Evidence has shown that acupressure during labour can reduce the pain intensity and the need for pharmacological pain relief, as well as reducing the likelihood of needing a caesarean section.

Acupressure also provides the support person (such as the woman’s partner) a valuable and central role to support her throughout the labouring; building intimacy, trust and a shared experience in the journey.

Join me in this interactive 30-minute workshop to learn:

  • how to confidently locate the key acupoints to apply during labour, and in the weeks leading up to birth
  • the major actions of each point (e.g. downward descending, ripening the cervix, pain relief)
  • which points to avoid until after 39 weeks
  • the technique to apply in acupressure.

Each ticket is valid for two people (one pregnant mama plus her support person). Places are limited to 3x couples per workshop to maintain COVID-19 safety. Email me at keryn@kerynhawker.com to reserve your spot.
