Benefits Of A Natural Induction Massage
Should you be overdue and feel uneasy about having a medical induction, a deeply relaxing massage will help prepare your body for birth by encouraging your body and your baby to move into the next stage of labour. Induction massage works by stimulating the following processes:
- Decreasing your body’s stress hormones (cortisol, adrenaline)
- Increasing production of oxytocin, the ‘happy’ hormone released when you’re feeling love, ready to birth to your baby, bonding and breastfeeding.
- Stimulating acupressure points which encourage the baby into position, dilation of the cervix and uterine contractions.
- The use of Rebozo. Rebozo is a long soft cotton cloth ( long scarf) and it can be used in many different ways. It is mainly used to gently jiggle and rock the mother which can relax tight ligaments especially in the pelvis area ultimately helping the mother to let go. It can also assist babies to rotate and move deeper into the pelvis.
This is a gentler and safe way to attempt a natural onset of labour as opposed to a medical induction.
