Introduction to Acupressure and Breathing for Childbirth

What makes this Childbirth guide so different?

Hi! I’m Laurie Binder and this DVD is to teach you and your birth partners how to use breathing and acupressure techniques to help you have a calm and efficient labor.

I created this natural childbirth system after teaching hundreds of couples Lamaze childbirth techniques and working with pregnant patients in my acupuncture fertility practice. In both instances I was preparing these people for labor in their last month of pregnancy.

So many of these parents to be were looking for ways to combine techniques from birth classes with acupuncture points. There are specific Acu-points that can be used to help the cervix dilate, move energy, therefore the baby downward, and calm the mother. In addition organized breathing techniques can help manage pain and distress. Proper breathing will increase oxygen to the mother and baby. These are simple effective tools that can help your labor be efficient and progress smoothly.
