Want extra space for your baby to move down in labour? Labouring and birthing off your back (i.e. upright, hands and knees etc.) allows your Rhombus of Michaelis, the kite shaped area in your lower back, to open up like a butterfly giving baby an extra couple of centimeters! That's a lot when you consider a baby's head usually moulds to 10cm or less during birth...
Like to find out more about making space for baby in labour, and how to help baby begin labour in an optimal position? You'll find lots of great information on these topics in The Birthing Room's new Online Antenatal Classes! Due for release in March 2018!
Today the cat and I are hard at work creating a segment on Optimal Foetal Positioning for The Birthing Room's new Online Antenatal Course. I think the cat has optimal cat positioning sorted 😉
