My name is Jessi and my son is 5 weeks and 2 days old.  I was due to have him February 1st, but my body wasn't preparing for the delivery. The baby was dropped and in position but no dilation or thinning out on my part so my doctor said if I had no changes by that Monday he would schedule me for C-Section.  I then decided to try acupuncture.  It was a very peaceful and relaxing experience and i feel that it worked. I went back to my doctor to get checked the next day and I was 50 percent thinned and by the time I got to the hospital and hooked up to the monitor I started contracting and dilating without being induced. My baby was born the next morning weighing 9 lb., 7 oz. and 21.5 inches long.  I recommend anyone to try it.
