Post due-date Treatments

Loving couple embracing in apartment

Once your pregnancy reaches 40 weeks, you will be deemed ‘post-dates’, or past your estimated due date. Did you know that only 4% of babies arrive on their due date? You may be offered induction, however may choose to try and bring on labour naturally. There are lots of self- help ways to do this, however a treatment (or course of treatments) at Mumma Earth, provides a safe and evidence-based way to encourage your labour.

Benefits of Post due-date Treatments include:

  • Increasing oxytocin levels
  • Easing anxiety and aiding relaxation
  • Aiding the onset and progress of labour
  • Reducing need for medical intervention
  • Improving relationships with your partner

The treatment

Use of acupressure point stimulation, aromatherapy massage and relaxation mind massage will encourage relaxation and stimulation of the love hormone ‘oxytocin’. You are welcome to attend these sessions with your birthing partner in order for them to be taught the acupressure points and massage techniques to use at home. You will be provided with a 20ml blend of aromatherapy oil to use at home. You may only require one session, however multiple sessions will provide the greatest benefit.

Each session will include 15 minutes acupressure point stimulation, 30 minute back neck and shoulder massage and a 20 minute relaxation mind massage.
