Loredana is teaching nationally and internationally workshops for midwives on the use of acupressure for pregnancy and birth. Since introducing the workshop in Italy “Acupressure for pregnancy and birth” many hospitals are introducing acupressure for labour preparation, induction of labour and for pain relief.
Loredana is using acupressure whiting her clinical practice facilitating home birth and supporting women for labour preparation and induction of labour
She strongly advocates the use of acupressure internationally as it will allow midwives to expand their role, becoming more complete and independent practitioners. Acupressure being drug –free and therefore having not harmful teratogenic effect, provides a much safer and satisfying childbirth experience as well as facilitating a more natural and less medicalized childbirth.
