Gentle Pain Relief

This 40 minute class by a member of Emma Cannon’s team for pregnant women and their birthing partner teaches useful techniques to relieve pain and encourage an efficient labour using acupressure points.

This effective hands on method can be varied to suit the women’s needs and preferences throughout the duration of her labour.  Acupressure allows the advantage of unrestricted movement and can be used in any labouring position and birthing pools. Feedback from women is that by having the pressure applied reduces the intensity of the contractions, assists the progression of labour and gives the women an overall sense of calm.

You will also be given a comprehensive booklet with illustrations and descriptions that you can follow when in labour.
