Labour Acupressure Classes are provided at The Orange Grove Clinic by childbirth specialist, Rebecca Geanty.
This 4 hour labour acupressure course runs over 2 weeks – new course dates Tuesday 4th June and Tuesday 11th June – 7pm – 9pm. £50 per couple.
These practical classes are designed to provide you and your partner with the tools to be able to administer a natural and effective source of labour pain relief, using acupressure. The birthing partner will discover how they can be of great use during the birthing process, supporting their loved one and helping to relieve any labour pain.
Testimonial from Previous Course:
“Doug and I attended your acupressure for labour workshop at OGC in September… we ended up having a very fast labour, from waters breaking with only medium strength contractions about an hour before to delivery about 45 mins later going pretty much straight into 2nd stage labour. Once things got started, contractions were very strong very fast!
Doug used the back pressure points and I used the hand/thumb point at the start of each of these contractions and had brilliant results! They instantly took the edge of, reducing ‘pain’ significantly. This then gave me the chance to get my breathing under control which I couldn’t do without the acupressure. We both were relieved and comforted to have something ‘to do’… We both wanted to say thank you and pass on our very positive experience! Please feel free to use any of this as a testimonial for any future courses, we would highly recommend it!” Amy and Doug (and baby Lily)
