Acupressure for Pregnancy, Labour and Postnatal time

Maternity Acupressure Workshop

If you’re a midwife, student midwife, doula or a reflexologist, then please read on to find out more about our acupressure 1-day competency-based workshop.

This one day workshop is a combination of theory, research and practical on the use of 10 acupressure points that can be used safely during pregnancy, labour and postnatal period: nausea & vomiting, breech or posterior presentation, labour ’priming’, encouraging strong contractions, retained placenta, afterbirth pains, and promoting breastfeeding. 

Research published in peer-reviewed medical and midwifery journals conclude that acupressure is a safe, non-invasive, non pharmacological method of reducing nausea in pregnancy, breech presentations (baby upside position), duration of labour and pain in labour.

The morning session covers basic background information on acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), research studies findings, 8 acupressure points and safe methods used. The role of the partner and support persons to use these points is discussed. 

The afternoon session provides a safe practical hands-on session that involves locating the 8 acupressure points. Along with provided handouts (written information and diagrams), time is allocated for all participants to demonstrate that they are able to locate the points accurately on each other.

Workshop: Darwin NT- Saturday 20th August 2022 9am- 4.30pm: 

                    Cairns Qld: September 2022: Dates and venue to be confirmed.
