Just thought I would let you know, When I had my anti-natal class the other night we were given a talk from a local acupuncturist. who was telling us how it could be used to induce labour, they stick sime diddy pins in you leg and run a small electric current through it. Anyway he said that after one treatment 70% of women go into labour with 2 days! So I know where Im going when I get to 40 weeks! The midwives running the class were very supportive of this method, as its less invasive than being unduced at the hospital and they have found that even the 30% of people it didnt bring on, when they were induced it was a lot easier and quicker as the cervix was a lot softer than it would have been normally.
