard of it, didnt try it myself though. My cousin was doing it toward the end of her pregnancy, she still went 6 days overdue.
