Women are interested in a holistic approach to care which is based on the principle that our bodies, minds and spirit are inter related and can therefore affect each other. Acupressure with his holistic approach to care offers and encourages choice and helps support truly women –centered care, enabling each woman to be treated as an individual Research has shown that acupressure is a safe technique and enhances cervical ripening reduces the need for other forms of induction and may reduce the length of labour particularly in the first stage Acupressure for induction of labour is a non - invasive technique, can be applied easily, and without side effects. It can be started at home when labour begins, and promotes partner involvement . Acupressure for induction of labour should be an option available to women in childbirth as it would allow them to regain some control of their birth experience ,as well as facilitating a more natural and less medicalized childbirth. Being drug –free and therefore having not harmful teratogenic effect ,acupressure provides a much safer and satisfying childbirth experience I believe that using acupressure would provide better care to women, whilst empowering them through offering choice experience

Founder of Sweaty SistersAustralia
I thought it was cancer at worse, perhaps dementia. It started with memory loss, then came the weight gain. Hot sweats during the night turned into hot sweats at every time of day. The aching joints began to grow in number and in pain. The brain fog got so bad I couldn’t remember why I went to the shops, or even what I was saying mid-sentence. And the tiredness, oh god, I was just totally overcome with lethargy. And once your body starts to fail it’s not long before your self-confidence crashes. The things I would say to myself were horrible. I was a failure in my own eyes, a health professional who couldn’t handle her own health. It was hard to operate my body, it was hard to talk to people and it was hard to look in the mirror. But perhaps the hardest pill to swallow was that all of this, the sweats, the aches, the memory loss, the weight gain, all of it, was totally natural. A process that every woman’s body is programmed to go through at this age. This wasn’t a degenerative brain disorder or malignant cell growth. This was just my body running out of the hormones Oestrogen and Progesterone: Menopause. I felt like I was a prisoner in a failing body and there was no escape. It felt like the start of the slow decline to death. But I am here to tell you that it’s not. This isn’t the end. I made a decision not to live my life overcome by symptoms. To take charge of my body and my mind. To not become a shadow of my former self. You can too. My name is BronHadley and I am the founder ofSweaty Sisters. A movement of women who don’t want a life defined by menopause, but one defined by ourselves. Together we can take charge of our bodies, re-instate confidence and find our magic again.
