Make sure that if have acupuncture or a treatment that involves pressing on certain points of your body that the person doing it is aware of your pregnancy and experienced in knowing the points to avoid in pregnancy.  There are certain points when pressed that can help induce labour so unless you are at the end of your pregnancy and keen to bring on the labour they should be avoided.   These points are called Spleen 6 (SP6), Bladder 60 (BL60), Gallbladder 21 (GB21) and Large Intestine 4 (LI4).
