+ Encouraging Better Positioning
Truth be told...
The most amazing thing about birth I've learned is how the bodies of the baby and the birthing person work together
symbiotically in labor
- and yet -
optimal positioning is
what most pregnant people say
they know the least about,
and what many who gave birth via Cesarean say they wish they'd known more about.
Why the Position of the baby and the birthing mother matters
The birthing body supports the pregnancy with ligaments, muscles, and bones. When these structures are balanced, the baby is cradled in a way that is aligned for better comfort in pregnancy.
An optimally positioned baby descends into the pelvic bowl (engages) more efficiently. Babies who are engaged at the time that labor onsets have a much higher likelihood of being born vaginally.
When the bodies of baby and birthing person are aligned, labor follows a more effective pattern- allowing for greater coping and a simpler birth.

Consider Additional Support...
Childbirth Education is essential to building preparation. Doula support will help you put your preparation into action, by guiding you with comfort techniques at home via phone, text and Zoom calls. With this interaction, your doula can help you decide when to make the move to the hospital and assist with navigation of choices you face there throughout your labor and after your birth.
