Upright Active Birth

Posted on: 27 August, 2020

Labour and birth Positions:

Most of the time when we imagine giving birth or see someone labouring on the tv , they are usually in a bed, probably on their back…. however… as more has been studied and learned about optimal positions for birthing research has shown that variety, being more upright and using gravity has so many benefits for mother and baby such as:
– shorter labour
– increased maternal satisfaction
– less likely to require assistance
– encourages optimal foetal positioning
– easier to breathe the baby down/ push
– less risk of foetal distress

👯‍♂️Myself and the lovely @pamjdpilates did an Insta Live and discussed using balls, beds and different positions for birth.
