Cathy Morton (CPM)
"This was the most effective workshop! I walked away with the ability to immediately apply what I learned due to the great hands-on time. A day well spent!
Jennifer Hirsch (CNM)
"I just used your Acupressure point on a client of mine who had nausea and it worked immediately!!!"
Candace Barber (Birth Doula)
"I loved your workshop, Nicholas! I have used the techniques taught by you with every client and have had fantastic results! Everything from decreased anxiety, turning a posterior baby, to pain relief, and starting a labor that had stalled out. Awesome!!! The birth partners were so excited to learn the points too. It really made them feel like a vital component of the birth "team" by being able to provide the comfort and encouragement needed to have a completely natural birthing experience. I'm SO happy to have gained this knowledge to share with my clients!"
Prudence Leith (Birth Doula)
"Hi Nick I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful workshop. I attended a birth yesterday and got to put those skills to use. Mom was having an intense labor (very fast and severe back pain) and it was determined that the baby was OP. I shared your notes with the midwife and she gave me the ok to do some Acupressure on my client. The midwife and nurse also joined in and did some pressure points on the hand and foot for pain management, which was pretty awesome. My client said it all seemed to help and within an hour the baby turned! It was great! Thank you Nick!"
Evidence-based research supports the use of Acupressure Comfort Measures to reduce the duration and severity of pain during active phase of labor, cesarean birth rates, and necessity and amount of pitcoin!
Journal of Maternal Fetal Medicine - 2009
Outcomes for the 60 women who received Acupressure:
Had a shorter active phase of labor
Severity of pain was less
41.7 percent of the women needed pitocin
The amount of pictocin was less
Cesarean delivery rate was only 10 percent (This is Amazing!!!)
Outcomes for the 60 women who didn't received Acupressure:
Had longer active phase of labor
Severity of pain was more
63.3 percent needed pitocin
Cesarean delivery rate was 41.7 percent, which is way too high!!!
