Acupressure is an age old process of encouraging Birthing Time to start. Here is a link to a book you can download with information.

It is also beneficial to consciously explore your feelings about your baby's birth and let go of any *control issues*. Here's a good way to do that:

Write down exactly what things you are trying to control with this baby's birth and give it to your birth partner. Take a bath with nice glowing candles all around. Have your partner sit close by and bring you into hypnosis with the word, "Release". Your lightswitch will turn Off and just relax. Have him/her read each concern to you and give you the suggestion that whatever happens with that particular scenario, all will be well, and you are to just let it go. (i.e.: that whenever the baby is born, whoever is in attendance, however your birthing goes, all will be fine.) With each one, just let it all go. Wrap each concern up in black box and send it way out into the universe until you can't see it at all. When you are finished, have your birth partner guide you to visualize your birthing, ending with the holding of your sweet baby in your arms, and allow yourself to feel the joy. Imagine that you've already given birth and everything was fine, just the way it was, no matter what. Give up trying to control anything about this birthing and just let your baby come to you.

The Come Out Baby script is good for this also.

This goes far beyond Fear Clearing and will allow you to just let go of the control that so many of us want to have over the birthing process. Nature has a plan and we must respect that.
