While we believe it is best to allow labor and birth to come naturally on its own, there are situations where women can greatly benefit from an induction massage. This massage also helps ensure that the pelvis is labor ready. A labor ready pelvis is one that is not bound by tight fascia, muscles or ligaments. This is vital in allowing the opening of the pelvis for the baby to come through as efficiently as possible.
This 90 minute session was developed and is performed by, experienced Doula and Licensed Massage Therapist, Jennifer Roberts. She has used her 18 years experience as a Doula and her 8 years of experience as a massage therapist to develop a labor induction massage with a high success rate. Using relaxation, acupressure, specific techniques to open the pelvis, and exercises for homework, most women report going into labor within 2-3 days of their first session. If baby isn't ready, labor won't start, but this massage will still pave the way toward a more efficient labor. Women also report a significantly faster labor. Women must be in their 38th week or later unless approved by care provider.

Old adhesions from invasive treatments and injuries to the pelvic and abdominal area, including fibroids, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are diminished when addressed by uterine massage.
